What is this Case About: According to the complaint filed against Pegasystems, Pegasystems' products and the revenue generated from those products were, in large part, the result of theft of trade secrets from one of its competitors. On May 29, 2020, Appian Corporation sued Pegasystems for stealing its trade secrets and violating Virginia's computer crime law.

Pegasystems, in violation of SEC reporting requirements, for two years did not publicly disclose Appian's lawsuit in its public SEC filings. On May 9, 2022, Pegasystems disclosed that the Virginia circuit court jury awarded Appian more than $2 billion for Pegasystems' trade secret misappropriation, which is estimated to be the largest damages award in Virginia circuit court history. On this news, Pegasystems' stock price fell 21% and lost over $1 billion in market capitalization, closing at $52.25 on May 10, 2022. Securities analysts voiced their concerns of the news, lowering their ratings and noting that the lawsuit, misconduct, and jury verdict would negatively impact the Company's ability to obtain future business, including contracts with governmental authorities.
