London based Clarivate Plc, an information services and analytics company, provides structured information and analytics for discovery, protection, and commercialization of scientific research, innovations, and brands. On December 27, 2021, Clarivate Plc disclosed in a filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission that "[o]n December 22, 2021, Clarivate . . . concluded that the financial statements previously issued as of and for the year ended December 31, 2020, and the quarterly periods ended March 31, 2021, June 30, 2021, and September 30, 2021, should no longer be relied upon because of an error in such financial statements[.]" Specifically, Clarivate reported that "[t]he error relates to the treatment under U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ('GAAP') relating to an equity plan included in the CPA Global business combination which was consummated on October 1, 2020 ('the CPA Global Transaction'). In the affected financial statements, certain awards made by CPA Global under its equity plan were incorrectly included as part of the acquisition accounting for the CPA Global Transaction."

Shares of Clarivate Plc (NYSE: CLVT) declined from $25.42 per share in early December 2021, to $14.43 per share on February 04, 2022.

The plaintiff claims that between February 26, 2021 and December 27, 2021, the Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that Clarivate maintained defective disclosure controls and procedures as a result of a material weakness in its internal control over financial reporting, that the foregoing material weakness was not limited to how the Company accounted for warrants, that as a result, Clarivate failed to properly account for an equity plan included in its acquisition of CPA Global, that accordingly, the Company was reasonably likely to restate one or more of its previously issued financial statements following its acquisition of CPA Global, and that as a result, the Company's public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.

Those who purchased shares of Clarivate Plc (NYSE: CLVT) have certain options and should contact the Shareholders Foundation.
