According to the Complaint, the Company made false and misleading statements to the market. Alta Mesa and Kingfisher were touted as “superior quality” and “[w]orld [c]lass” assets compared to other oil & gas companies. In fact, the Company faced serious operational setbacks. Other major oil companies had moved assets away from the region that Alta Mesa operates in. The Company made a series of corrective disclosures, with the final disclosure occurring on February 25, 2019, when the Company announced a delay in the release of its 2018 financial results. Over the course of these corrective disclosures, Alta Mesa stock lost 95% of its value. When the market learned the truth about Alta Mesa, investors suffered damages.

Join the case to recover your losses.
