Robbins LLP reminds investors that a shareholder filed a class action on behalf of all persons who purchased or otherwise acquired Enviva Inc. (NYSE: EVA) common stock between November 3, 2022 and May 3, 2023. Enviva is a Maryland-based company that develops, constructs, acquires, and operates fully contracted wood pellet production plants.
What is this Case About: Enviva Inc. (EVA) Misled Investors About its Business Prospects
According to the complaint, during the class period, defendants failed to disclose to investors material information about the financial condition of the Company including its EBITDA and net loss forecasts, liquidity position, capital allocations, operation costs, productivity and the impact of these metrics on the Company’s ability to continue paying dividends in 2023.
Between November 3, 2022 and April 3, 2023, Enviva and its senior officers touted the Company's strong financial condition. However, on May 3, 2023, defendants dramatically lowered their FY 2023 guidance downward and suspended Enviva’s dividend payments going forward. Defendants now projected that Enviva’s 2023 EBITDA would be in the range of $200-250 million, net loss would be substantially higher, increasing to a range of $136-$186 million, and Enviva’s $0.905 per share quarterly dividend was eliminated. On this news, Enviva's common stock price collapsed $14.34 per share from $21.35 per share to $7.01 per share, or down 67.2%.
