The Complaint alleges that Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that:
- Spectrum was facing operational issues with the development of its Ohio and Kansas facilities;
- these issues were negatively impacting production, shipping levels, and sales; and
- as a result of the foregoing, the Company’s financial statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.
On April 26, 2018, Spectrum issued a press release announcing the Company’s financial and operating results for the fiscal quarter ended April 1, 2018. For the quarter, Spectrum reported net income of $0.8 million, or $0.02 per diluted share, compared to net income of $39.9 million, or $0.68 per diluted share for the comparable period in the prior year. The same day, Spectrum also announced that Andreas R. Rouvé had stepped down as Spectrum’s Chief Executive Officer (“CEO”) and Director and that David M. Maura had been named CEO, effectively immediately.
Following this news, Spectrum’s stock price fell $20.50 per share, or roughly 22.10%, to close at $72.22 per share on April 26, 2018.
