On October 12, 2019, the New York Times published an article reporting on PG&E's efforts to deal with the rolling power cuts it had implemented in California aimed at minimizing wildfire risk. The article stated, among other things, that "PG&E's communications and computer systems faltered, and its website went down as customers tried to find out whether they would be cut off or spared." According to the article, "[a]s the company struggled to tell people what areas would be affected and when chaos and confusion unspooled outside. Roads and businesses went dark without warning, nursing homes and other critical services scrambled to find backup power and even government agencies calling the company were put on hold for hours."
On this news, the Company’s stock price fell $0.35 per share, or more than 4%, to close at $7.67 per share on October 14, 2019, thereby injuring investors.
On October 23, 2019, media reported that, as a last resort to prevent additional wildfires, PG&E would begin shutting off power to 179,000 homes and businesses in 17 northern and central California counties.
On this news, the Company’s stock price fell $1.00 per share, or more than 12%, to close at $7.20 per share on October 24, 2019, thereby injuring investors further.
The complaint filed in this class action alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and/or misleading statements, as well as failed to disclose material adverse facts about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects. Specifically, Defendants failed to disclose to investors: (1) that PG&E's purportedly enhanced wildfire prevention and safety protocols and procedures were inadequate to meet the challenges for which they were ostensibly designed; (2) that, as a result, PG&E was unprepared for the rolling power cuts the Company implemented to minimize wildfire risk; and (3) that, as a result, defendants’ statements about its business, operations, and prospects, were materially false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis at all relevant times.
