About the Lawsuit

Pegasystems and certain of its executives are charged with failing to disclose material information during the Class Period, violating federal securities laws. 

On May 9, 2022, post-market, the Company disclosed that a Virginia state court jury deliberating over a lawsuit brought by one of its principal competitors, Appian Corporation ("Appian") for stealing its trade secrets and violating the commonwealth's computer crime law had awarded Appian more than $2 billion for the Company's "willful and malicious" trade secret misappropriation.

On this news, shares of Pegasystems plummeted from $65.93 per share on May 9, 2022, to close at $52.25 per share on May 10, a one-day decline of 21% that wiped out over $1 billion in market capitalization.

The case is City of Fort Lauderdale Police and Firefighters' Retirement System v. Pegasystems Inc., et al., No. 1:22-cv-00578.
