What is this Case About: PureCycle Technologies, Inc. (PCT) Failed to Inform Investors its Ironton Facility Experienced a Power Outage
According to the complaint, in early 2023, PureCycle claimed that it was finalizing construction and commissioning at its first commercial scale recycling facility (the “Ironton Facility”). On September 13, 2023, PureCycle disclosed that its Ironton Facility experienced a full plant power outage on August 7, 2023, which required the facility to halt operations. The Company further disclosed that it replaced a seal that purportedly failed as a result of the power outage, and initiated facility restart procedures on September 11, 2023. On this news, PureCycle’s stock price fell $1.395, or 18.4%, to close at $6.18 per share on September 14, 2023, on unusually heavy trading volume.
