NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--On April 15, 2021, Robbins Geller Rudman & Dowd LLP (“Robbins Geller”), representing the Court-appointed Lead Plaintiff, was appointed Lead Counsel in a class action brought on behalf of purchasers of Triterras, Inc. (“Triterras”) (NASDAQ:TRIT;TRITW) securities between August 20, 2020 and December 16, 2020 (“Class Period”) for violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Based in Singapore, Triterras operates a blockchain-enabled commodities trading platform known as Kratos.
The claims arise out of a November 2020 transaction in which Netfin Acquisition Corp. (“Netfin”), a special purpose acquisition company (or SPAC), acquired Triterras Fintech Pte. Ltd. (“Fintech”), resulting in Triterras’s formation. Certain investors holding Netfin securities (NASDAQ:NFINU; NFIN; NFINW) were asked to vote on the transaction, and Netfin securities later became Triterras securities. As with many SPAC transactions, however, information later emerged which called into question representations to Netfin investors and, later, Triterras investors.
The initial complaint, filed in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York, alleges claims against Triterras and its Chairman/CEO Srinivas Koneru, as well as former Netfin President Marat Rosenberg. It alleges that during the Class Period, the defendants failed to disclose: (i) the extent to which Triterras’s revenue growth relied on affiliated commodities trader Rhodium, which referred users to the Kratos platform; (ii) that Rhodium faced significant financial liabilities; and (iii) that, as a result, Rhodium was likely to refer fewer users. While this information was withheld from the market, Triterras securities traded at artificially inflated prices, with its share price reaching a high of more than $14 per share during the Class Period.
On December 17, 2020, Triterras disclosed that Rhodium was seeking a moratorium to shield itself from creditors while it sought “to restructure its debts.” News also emerged about relationships between insiders at Netfin and Triterras that raised concerns about Triterras’s management, operations, and representations. In response, the price of Triterras shares fell approximately 31%, to close at $9.09 per share, and the price of its warrants fell approximately 35%, to close at $2.01 per warrant, on December 17, 2020.
Then, on January 14, 2021, Phase 2 Partners LLC issued a report that exposed further information about Triterras and the relationships between insiders at Netfin and Triterras that cast doubt on the business and the defendants’ prior representations. In response, the trading price of Triterras securities declined again, and Triterras pledged to conduct an internal investigation. The result of that investigation remains unknown.
Robbins Geller is in the process of preparing an amended complaint that will strengthen the claims alleged and include additional information on these issues, including the SPAC transaction.
