Kirby McInerney LLP Reminds Doximity, Inc. (DOCS) Investors of Class Action Filing and Encourages Investors to Contact the Firm


The law firm of Kirby McInerney LLP reminds investors that a class action lawsuit has been filed in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California on behalf of those who acquired Doximity, Inc ("Doximity" or the "Company") (NYSE: DOCS) securities during the period of February 9, 2022 through April 1, 2024, inclusive ("the Class Period"). Investors have until June 17, 2024 to apply to the Court to be appointed as lead plaintiff in the lawsuit.

On August 8, 2023, Doximity reported its financial results for the first quarter of fiscal year 2024. While the Company exceeded its quarterly revenue and adjusted EBITDA guidance for the first quarter, the Company provided disappointing guidance for the second quarter of fiscal year 2024 and slashed its guidance for the full fiscal year 2024. In conjunction with the disappointing guidance, Doximity announced that it would reduce its workforce by approximately 10%, a move that was expected to cost approximately $8 million to $10 million. In explaining this about-face, Doximity CFO Anna Bryson admitted that the Company's "major upsells have materially underperformed, and we expect this to continue in the near term." According to Jeffrey Tangney, the Company's CEO, Doximity failed to close sales due, in part, to "fewer face-to-face meetings with our clients." On this news, the price of Doximity common stock declined by $7.49 per share, or approximately 23%, from $32.79 per share on August 8, 2023, to close at $25.30 per hare on August 9, 2023.



On April 1, 2024, Jehoshaphat Research published a report alleging, among other things, that "Doximity's underlying sales . . . are declining at a negative -3-6% rate, but that this decline has been masked through accelerated revenue recognition." On this news, the price of Doximity common stock declined by $1.11 per share over two trading-days, from $26.91 per share on March 28, 2024, to close at $25.80 per share on April 2, 2024.

The lawsuit alleges that, throughout the Class Period, Doximity repeatedly touted the Company's business prospects and the sustainability of the Company's revenue growth and profitability, while downplaying the impact of competition and tightening macroeconomic conditions on the Company and its reliance on "upselling" products and services (such as additional advertising) to existing customers to sustain the Company's performance and future growth.
