CASE ALLEGATIONS: F45 Training is a fitness franchisor with a business model based on rapid growth through the franchising of low-overhead fitness facilities. F45 Training went public in a July 16, 2021 IPO in which it issued 18.75 million shares priced at $16 per share. F45 Training, via its IPO offering documents, asserted its advantage over traditional owner-operated fitness facilities both because its franchise model “has enabled us to open new studios at an accelerated pace versus the owner-operator model” and because it generated quick revenue because “[f]or the majority of franchises that we sell, we receive an upfront payment from the franchisee.”
However, as the F45 Training class action lawsuit alleges, the IPO’s offering documents misled investors regarding F45 Training’s revenue stream and its ability to maintain its rapid expansion business model. Specifically, the IPO’s offering documents failed to disclose that F45 Training could not maintain new franchise growth because it was offering more favorable payment terms to multi-unit franchisees. F45 Training’s lackluster pace of growth was also accompanied by a massive and unsustainable increase in F45 Training’s accounts receivable and a similar, and equally unsustainable, decrease in its cash and cash equivalents. These practices were not sustainable at the time of the IPO and, when F45 Training could no longer sustain this defective business model, its growth rate and revenue plummeted.
