Coinbase Global, Inc. (COIN) Made False and Misleading Statements in its Offering Materials Supporting its IPO
According to the complaint, Coinbase held its IPO on April 14, 2021, registering for the resale of up to 114,850,769 shares of its Class A common stock by registered shareholders. The Registration Statement touted the Company’s “robust backend technology system” and emphasized its liquidity and capital resources, noting, “We believe our existing cash and cash equivalents will be sufficient to meet our working capital and capital expenditure needs for at least the next 12 months.” However, the Offering Materials were false and misleading and failed to state that, at the time of the IPO, the Company required a sizable cash injection and the Company’s platform was susceptible to service-level disruptions, which were increasingly likely to occur as the Company scaled its services to a larger user base.
On May 17, 2021, Coinbase announced plans to raise approximately $1.25 billion via a convertible bond sale, undermining its assurances in the Offering Materials that the Company’s existing cash and cash equivalents were sufficient. On this news, the Company’s stock declined more than 3.7%, to close at $239.00 per share on May 18, 2021. Then, on May 19, 2021, as the value of cryptocurrencies radically plummeted, Coinbase revealed technical problems experienced by users, including “delays… due to network congestion” effecting “those who want to get their money out.” On this news, Coinbase’s stock declined nearly 6%, to close at $224.80 per share on May 19, 2021.
