Sunrun Accused of Hiding Canceled Contracts Figures From Investors
According to the complaint, Sunrun failed to adequately disclose in its public filings how many customers canceled contracts after signing up for its home-solar energy system and that, as a result, Sunrun would be subject to heightened regulatory scrutiny and potential civil sanctions. The cancelation metric is a critical way for investors to evaluate the company's health, but Sunrun continued to provide limited transparency in this regard. On May 3, 2017, The Wall Street Journal reported that Sunrun was the subject of a probe by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC"), revealing that the SEC issued a subpoena to Sunrun and interviewed current and former employees about the adequacy of its disclosures on account cancelations. The article further stated that the cancelation figure grew to be as high as 40% earlier this year, causing Sunrun to halve its growth expectations in 2016 from 80% to 40%. On this news, Sunrun's share price fell $0.46, or 8.83%, to close at $4.75 per share on May 3, 2017.
