LOOP Stock: Berger Montague Investigates Alleged Securities Fraud Claims Against Loop Industries, Inc. (NASDAQ: LOOP); Lead Plaintiff Deadline is December 14, 2020

DATE: November 3, 2020

PHILADELPHIA, Nov. 3, 2020 – Berger Montague is investigating potential securities fraud claims against Loop Industries, Inc. (“Loop” or the “Company”) on behalf of investors who purchased Loop securities (NASDAQ: LOOP) between September 24, 2018 and October 12, 2020 (the “Class Period”).

A recently filed lawsuit accuses the Company of falsifying its proprietary chemical processes for plastics recycling, based on a report published by Hindenburg Research on October 13, 2020. The Hindenburg report, titled “Loop Industries: Former Employees and Plastics Experts Blow The Whistle On This ‘Recycled’ Smoke And Mirrors Show,” cited a months-long investigation that included conversations with former employees, polymer/plastic experts, and competitors, and characterized Loop’s purported “breakthroughs” in polyethylene terephthalate plastic recycling as “fiction.”

According to the Hindenburg report, former employees “painted a picture of a chaotic company whose lead scientists are twenty-something ‘liars’ with no relevant work experience.” The report concluded by stating that “in the words of a former Loop employee, we simply ‘don’t really think they have the technology.’”

Following the report, Loop’s shares fell sharply, declining $3.78 per share – a dramatic 32% – to close at $7.83 on October 13, 2020.

If you purchased Loop shares during the Class Period, you may seek Court appointment as lead plaintiff to represent other injured investors in a class action. The lead plaintiff appointment deadline is December 14, 2020. You do not need to be a lead plaintiff to share in any potential Class recovery.
