Upstart Holdings, Inc. (UPST) Investigation:

The investigation focuses on Upstart's claims that its proprietary AI algorithm allows banks to lower loss rates by 75% while keeping approval rates constant, and its assurances that it could "absorb and distribute credit risk."

The company's claims began to come into question on May 9, 2022, when Upstart announced poor Q1 2022 financial results, slashed revenue outlook, and disclosed a whopping $604 million of loans residing on its balance sheet – an amount that is more than twice that held as of Dec. 31, 2021.  During the earnings call that day, management disclosed it was using company capital as a "funding buffer for core personal loans."

This news drove the price of Upstart shares crashing 56% lower on May 10, 2022, wiping out over $3 billion of value, and resulted in a slew of analyst downgrades and target price reductions.

"We're focused on investors' losses and whether Upstart misrepresented the effectiveness of its algorithm and the degree to which it was insulated from credit risk," said Reed Kathrein, the Hagens Berman partner leading the investigation.
