A class action lawsuit has been filed against Generac Holdings, Inc., (“Generac”, “GNRC” or the “Company”) (NYSE: GNRC) and certain of the Company’s top executive officers alleging that they violated the federal securities laws.  The lawsuit seeks to represent all persons and entities who purchased or otherwise acquired Generac stock between May 3, 2023, and August 3, 2023, inclusive (the “Class Period”).

Generac designs, engineers, and markets standby power generators. It produces generators for both industry and for home consumers. It also produces other products for industrial and personal use, such as heaters and pressure washers.

The lawsuit alleges that on August 2, 2023, the Company held its Q2 2023 earnings call. During that call, President and CEO Aaron P. Jagfeld revealed lackluster quarterly results, including a $1 billion sales decrease year-over-year and that residential sales decreased 44%.

When explaining that decline, Jagfeld contradicted his May statements discounting macroeconomic trends. He said, “[the Company] underperformed our expectations as a result of the shift in consumer spending patterns,” thus admitting the importance of inflation on consumer spending. Consequently, Jagfeld advised investors, “[t]his weaker than previously expected demand environment is expected to persist in the second half of the year, also contributing to our lower outlooked for residential product sales.” Generac’s share price dropped swiftly in the day after the earnings call. On August 1, 2023, shares closed to $153.38; by the close on August 3, 2023 shares plummeted to $110.77.
