BOSTON, MA / ACCESSWIRE / September 23, 2020 / Thornton Law Firm alerts investors that a shareholder class action lawsuit has been filed on behalf of shareholders of Nikola Corporation (NASDAQ:NKLA).

The Complaint alleges that Nikola purports to operate as an integrated zero-emissions transportation systems provider. It is alleged that throughout the Class Period, Defendants failed to disclose to investors a number of facts, including that Nikola's founder and CEO had repeatedly misrepresented and exaggerated Nikola's financial, technological, and operational profile, which thus presented a materially false image of the Company's growth and success, thereby artificially inflating the Company's stock price.

The lawsuit also alleges that on September 10, 2020, Hindenburg Research published a report that it had gathered "extensive evidence-including recorded phone calls, text messages, private emails, and behind-the-scenes photographs," and had identified "dozens of false statements by" Milton. The Complaint alleges that on this news, Nikola's stock price fell $4.80 per share, or 11.33%, to close at $37.57 per share.

It is further alleged, that on September 14, 2020, after the market had closed, Bloomberg reported that the SEC was investigating Nikola to assess the merits of the Hindenburg Report, and on September 15, 2020, the Wall Street Journal reported that the Department of Justice had joined the SEC's investigation. The Complaint goes on to state that Nikola's stock fell an additional $0.17 per share during intra-day trading, to close at $32.83 on September 15, 2020, allegedly harming investors.

The lawsuit alleges violations of the federal securities laws, and the class has not yet been certified. Until certification occurs, you are not represented by an attorney.

The lead plaintiff serves as a representative of all investors in the lawsuit. Interested NKLA shareholders have until November 16, 2020, to apply to be a lead plaintiff.
