According to the complaint, BrightView held its IPO in July 2018, offering its stock at $22.00 per share and generating over $501.2 million in proceeds based on offering documents that failed to disclose that a material portion of BrightView’s contracts were underperforming or represented undesirable costs to the company and that the company’s exit strategy to end its non-profitable contracts would negatively impact future revenue.

Just a month after the IPO, BrightView reported negative financial results and disclosed for the first time that its Maintenance Services revenue was negatively impacted by its Managed Exit strategy. On November 27, 2018, BrightView disclosed that its Managed Exit strategy would result in a decline in revenue of $10 million over the course of fiscal year 2019. Then, on February 7, 2019, on a conference call with investors, the company revealed that underperforming contracts accounted for a $23.1 million drop in revenue for full year 2018, and it expected a loss in revenue of over $25 million for 2019. BrightView’s disclosures have caused the stock to steadily decline, and it now trades at around $15.00 per share.
