According to the Complaint, the Company made false and misleading statements to the market. Vertex announced it would acquire an oil refinery in Mobile, Alabama, with the plan to partially convert it for the production of renewable diesel fuel, which it claimed would improve profitability. The Company were involved in transactions, including the financing arrangement to purchase the refinery, that would lead to significant losses after the acquisition. In fact, these transactions caused the Company to lose $125 million during the class period. Based on these facts, the Company’s public statements were false and materially misleading throughout the class period. When the market learned the truth about Vertex Energy, investors suffered damages.
Join the case to recover your losses.
