Latch, Inc. (NASDAQ: LTCH)

NEW YORK, NY – August 27, 2022 – Wolf Haldenstein Adler Freeman & Herz LLP is investigating whether Latch, Inc.  (“Latch” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: LTCH) complied with federal securities laws.

Latch Inc., a maker of smart locks and building-management software, went public in a merger with a special purpose acquisition company (“SPAC”) backed by New York-based real estate firm Tishman Speyer in early 2021. It has traded as high as $19.70 per share after listing. It closed on August 26, 2022 at $0.9477 after announcing a material financial accounting restatement.

Latch cited material errors and possible irregularities relating to, among other things, the way it recognized revenue associated with the sale of hardware devices since listing its shares on NASDAQ.

It noted in an 8-K filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission that:

  • The Audit Committee has determined the statements for 2021 and 1Q 2022 will be restated, and;
  • “Based on the preliminary findings of the Investigation, certain revenue recognition errors occurred as a result of unreported sales arrangements due to sales activity that was inconsistent with the Company’s internal controls and procedures”
