Loop (LOOP) Securities Fraud Class Action:
The complaint alleges that Loop made false and misleading statements about its purportedly "proven" technology that breaks down PET plastic to its base chemicals at a recovery rate of 100%. The complaint also alleges that Loop misrepresented its partnerships with key customers, including Coca-Cola.
Investors allegedly began to learn the truth on Oct. 13, 2020, when Hindenburg Research published a report concluding, "Loop is smoke and mirrors with no viable technology." Hindenburg reported that: (i) Loop's technology is no more efficient or cost-effective than traditional PET recycling methods and its previous claims of breaking PET down to its base chemicals at a recovery rate of 100% were "‘technically and industrially impossible;'" (ii) under pressure from CEO Daniel Solomita, Loop's scientists were tacitly encouraged to lie about the results of the Company's process internally; and (iii) the Indorama partnership has not even been finalized, and the Thyssenkrupp partnership is on indefinite hold.
Following Hindenburg's report, the price of Loop shares crashed on Oct. 13, 2020.
Then, on Nov. 4, 2020 Loop announced Coca-Cola Cross Enterprise Procurement Group terminated its agreement because "the Company did not satisfy its first production milestone from the joint venture facility by July 2020" as required by the agreement.
"We're focused on investors' losses and proving Loop misrepresented its technological capabilities," said Reed Kathrein, the Hagens Berman partner leading the investigation.
