The complaint alleges that during the Class Period, Ferrellgas made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose: that its propane sales were declining; that the Company’s midstream logistics business was being negatively affected by lower crude oil prices; that Ferrellgas’ Adjusted EBITDA would fall below its projections; that the Company was becoming increasingly leveraged and would need to obtain an amendment under the secured credit facility and accounts receivable securitization facility to increase the maximum leverage ratio to a range of 5.95x - 6.05x; that Ferrellgas would likely need to reduce its dividend; and that as a result of the above, the Company’s statements about its business, operations, and prospects were false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis at all relevant times. On September 28, 2016, Ferrellgas announced that it had a net loss for fiscal 2016 of approximately $665 million, whereas it had a net profit of $29 million for fiscal 2015. Also, the Company’s President, CEO and Director Stephen Warnbold resigned immediately. When this news was announced, shares of Ferrellgas dropped in value sharply, causing investors harm.
