NEW YORK, NY – December 9, 2019 – Kaplan Fox & Kilsheimer LLP (www.kaplanfox.com) has been investigating claims on behalf of investors who purchased shares of Yext, Inc. (“Yext” or the “Company”) (NYSE: YEXT), a Search Experience Cloud company.

On August 29, 2019, Yext reported Second Quarter Fiscal 2020 results for the three months ending July 31, 2019.  Among other things, the Company said it would be launching Yext Answers (“Answers”) with the mission of “Perfect Answers Everywhere.”  The Company also provided its financial outlook for the Full Year Fiscal 2020, including projected revenue of $299 million to $301 million.

On October 29, 2019, Yext announced the launch of Answers and said “[t]his launch is the latest step furthering Yext’s mission to deliver perfect answers everywhere.”

On December 5, 2019, after the market closed, Yext reported its Third Quarter Fiscal 2020 results for the three months ended October 31, 2019, which included lower projected revenue for the Full Year Fiscal 2020 in the range of $296.5 million to $298.5 million.  Among other things, the Company indicated that the launch of Answers during the third quarter “did delay our deal cycles.”  Additionally, CEO Howard Lerman further explained that “any time you launch a new product it’s going to be a little bit disruptive” and that the launch had “slowed the deal cycles down a little bit for upsells, for new customers.” 

Following the news, Yext’s common stock fell about $2.34 per share, more than 14%, to close at $14.26 per share on December 6, 2019.
