BENSALEM, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Law Offices of Howard G. Smith announces that a class action lawsuit has been filed on behalf of investors who purchased Canopy Growth Corporation (“Canopy” or the “Company”) (NYSE: CGC) securities between June 21, 2019 and November 13, 2019, inclusive (the “Class Period”). Canopy investors have until January 21, 2020 to file a lead plaintiff motion.
Investors suffering losses on their Canopy investments are encouraged to contact the Law Offices of Howard G. Smith to discuss their legal rights in this class action at 888-638-4847 or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
On November 14, 2019, Canopy reported a CA$32.7 million restructuring charge “for returns, return provisions, and pricing allowances primarily related to its softgel and oil portfolio.”
On this news, Canopy’s stock price fell $2.66, or over 14%, to close at $15.84 on November 14, 2019, thereby injuring investors.
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 the Company was experiencing weak demand for its softgel and oil products; (2) that as a result, the Company would be forced to take a CA$32.7 million restructuring charge due to poor sales, excessive returns, and excess inventory; 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.
If you purchased Canopy securities, have information or would like to learn more about these claims, or have any questions concerning this announcement or your rights or interests with respect to these matters, please contact Howard G. Smith, Esquire, of Law Offices of Howard G. Smith, 3070 Bristol Pike, Suite 112, Bensalem, Pennsylvania 19020 by telephone at (215) 638-4847, toll-free at (888) 638-4847, or by email to email@example.com, or visit our website at www.howardsmithlaw.com.
