According to the Complaint, the Company made false and misleading statements to the market. Astec suffered from numerous costly problems with its wood pellet plants. These problems stopped the Company's plants from operating at their promised production levels. The ongoing problems presented a threat to Astec's business and financial performance. Based on these facts, the Company's public statements were false and materially misleading throughout the class period. When the market learned the truth about Astec, investors suffered damages.

Join the case to recover your losses.
