The lawsuit has been filed in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Oklahoma on behalf of all those who purchased Mammoth securities between October 19, 2017 and June 5, 2019 (the “Class Period”). The case, Scuderi v. Mammoth Energy Services Inc. No. 5:19-cv-00522 was filed on June 7, 2019 and has been assigned to Judge Scott L. Palk.
The lawsuit focuses on whether the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws by making false and/or misleading statements and/or failing to disclose that: (1) Mammoth’s subsidiary, Cobra, improperly obtained two infrastructure contracts with PREPA that totaled over $1.8 billion; (2) specifically, the contracts were awarded as the result of improper steering and not a competitive RFP process; and (3) as a result, Defendants’ statements about Mammoth’s business, operations and prospects were materially false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis at all relevant times.
Specifically, on May 24, 2019, the Wall Street Journal published an article entitled “FEMA Official Probed Over Puerto Rico Power Restoration” stating that the Federal Emergency Management Agency (“FEMA”) Deputy Regional Administrator, who oversaw FEMA’s response to the damage brought by Hurricane Maria, was under investigation by the Department of Homeland Security (“DHS”), was relieved of her duties and placed on administrative leave over allegations that she steered work to Cobra.
On this news, the Company's stock price fell—over three trading days—from $12.24 per share on May 23, 2019 to $10.99 per share on May 29, 2019: a $1.25 or 10.21% drop.
Then, on June 5, 2019, the Wall Street Journal published an article titled, “Puerto Rico Grid Contractor Caught Up in Federal Probes”. According to the article, the Department of Homeland Security’s Inspector General is investigating one of Mammoth Energy’s subsidiaries in Puerto Rico to determine how the company came to dominate the power restoration efforts there since 2017. The Federal Bureau of Investigation opened a related criminal investigation.
On this news, the Company' stock price fell—over two trading days—from $11.20 per share on June 5, 2019 to $6.11 per share on June 6, 2019: a $5.09 or 45.45% drop.
