SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 08, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Hagens Berman notifies investors in Magnite, Inc. (NASDAQ: MGNI) of the firm’s investigation into possible securities law violations. Magnite investors are encouraged to submit their losses now. The firm also encourages persons who may be able to assist the investigation to contact the firm.
Magnite, Inc. (MGNI) Investigation:
The investigation centers on whether Magnite misled investors about the company’s financial reporting, connected TV (“CTV”) inventory, and other matters after the company was formed in 2020 through the merger of Telaria Inc. and Rubicon Project Inc.
On Jan. 7, 2020, research firm Spruce Point Capital Management published a report stating, “[w]e believe investors are being misguided by Magnite’s growth prospects, and see 25%-50% downside.” According to Spruce Point “[m]ultiple customer interviews all tell us that Magnite does not have much quality CTV inventory to currently sell.” Spruce Point also “believes that Magnite’s financial reporting does not accurately reflect the economics of its business, and may be concealing the struggles of Telaria.”
In response, the price of Magnite shares fell sharply lower.
“We’re focused on investor losses and whether Magnite has been masking business challenges with inaccurate financial reporting,” said Reed Kathrein, the Hagens Berman partner leading the investigation.
