The Complaint alleges that during the Class Period, Barrick made materially false and/or misleading statements, and/or failed to disclose materially adverse facts about its business, operations, and prospects. On April 24, 2017, the Company revised its full year guidance, stating that “[f]ull-year gold production is now expected to be 5.3-5.6 million ounces, down from our previous range of 5.6-5.9 million ounces.” Barrick also revised guidance specific to the Veladero mine, projecting full-year production at Veladero of 630,000-730,000 ounces, compared to the previously-issued guidance of 770,000-830,000 ounces. The slowdown in Veladero production stems partly from a work stoppage at the mine caused by alleged environmental pollution. Following this news, Barrick’s stock price dropped materially, which caused investors harm.
