Philadelphia, Pennsylvania--(Newsfile Corp. - November 3, 2023) - Berger Montague announces that a class action lawsuit was filed in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York on behalf of those who acquired PureCycle Technologies, Inc. ("PureCycle") (NASDAQ: PCT).
If you suffered losses as a result of your investment in PureCycle (NASDAQ: PCT), and would like to learn about a potential recovery, CLICK HERE.
The lawsuit has been filed against PureCycle on behalf of purchasers of PureCycle's securities between August 8, 2023 and September 13, 2023, inclusive (the "Class Period").
The deadline for investors who purchased or acquired PureCycle securities during the Class Period to seek to be appointed as a lead plaintiff representative of the class is November 28, 2023.
The Class Period commences on August 8, 2023, when PureCycle published a press release titled "PureCycle Technologies Provides Second Quarter 2023 Update." Therein, PureCycle stated, in relevant part, that "we initiated a series of activities to evaluate, adjust, and in some cases, replace or repair certain equipment in the purification process subsystems. We recently initiated a re-start of Ironton, and the facility is operational."
The lawsuit alleges that the truth about the company emerged on September 13, 2023, after the market closed, when PureCycle filed a Form 8-K with the SEC disclosing that its Ironton Facility experienced a full plant power outage on August 7, 2023, which required the Ironton Facility to halt operations. PureCycle further disclosed that it replaced a seal that purportedly failed as a result of the power outage, and initiated facility restart procedures on September 11, 2023. Following this news, PureCycle's stock price fell $1.395, or 18.4%, to close at $6.18 per share on September 14, 2023.

A lead plaintiff is a representative party who acts on behalf of all class members in directing the litigation. The lead plaintiff is usually the investor or small group of investors who have the largest financial interest and who are also adequate and typical of the proposed class of investors. The lead plaintiff selects counsel to represent the lead plaintiff and the class and these attorneys, if approved by the court, are lead or class counsel. Your ability to share in any recovery is not, however, affected by the decision whether or not to serve as a lead plaintiff. Communicating with any counsel is not necessary to participate or share in any recovery achieved in this case. Any member of the purported class may move the Court to serve as a lead plaintiff through counsel of his/her choice, or may choose to do nothing and remain an inactive class member.
