LivePerson to Reschedule Fourth Quarter 2022 Earnings Release and Webcast
Plans to file Form 10-K within 15-day grace period provided by SEC Rule 12b-25
NEW YORK, February 28, 2023 -- LivePerson, Inc. (Nasdaq: LPSN), a global leader in Conversational AI, today announced that it will reschedule its fourth quarter 2022 earnings release and related video webcast due to a delay in finalizing its Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2022. The Company also filed a Form 12b-25 with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to extend the filing deadline for its Form 10-K for fifteen calendar days, until Thursday, March 16, 2022. As long as the Company files the Form 10-K within the fifteen-day grace period, the report will be deemed to have been filed timely by the SEC.
The Company anticipates filing its Form 10-K within the fifteen-day grace period and expects to publish its fourth quarter 2022 earnings release and hold its quarterly video webcast as soon as practicable on or after the date it files its Form 10-K.
This extension provides the Company with added time to perform additional review and testing of revenue recognition with respect to a recently discontinued WildHealth program, for which Medicare reimbursement is suspended pending further governmental review, and to complete its in-process review of internal controls and procedures. WildHealth was acquired by LivePerson in 2022, and integration remains in process.
