(“Kirkland” or the “Company”) (NYSE: KL) between January 8, 2018, and November 25, 2019 (the “Class Period”).

The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and misleading statements regarding the Company’s business, operations and prospects. Specifically, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose: (i) Kirkland lacked adequate internal controls over financial reporting, especially as it relates to its projections of risks, reserve grade, and all-in sustaining costs; (ii) as a result of the known, but undisclosed, impending acquisition of Detour, the Company’s projections relating to its risks, reserve grade, and all-in sustaining costs were false and misleading; (iii) the Company’s financial statements and projections were not fairly presented in conformity with International Financial Reporting Standards (“IFRS”); (iv) based on the foregoing, Defendants lacked a reasonable basis for their positive statements about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects and/or lacked a reasonable basis and omitted material facts.
On November 25, 2019 — following months-long campaign of rosy projections relating to the Company’s key metrics — Kirkland announced that it entered into a definitive agreement to acquire all of the outstanding securities of Detour for $3.68 billion. On this news Kirkland’s shares declined 17%, to close at $39.44 on November 25, 2019, on unusually high trading volume.
