According to the complaint, on December 16, 2021, after the market closed, Meta, the parent company of Facebook and Instagram, issued a “Threat Report,” which included the results of its “months long” investigation into the “surveillance-for-hire industry,” revealing for the first that Cognyte regularly targeted, without their knowledge, journalists, dissidents, critics of authoritarian regimes, families of opposition, and human rights activists around the world. This conduct “violated multiple Community Standards and Terms of Service,” and “given the severity of their violations” Meta disabled Cognyte’s ability to use its platforms.

On this news, Cognyte’s stock price plummeted over 31% on unusually high trading volume, closing at $8.03 per share on April 5, 2022.

Finally, on June 28, 2022, Cognyte released its first quarter 2022 financial results. According to the complaint. these results once again badly missed analyst estimates across the board. On this news, Cognyte’s shares declined $1.84, or 28.66%, to close at $4.58 per share on June 28, 2022.
