This lawsuit is for anyone who acquired securities in Lottery.com, Inc. f/k/a Trident Acquisitions Corp. (NASDAQ: LTRY) from November 15, 2021 through July 29, 2022.
The lawsuit alleges that the Company and certain of its executives violated federal law. Specifically, the lawsuit alleges that, throughout the time period mentioned above, the Company misled investors regarding its financial condition. More specifically, the lawsuit alleges that the Company misled investors by telling investors that the Company had sufficient internal controls over the Company's financial reporting when, in fact, the Company lacked those controls such that the Company was overreporting its revenue and its available cash balances.
On July 6, 2022, Lottery.com disclosed that an internal investigation had uncovered “instances of non-compliance with state and federal laws concerning the state in which tickets are procured as well as order fulfillment” and “issues pertaining to the Company’s internal accounting controls.” The Company also disclosed that it had terminated Ryan Dickinson, the Company’s President, Treasurer, and Chief Financial Officer. On this news, the price of the Company's stock dropped precipitously on unusually heavy trading volume. Then, on July 15, 2022, after the markets closed, Lottery.com announced that its Chief Revenue Officer had resigned. The Company also reported that, after a review of its cash balances, its revenue recognition policies and procedures, and other internal accounting controls, it had “overstated its available unrestricted cash balance by approximately $30 million and that, relatedly, in the prior fiscal year, it improperly recognized revenue in the same amount.” On this news, the price of the Company's stock again dropped precipitously on unusually heavy trading volume. Finally, on July 29, 2022, the Company disclosed that it did not have “sufficient financial resources to fund its operations or pay certain existing obligations” and that it intended to furlough certain employees. The Company also stated that “there is substantial doubt about [its] ability to continue as a going concern” and it may be forced to wind down its operations or pursue liquidation of its assets. On this news, the price of the Company's stock again dropped precipitously on unusually heavy trading volume.
