On March 26, 2024, Direct Digital announced that it missed revenue estimates for the fourth quarter of 2023, citing lower-than-anticipated demand, a delay in the release of Tier 1 publishers from beta testing, and proactive efforts by Direct Digital to accelerate its transition towards a "cookie-less" advertising platform. Chief Executive Officer Mark Walker also revealed that in the fourth quarter of 2023, it "became clearer" that cookie depreciation would begin in the first quarter of 2024 and that "[a]s such, our team proactively began our transition off of cookies for media transactions." 

On this news, Direct Digital's stock price fell $10.47 per share, or approximately 39%, to close at $16.04 per share on March 27, 2024. 

Then, on April 2, 2024, Direct Digital disclosed that a material weakness had been "identified in [its] review of internal control over financial reporting as of December 31, 2023."
