Talkspace, Inc. (TALK) Securities Class Action:

The complaint alleges that Talkspace, HEIC and certain of its top executives and Board members made false and misleading statements in their proxy statement to induce shareholders to vote in favor of the SPAC merger.

Specifically, Defendants mispresented and concealed that Talkspace was experiencing: (1) significantly increased online advertising costs in its business-to-consumer (“B2C”) channel since the start of 2021; (2) lower conversion rates in its online advertising in its B2C business; (3) increased customer acquisition costs and more tepid B2C demand than represented to investors; and, (4) ballooning customer acquisition costs and worsening growth and gross margin trends.

In addition, Defendants overstated Talkspace’s accounts receivable from certain health plan clients in its business-to-business channel.

The truth emerged through partial disclosures beginning on Aug. 9, 2021, when Talkspace blamed disappointing Q2 2021 financial results on increasing customer acquisition costs and a sequential decline in active members in the B2C channel.

Then, on Nov. 15, 2021, Talkspace reported dismal Q3 2021 financial results reflecting slowing revenue growth, a lower number of acquired customers in its B2C business, and an increased allowance for credit losses.

Within a week, co-founders CEO Oren Frank, Head of Clinical Services Roni Frank, and COO Mark Hirschhorn abruptly left the company.

“We’re focused on investors’ losses and proving Defendants concealed known trends to induce shareholders to vote in favor of the SPAC merger,” said Reed Kathrein, the Hagens Berman partner leading the investigation.
