Twersky Law Group, a highly regarded and reputable law firm based in New York, wishes to inform investors about a significant development in the form of a class action lawsuit against DigitalOcean Holdings, Inc. (“Digital Ocean” or “the Company”) (NASDAQ: DOCN) and certain officers of the company. This lawsuit has been filed on behalf of all individuals and entities that purchased or otherwise acquired DigitalOcean securities from February 16, 2023 through August 25, 2023 (the “Class Period”). Investors who acquired DigitalOcean securities during this defined timeframe are strongly encouraged to participate in this case by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline to file a motion for appointment of lead plaintiff is November 13, 2023.
The fundamental objective of this class action lawsuit is to recover for the benefit of investors who purchased DigitalOcean securities during the Class Period, the losses they sustained as a consequence of the misleading statements made by Defendants in violation of the federal securities laws.
ALLEGATIONS AGAINST DIGITALOCEAN HOLDINGS, INC.
After the market closed on August 3, 2023, DigitalOcean Holdings announced quarterly financial results and disclosed that the Company’s previously issued financial statements for the period ending March 31, 2023 should no longer be relied on due to accounting errors that resulted in an overstatement of the Company’s income tax expense in the quarter of approximately $18 million. As a result of the errors, the Company would be restating its first quarter 2023 financials and announced that the restatement would “also include disclosure of an identified material weakness and that our disclosure controls and procedures were not effective as of March 31, 2023.” On this news, DigitalOcean’s stock price dropped approximately 24.8% in intraday trading the following day on August 4, 2023. Throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and/or misleading statements, as well as failed to disclose material adverse facts about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects. Specifically, Defendants misled investors by failing to disclose that: (1) Defendants lacked the skills and experience to assess complicated tax matters and therefore did not design or maintain effective controls over the Company’s accounting for income taxes; and (2) that as a result of the foregoing, Defendants’ financial statements were inaccurate and materially misleading.

It is important to note that a class action lawsuit has already been filed in connection with these allegations. Therefore, for those individuals who suffered financial losses in their investments in DigitalOcean during the Class Period, there is a limited opportunity to seek appointment as a lead plaintiff. This process entails requesting the Court to designate them as the primary representative on behalf of the entire class. The deadline for submitting such a request is November 13, 2023. It is important to emphasize that while becoming a lead plaintiff can offer certain advantages, participation in the recovery process and the potential for financial compensation does not mandate serving as a lead plaintiff.
