Polished.com Inc. (POL) Securities Class Action:

The action alleges that the defendants made false and misleading statements in connection with Polished.com’s initial public offering (IPO), which closed on July 27, 2020.

Specifically, the complaint alleges that the IPO documents misrepresented and omitted that: (1) the company would restate certain financial statements; (2) the company’s internal controls were inadequate; (3) the company downplayed and obscured internal control issues; (4) accordingly, the company would engage in an independent investigation; (5) as a result, the company would hire independent attorneys and consultants and delay its quarterly financial filings in violation of NYSE listing requirements; and (6) after the investigation began, the company’s CEO and CFO would leave the company.

The accuracy of the IPO documents was called into question on February 2, 2022, when Polished.com announced the resignation of its chief accounting officer (Robert D. Barry).

Then, on August 15, 2022, Polished.com announced that it would not timely file its quarterly report for the period ending June 30, 2022. The company disclosed that its audit committee “recently opened an investigation independent regarding certain allegations made by certain former employees related to the business activities of the Company.”

Additionally, on October 18, 2022, Polished.com announced the abrupt departure of its CEO (Albert Fouerti), Chief Financial Officer (Maria Johnson), and Chief Operating Officer (Elie Fouerti) effective immediately.

On November 2, 2022, Polished.com revealed that the audit committee’s investigation focused on employment and inventory management practices.

Each of these disclosures depressed Polished.com’s stock price, hurting investors.

“We are focused on investor losses and proving that Polished.com’s IPO filings did not reveal material flaws in the company’s employment and inventory management practices,” said said Reed Kathrein, Hagens Berman’s partner leading the investigation.
