Fluor Accused of Misleading Investors About Its Business Prospects
According to the complaint, on August 14, 2013, Fluor announced that it was starting a natural gas-fueled power station in Virginia and subsequently reported encouraging prospects for other gas projects around the country. For years, Fluor stated that its Oil & Gas group was performing "extremely well" and noted a higher volume of project execution activities, while failing to reveal that it was encountering challenges with its gas-fired power projects. Then, on May 3, 2018, Fluor reported a net loss of $18 million and slashed its guidance for earnings per share from $3.10 to $3.50 per diluted share to $2.10 to $2.50 per diluted share. Fluor also announced that it would stop pursuing the gas-fired power market as 10 of its 12 gas-fired projects initiated since 2003 had underperformed. On this news, Fluor's stock fell over 22% to close at $45.76 per share on May 4, 2018.
