(“PureCycle” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: PCT) securities between August 8, 2023 and September 13, 2023, inclusive (the “Class Period”). PureCycle investors have until November 28, 2023 to file a lead plaintiff motion.
Investors suffering losses on their PureCycle investments are encouraged to contact the Law Offices of Howard G. Smith to discuss their legal rights in this class action at 888-638-4847 or by email to email@example.com.
On September 13, 2023, after the market closed, PureCycle disclosed that its Ironton Facility experienced a full plant power outage on August 7, 2023, which required the Ironton Facility to halt operations. The Company further disclosed that it replaced a seal that purportedly failed as a result of the power outage, and initiated facility restart procedures on September 11, 2023.
On this news, PureCycle’s stock price fell $1.395, or 18.4%, to close at $6.18 per share on September 14, 2023, on unusually heavy trading volume.
The complaint filed in this class action alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and/or misleading statements, as well as failed to disclose material adverse facts about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects. Specifically, Defendants failed to disclose to investors: (1) that the Ironton Facility experienced a full plant power outage on August 7, 2023; (2) that there was a risk of additional failures resulting from the August 7, 2023 power outage; and (3) that, as a result of the foregoing, Defendants’ positive statements about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects were materially misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.
