INVESTOR ALERT: Law Offices of Howard G. Smith Announces the Filing of a Securities Class Action on Energy Recovery, Inc. (ERII) Investors

·2 mins read

Law Offices of Howard G. Smith announces that a class action lawsuit has been filed on behalf of investors who purchased Energy Recovery, Inc. ("Energy Recovery or the "Company") (NASDAQ: ERII) securities between August 2, 2017 and June 29, 2020, inclusive (the "Class Period"). Energy Recovery investors have until September 21, 2020 to file a lead plaintiff motion.

Investors suffering losses on their Energy Recovery investments are encouraged to contact the Law Offices of Howard G. Smith to discuss their legal rights in this class action at 888-638-4847 or by email to howardsmith@howardsmithlaw.com.

On June 29, 2020, Energy Recovery announced the termination of its 15-year contract with Schlumberger Technology Corp. ("Schlumberger") for the exclusive use of Energy Recovery’s VorTeq hydraulic pumping system, citing "different strategic perspectives as to the path to VorTeq commercialization." Without the agreement in place, the Company will be wholly responsible for the commercialization of the VorTeq technology.

On this news, the Company’s share price fell $1.31 or over 14%, to close at $7.60 per share on June 30, 2020, thereby injuring investors.

The complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose: (1) that the Company and Schlumberger had different strategic perspectives regarding commercialization of VorTeq; (2) that these differences created substantial risk of early termination of the Company’s exclusive licensing agreement with Schlumberger; (3) accordingly, the revenue guidance and expectations of future license revenue was false and lacked reasonable basis; and (4) as a result, Defendants’ public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times or lacked a reasonable basis and omitted material facts.

If you purchased Energy Recovery securities, have information or would like to learn more about these claims, or have any questions concerning this announcement or your rights or interests with respect to these matters, please contact Howard G. Smith, Esquire, of Law Offices of Howard G. Smith, 3070 Bristol Pike, Suite 112, Bensalem, Pennsylvania 19020 by telephone at (215) 638-4847, toll-free at (888) 638-4847, or by email to howardsmith@howardsmithlaw.com, or visit our website at www.howardsmithlaw.com.
