Atlassian Corporation (NASDAQ: TEAM)

Block, Inc. (NYSE: SQ)

Class Period: November 4, 2021 and April 4, 2022 (including former shareholders of Afterpay securities who acquired unregistered Block, Inc.)

Lead Plaintiff Deadline: April 3, 2023

According to the complaint, on January 31, 2022, Block completed its acquisition of Afterpay, then an Australian limited company listed on the Australian Stock Exchange, pursuant to a scheme of arrangement under Australia’s Corporations Act 2001 (the “Scheme”). Pursuant to the financial terms of the Scheme, Block acquired all outstanding ordinary shares of Afterpay in exchange for 0.375 of a share of newly issued SQ class A common stock or corresponding SQ CDI. Block represented to the Afterpay shareholders that the "Square securities issued in the proposed transaction are anticipated to be issued in reliance upon an available exemption from … registration requirements pursuant to Section 3(a)(10) of the Securities Act." In connection with the Merger, Block offered and sold approximately 113 million unregistered Block shares directly to former Afterpay shareholder. But contrary to their representation to Afterpay’s Board and shareholders, defendants did not satisfy the mandatory conditions necessary to exempt them from registration under §3(a)(10) and permit the issuance and sale of unregistered Block Shares. Nevertheless, and in violation of §§5(a) and (c) of the Securities Act, no registration statement has been filed with the SEC or been in effect with respect to these Block Shares issued, solicited, and sold by means of the Merger.
