On October 10, 2019, HEXO provided preliminary fourth quarter 2019 financial results, expecting revenue between $14.5 million to $16.5 million, well below previous guidance expecting CAD $24.8 million. The Company also withdrew its fiscal 2020 outlook.
On this news, HEXO’s share price fell $0.83, or over 22%, to close at $2.85 per share on October 10, 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 HEXO’s reported inventory was misstated as the Company was failing to write down or write off obsolete product that no longer had value; (2) that HEXO was engaging in channel-stuffing in order to inflate its revenue figures and meet or exceed revenue guidance provided to investors; (3) that HEXO was cultivating cannabis at its facility in Niagara, Ontario that was not appropriately licensed by Health Canada; and (4) that as a result, HEXO’s public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.
