INVESTOR ALERT: Law Offices of Howard G. Smith Announces the Filing of a Securities Class Action on Behalf of Enviva Inc. (EVA) Investors
Law Offices of Howard G. Smith announces that a class action lawsuit has been filed on behalf of investors who purchased Enviva Inc. ("Enviva" or the "Company") (NYSE: EVA) common stock between November 3, 2022 and May 3, 2023, inclusive (the "Class Period"). Enviva investors have until November 13, 2023 to file a lead plaintiff motion.
Investors suffering losses on their Enviva investments are encouraged to contact the Law Offices of Howard G. Smith to discuss their legal rights in this class action at 888-638-4847 or by email to [email protected].
On May 3, 2023, Enviva lowered its Full Year 2023 guidance and suspended its dividend payments going forward. The Company predicted that its 2023 EBITDA would be significantly lower and its net loss would be higher, stating that "contract labor is too high, discipline around repairs and maintenance spendis insufficient, wood input costs need to come down further and stay there, and utilization rates at specific plants need to improve and stabilize at those improved levels."
On this news, Enviva's stock price fell $14.34, or 67.2%, to close $7.01 per share on May 4, 2023, thereby injuring investors.
The complaint filed in this class action alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and/or misleading statements, as well as failed to disclose material adverse facts about the Company's business, operations, and prospects. Specifically, Defendants failed to disclose to investors: (1) 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; and (2) as a result, Defendants' positive statements about the Company's business, operations, and prospects were materially misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis at all relevant times.
If you purchased Enviva common stock, have information or would like to learn more about these claims, or have any questions concerning this announcement or your rights or interests with respect to these matters, please contact Howard G. Smith, Esquire, of Law Offices of Howard G.
