Why is Xponential (NYSE: XPOF) stock dropping?
On Monday, June 26, 2023, Fuzzy Panda Research published a report accusing global fitness brand franchisor, Xponential Fitness, of “hiding the fact that many of their brands and franchisees are struggling.” According to the report, “over 50% of XPOF studios never make a positive financial return,” and despite claims from its CEO that it has “never closed a store,” it actually has permanently closed 30 stores. Xponential also allegedly makes up financial metrics by excluding underperfoming stores from certain financial calculations, as claimed in the report.

Fuzzy Panda interviewed a number of former business partners, employees, and franchisees of Geisler, with one anonymous source asserting the Geisler is a “crook” who has perpetrated “so many scams.”
