VALARIS plc (VAL)

Shares purchased between April 11, 2019 and July 31, 2019

Deadline: October 21, 2019

According to the filed complaint, on July 31, 2019, Valaris issued a press release announcing its second quarter 2019 financial results-which missed market expectations. Upon issuance of the press release, analysts at Seeking Alpha published an article on August 2, 2019, entitled "Valaris PLC - Off To A Bad Start." and noted that Valaris' results "shock[ed] investors with massive cash usage [and] . . . surprisingly weak outlook for the ultra-deepwater segment with further dayrate recovery likely delayed until at least the second half of next year." The article further criticized Valaris' free cash flow for the quarter, which was "negative by a whopping $375 million causing the company's remaining pro forma cash balance adjusted for roughly $741 million in payments related to the recent debt tender offer to decline to just $353 million." Following this news, Valaris' stock price fell $3.25 per share, or approximately 39%, over the two trading sessions following its announcement of its quarterly financial results, to close at $5.02 per share on August 2, 2019.
