Li-Cycle Holdings (LICY) Misled Investors About Rochester Hub, Lawsuit Claims – Hagens Berman
HAGENS BERMAN, NATIONAL TRIAL ATTORNEYS, Encourages LICY Investors with Substantial Losses to Contact Firm’s Attorneys Before Jan. 8th Deadline
SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 05, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Hagens Berman urges Li-Cycle Holdings Corp. (NYSE: LICY) investors who suffered substantial losses to submit your losses now.
Li-Cycle Holdings Corp. (NYSE: LICY) Securities Fraud Class Action:
UBS lowered its rating of Li-Cyle Holdings Corp. (LICY) to a Neutral position due to solvency concerns after the company announced it was stopping construction on its Rochester Hub facility. Analyst Jon Windham reportedly believes the firm needs to raise additional capital.
Heightened analyst scrutiny is but one byproduct of the company’s Oct. 23, 2023 announcement that it was pausing construction work on its Rochester Hub project. Another development is an investor securities class action lawsuit brought against Li-Cycle and its executives.
The complaint there alleges that defendants mispresented and concealed that: (1) the Rochester Hub was experiencing escalating construction costs; (2) these escalating costs exceeded the expected aggregate cost of the project; and (3) as a result, the company would be forced to temporarily halt construction and reevaluate the Rochester Hub construction strategy.
Investors learned the truth on Oct. 23, 2023, when Li-Cycle announced that it has paused construction at the Rochester Hub. The company claimed that construction costs have risen, and building will not be resumed until the company completes a strategic review of the project.
This news drove the price of Li-Cycle shares down $1.04, or about 45%, on Oct. 23, 2023.
“We’re investigating whether Li-Cycle may have violated the U.S. securities laws by failing to disclose the company was floundering with the Rochester Hub’s rising construction costs,” said Reed Kathrein, the Hagens Berman partner leading the firm’s investigation.
