INVESTOR ALERT: Kirby McInerney LLP Announces an Investigation of Shareholder Claims Against Cronos Group Inc.

March 3, 2020 GMT

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mar 2, 2020--

The law firm of Kirby McInerney LLP is investigating potential claims against Cronos Group Inc. (“Cronos” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: CRON ). This investigation concerns whether Cronos has violated federal securities laws and/or engaged in other unlawful business practices.

On February 24, 2020, Cronos announced that it would delay its fourth quarter and fiscal year 2019 earnings release and conference call, previously scheduled for February 27, 2020. No explanation for the delay was given. On this news, the price of Cronos shares fell $0.78, or 10.9%, to close at $6.37 on February 24, 2020.

On March 2, 2020, after the market closed, Cronos announced that it had requested a 15-day extension of the due date for filing of its complete Annual Report on Form 10-K with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). The Company further revealed that the delay was a result of a “review by the Audit Committee of the Company’s Board of Directors, with the assistance of outside counsel and forensic accountants, of several bulk resin purchases and sales of products through the wholesale channel and the appropriateness of the recognition of revenue from those transactions.”
