Boston, Massachusetts--(Newsfile Corp. - May 24, 2021) - Block & Leviton LLP (www.blockleviton.com), a national securities litigation firm, announces that it has filed a class action lawsuit on behalf of shareholders against PureCycle Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: PCT) and certain of its executives for securities fraud. Investors who purchased PureCycle shares between November 16, 2020 and May 5, 2021, and who lost money are strongly encouraged to contact Block & Leviton attorneys at (617) 398-5600, via email at cases@blockleviton.com, or to visit our website for information on the case. The deadline to seek appointment as lead plaintiff is July 12, 2021.

On May 6, 2021, before the markets opened, analyst Hindenburg Research issued a scathing report concerning PureCycle. In its report, Hindenburg wrote that "PureCycle represents the worst qualities of the SPAC boom; another quintessential example of how executives and SPAC sponsors enrich themselves while hoisting unproven technology and ridiculous financial projections onto the public markets, leaving retail investors to face the ultimate consequences." Hindenburg explained that it spoke with "multiple former employees" of earlier companies that PureCycle's CEO and other associated executives took public before PureCycle, "who said that PureCycle's executives based their financial projections on 'wild ass guessing,' brought companies public far too early, and had deceived investors." On this news, PCT shares plummeted from their May 5, 2021 close of $24.59 to a May 6, 2021 close of $14.83, on unusually heavy volume. This represents a one-day loss of approximately 40%.

The lawsuit was filed in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida. The case is captioned Theodore v. PureCycle Technologies, Inc., et al., No. 21-cv-809 (M.D. Fla.), and has been assigned to Judge Paul G. Byron in the George C. Young Federal Annex Courthouse, 401 West Central Boulevard, Orlando, FL 32801. The class period is between November 16, 2020 and May 5, 2021, inclusive. A class has not yet been certified, and until a certification occurs, you are not represented by an attorney. If you choose to take no action, you can remain an absent class member.

If you purchased or acquired PureCycle shares between November 16, 2020 and May 5, 2021 and have questions about your legal rights or possess information relevant to this matter, please contact Block & Leviton attorneys at (617) 398-5600, via email at cases@blockleviton.com, or visit our website. The deadline to seek appointment as lead plaintiff is July 12, 2021.
