On May 2, 2024, Vestis issued a press release reporting its financial results for the second quarter of fiscal year 2024. The Company reported revenue of $705 million, a mere 0.9% year-over-year increase. Chief Executive Officer ("CEO") Kimberly T. Scott was quoted in the press release, stating, "Our results in the quarter and our outlook for the year are not in line with expectations." In the press release, Vestis also provided a "Revised Fiscal Year 2024 Outlook," reporting that it "now expect[ed] to deliver fiscal 2024 revenue growth in the range of [negative] (1)% to 0%." During the corresponding earnings call that day, CEO Scott explained the "challenges" facing the Company "related to sales productivity and deliberate moderated pricing actions." Scott went on to explain, "We also made the recent and deliberate decision to moderate pricing actions in the second quarter and the back half of the fiscal year in order to realize improved retention while we enhance our services processes." The pricing decision, Scott added, "is negatively impacting our revenue and EBITDA in the second half of the year." Later during the same call, Scott revealed that "service gaps" had "driven price sensitivity." Scott added that "we know that more than 70% of the [customer] cancellations are due to causes that are within our control." 

On this news, Vestis's stock price fell $8.31 per share, or 44.99%, to close at $10.16 per share on May 2, 2024.
