CHARLOTTE, N.C., March 17, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- AvidXchange Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq: AVDX), a leading provider of accounts payable (AP) automation software and payment solutions for middle market businesses and their suppliers, is correcting share ownership data that was furnished by various financial data and media services providers to institutional investors and brokerage houses. According to data provided by those service providers, Mastercard Investment Holdings, Inc. had materially reduced the number of shares of common stock of AvidXchange Holdings, Inc. that it held as of the December 31, 2021 filing date. The Schedule 13G filed by Mastercard on February 8, 2022 with the Securities and Exchange Commission reflected no change to its ownership stake. Similarly, share ownership data that was furnished by various financial data and media services providers also reflected a material reduction in the number of shares of common stock of AvidXchange Holdings, Inc. held by shareholders affiliates with Mr. Steve McLaughlin as of October 13, 2021 filing date. This information was also incorrect, and the company has been informed by Mr. McLaughlin that the shares held by these affiliated entities remained unchanged as of October 13, 2021.
