Xponential, headquartered in Irvine, California, is a franchisor of fitness brands. As of December 31, 2022, the Company had over 1,700 franchisees in North America.

The action alleges that, throughout the Class Period, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements about the performance and prospects of Xponential's franchisees, which were largely failing. The Company falsely represented it had never permanently closed a store when in fact over 30 stores had been permanently closed. The Company also did not disclose that most of its store brands were losing money, and that over 100 franchisees were listed for sale at fractions of their initial prices. Xponential concealed these fraught dynamics to investors, thereby fraudulently misrepresenting the financial health of the Company.

On June 26, 2023, Fuzzy Panda, an investment research firm, published a research report titled, "Xponential Fitness (XPOF) - ‘Abusive Franchisor That Is A House Of Cards.'" The research report detailed claims that Xponential's founder and Chief Executive Officer, defendant Anthony Geisler, had a history of misleading investors using high-pressure, or "boiler room," sales tactics. On this news, the price of Xponential common stock fell $9.39 per share, or 37.39%, from its closing price of $25.11 per share on June 26, 2023, to close at $15.72 per share on June 27, 2023.

Then, on December 7, 2023, Bloomberg Businessweek published an article titled, "Club Pilates, Pure Barre Owners Say Xponential Left Them Bankrupt," that corroborated the claims in the Fuzzy Panda report. The Bloomberg Businessweek article included multiple interviews with Xponential's franchisees who revealed that the Company misled them into financially disastrous investments. On this news, the price of Xponential common stock declined $1.59 per share, or 13.04%, from its closing price of $12.19 per share on December 7, 2023, to close at $10.60 per share on December 8, 2023.
