EQUITY ALERT: Barrack, Rodos & Bacine Files Securities Class Action Lawsuit Against F45 Training Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: FXLV)

12/8/2022 - PHILADELPHIA, PA -- Barrack, Rodos & Bacine has commenced a securities class action lawsuit on behalf of purchasers of the securities of F45 Training Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: FXLV) (“F45”) issued in or traceable to the Registration Statement filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission in support of the July 16, 2021 initial public offering of F45 common stock. The complaint is styled Kenzie Goer v. F45 Training Holdings, Inc., et al., Case No. 1:22-cv-01291 and was filed in the United States District Court for the Western District of Texas. A copy of the complaint is available here.

F45 Training Holdings Inc., a Mark Wahlberg-backed fitness franchisor based in Texas, went public in July 2021, when it sold 18.75 million shares priced at $16 per share, while touting a “Predictable, Asset-Light Model Driving Rapid Growth.” The company reported results and issued guidance that was generally expected by the market for about a year after the IPO.

However, on July 26, 2022, F45 issued a press release in which it drastically reduced its financial guidance; disclosed that it would open about 60% fewer exercise studios than promised just two months earlier; said that a $250 million credit line was no longer available to the company; disclosed that the company was letting go of about 110 employees; and announced that the CEO, Adam Gilchrist, had resigned.

The disclosures in the press release sent the price of F45 shares down over 60% on July 27, 2022, and it has continued since that time to trade at less than $4.00 per share.

If you have suffered a loss arising from purchases in F45 stock from July 16, 2021 to the present, you have until February 6, 2023, to file a motion with the Court seeking appointment as lead plaintiff.
