Block & Leviton LLP (www.blockesq.com), a securities litigation firm representing investors nationwide, announces that it has filed a securities fraud class action against XPO Logistics, Inc. (“XPO” or the “Company”) (NYSE: XPO) and certain of its officers and directors. The firm encourages shareholders to contact Block & Leviton LLP ahead of the February 12, 2019 lead plaintiff deadline.

The complaint, filed in the United States District Court Southern District of New York, captioned Leeman v. XPO Logistics, Inc. et al., Case No. 1:18-cv-11741, alleges that between August 10, 2015, and December 13, 2018, inclusive (the “Class Period”), Defendants made false and/or misleading statements, as well as failed to disclose material adverse facts. Specifically, the Complaint alleges the Defendants engaged in improper accounting practices. At the core of Defendants’ scheme was the method by which the Company accounted for its numerous acquisitions, dubious tax accounting, under-reporting of bad debts, phantom income through unaccountable acquisition earn-out labilities, and aggressive amortization assumptions: all designed to portray glowing “Non-GAAP” results. As a result, XPO repeatedly materially misstated its financial condition and operating results and materially misled Class Members.

On December 13, 2018, Spruce Point Capital Management released a report titled “Trucking Ridiculous; End Of The Road.” This report alleges that XPO is plagued by “financial irregularities that conveniently cover its growing financial strain and inability to complete additional acquisitions despite repeated promises.” The report also characterizes XPO’s financials as “unreliable and dubious.”

Following the release of this report, the Company's stock fell more than 26 percent.
