The filed complaint alleges that defendants throughout the Class Period made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that:

  • DocGo's executive hiring processes were inadequate to fully review and vet the professional and academic backgrounds of job candidates;
  • This increased the likelihood of disruptive executive turnover;
  • Contrary to DocGo's representations to investors, DocGo had overstated the efficacy of its
    mobile health and medical transportation services; and
  • all of the above, once revealed, was likely to subject DocGo to significant reputational and/or
    regulatory scrutiny that would negatively impact DocGo's financial position
    and/or prospects.

On July 30, 2023, The New York Times, published an article reporting that "[l]ocal authorities have expressed frustration at the lack of coordination between DocGo and agencies that could provide services to the migrants; local security guards hired by DocGo have repeatedly threatened the migrants; and finding steady work has been nearly impossible."

Following the publication of The New York Times article, the price of DocGo stock fell more than 6%. 

On September 6, 2023, New York City Comptroller Brad Lander announced that his office was declining to approve the Relocation Contract. According to the complaint, New York City Mayor Eric Adams had the authority to proceed with the Relocation Contract over Comptroller Lander's objections and ultimately did so. On this news, the price of DocGo stock fell more than 7%.

On September 14, 2023, the Albany Times Union published an article reporting that former DocGo CEO,
defendant Anthony Capone, had falsified portions of his professional biography regarding his educational history. On the following day, September 15, 2023, DocGo disclosed Capone's resignation as CEO. On this news, the price of DocGo stock fell nearly 12%.

Then on September 18, 2023, Comptroller Lander announced that his office was commencing a real-time audit of operations and invoices incurred by DocGo in connection with its Relocation Contract. Specifically, Comptroller Lander noted that his office has "serious concerns about the selection of this vendor and its performance in contract duties." On this news, the price of DocGo stock fell more than 7%.
