Plug Power Inc. (NASDAQ: PLUG) Securities Fraud Class Action:

The litigation challenges Plug Power's assurances that its buildout and construction of its green hydrogen production plants was“on track” and that it identified multiple non-dilutive opportunities to continue funding its operations.

The complaint alleges Plug Power made misleading statements and failed to disclose that: (1) Plug overstated its ability and efforts to mitigate the negative impacts that supply chain constraints and material shortages could and were having on its hydrogen business, as well as the sufficiency of its cash and capital to fund its operations; (2) it continued to experience delays related to its green hydrogen production facility build-out plans, as well as in securing external funding sources to finance its growth plans; (3) it downplayed the true scope and severity of all the foregoing as these issues were eventually revealed; and (4) as a result of all of the foregoing, Plug also overstated the near-term prospects of its hydrogen production operations, as well as the viability of expanding those operations.

Investors began to learn the truth on Nov. 9, 2023, when Plug announced dismal Q3 2023 results, blamed supply challenges in the hydrogen network in North America and revealed that its then current liquidity challenges raised substantial doubt about its ability to continue as a going concern. This news sent the price of Plug shares crashing $2.40, or down over 40%, on Nov. 10, 2023, and was followed by a wave of analyst downgrades.

Then, on Jan. 17, 2024, the price of Plug shares plunged again after Seeking Alpha reported that“Morgan Stanley analyst Andrew Percoco maintained his underweight rating and $3 price target” and“forecasts $1.26B of revenue and a negative 8% gross margin in 2024, compared to Wall Street consensus estimates for in revenues and positive 4% gross margin.” In addition, the analyst reportedly warned of an increasing probability that Plug would need to raise $1B to of equity capital to fund its highly capital-intensive business.

“We are investigating whether Plug may have deceived investors about the sufficiency of its liquidity,” said Reed Kathrein, the Hagens Berman partner leading the firm's investigation.
