Romeo Power, Inc. (NYSE: RMO) Securities Fraud Action:
The complaint centers on Romeo’s misrepresentations and omissions concerning its access to battery cells, a key component of the company’s battery modules and packs.
During the class period, Romeo emphasized the company’s 4 key battery cell supply partners, which in turn eliminated supply chain risks and support its lofty revenue projections ($11 million for 2020 and $140 million for 2021). The company repeatedly assured investors it had sufficient long-term contracts to supply enough battery cells even in the face of the tight supply.
But the truth emerged on Mar. 30, 2021, when Romeo released a dismal outlook for 2021, reducing its 2021 guided revenues by a whopping 71% – 81%, claiming the shortfall stemmed from a shortage of battery cells. On an earnings call later that same day, management elaborated on the supply constraint, admitting that Romeo depended on just 2 (not 4, as previously touted) battery cell suppliers.
In response to this news, Romeo shares declined $2.04 per share, or almost 20%, in a single trading day.
Most recently, on May 13, 2021, the company announced just $1.045 million revenues for Q1 2021. This was a 58% drop from Q1 2020 and a tiny fraction of the $18 - $40 million 2021 revenue guidance given on Mar. 30, 2021. Management noted the company is still looking for battery cell suppliers.
“We’re focused on investors’ losses and proving Romeo concealed supply chain risks,” said Reed Kathrein, the Hagens Berman partner leading the investigation.
