The lawsuit has been filed in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California on behalf of all those who purchased DXC common stock pursuant and/or traceable to the Company's April 2017 IPO. The case, Costanzo v. DXC Technology Company et al., No. 19-cv-05794 was filed on September 16, 2019, and has been assigned to Beth Labson Freeman.

The lawsuit focuses on whether the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws by failing to disclose to investors: (1) that the planned "workforce optimization" plan involved implementing arbitrary quotas; (2) that the plan would cut thousands of jobs at the Company; (3) that jobs that were particularly at risk of being cut were held by longer-tenured, knowledgeable, and highly compensated senior personnel; (4) that these job terminations were selectively timed to artificially inflate reported earnings and other financial metrics; (5) that, at the time of the Merger, defendant Lawrie had forecasted plans for a $2.7 billion workforce reduction in the first year; (6) that, as a result of these workforce terminations, the Company was unlikely to deliver on client contracts; (7) that, as a result of the foregoing, the Company's clients would be dissatisfied and the relationships would be impaired; and (8) that, as a result of the foregoing, Defendants' positive statements about the Company's business, operations, and prospects, were materially misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.

On February 6, 2019, a civil complaint was filed, alleging that certain officers of the Company were heavily focused on using cost-cutting efforts and layoffs to inflate short-term financial metrics and that these efforts substantially impaired the Company’s ability to deliver contractually required services to clients.

On August 8, 2019, after the market closed, the Company lowered its fiscal 2020 guidance, expecting revenue between $20.2 billion and $20.7 billion, representing a $500 million shortfall from previously issued guidance.

On this news, DXC’s stock fell from $51.65 on August 8, 2019 to $35.91 on August 9, 2019—a $15.74 or a 30.47% drop.

Since the completion of the Merger, the Company's share price has declined by over 40%.

The court-appointed lead plaintiff is the investor with the largest financial interest in the relief sought by the class who is adequate and typical of class members who directs and oversees the litigation on behalf of the putative class. Any member of the putative class may move the Court to serve as lead plaintiff through counsel of their choice, or may choose to do nothing and remain an absent class member. Your ability to share in any recovery is not affected by the decision to serve as a lead plaintiff or not.  

Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP also encourages anyone with information regarding DXC's conduct to contact the firm, including whistleblowers, former employees, shareholders and others.
