Loop Industries, Inc. Investigation
The law firm of Kirby McInerney LLP is investigating potential claims against Loop Industries, Inc. (“Loop” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: LOOP). The investigation focuses on the Company’s possible violations of federal securities laws.
Loop is the subject of a report issued by Hindenburg Research on October 13, 2020. The report, titled “Loop Industries: Former Employees and Plastics Experts Blow The Whistle On This ‘Recycled’ Smoke And Mirrors Show,” alleges that “a former Loop employee told us that Loop’s scientists, under pressure from CEO Daniel Solomita, were tacitly encouraged to lie about the results of the company’s process internally. We have obtained internal documents and photographs to support their claims.” Hindenburg writes that “according to a former employee, Loop’s previous claims of breaking PET down to its base chemicals at a recovery rate of 100% were ‘technically and industrially impossible.’” The report also alleges that “Executives from a division of key partner Thyssenkrupp, who Loop entered into a ‘global alliance agreement’ with in December 2018, told us their partnership is on ‘indefinite’ hold and that Loop ‘underestimated’ both costs and complexities of its process.” Based on this report, shares of Loop fell by more than 32% in intraday trading, to close at $7.83 per share.
