XPO Stock Plunges Over 26% Following Publication of Forensic Investigation
On December 12, 2018, Spruce Point Management published a report about XPO Logistics, claiming that it discovered “financial irregularities that conveniently cover [XPO’s] growing financial strain and inability to complete additional acquisitions despite repeated promises.”
Spruce Point Management reported that it found “concrete evidence to suggest dubious tax accounting, under-reporting of bad debts, phantom income … and aggressive amortization assumptions: all designed to portray glowing [results]” that do not comply with generally accepted accounting principles.
The report also alleged that “XPO insiders have aggressively reduced their ownership interest in the Company since coming public, and recently enacted a new compensation structure… defined in such a non-standard way that it is practically meaningless.”
On this news, XPO Logistics shares plunged more than 26% to close at $44.50 on December 13, 2018, causing significant harm to investors.
