Meta Materials Inc. (MMAT) Misled Investors Regarding its Business Prospects

According to the complaint, before the business combination with Metamaterial Inc., which closed on June 28, 2021, the Company was known as Torchlight Energy Resources, Inc. The Company touted the business combination, as well as Metamaterial’s proprietary advanced technologies, agreements, commercialization, products, and production. However, as would later be revealed, defendants failed to disclose that the Company had materially overstated its business connections and dealings, had misstated its products’ novelty and capabilities, and priced its products too high.

On November 15, 2021, Meta Materials filed with the SEC its quarterly report for the period ended September 30, 2021, announcing that in September 2021, it had received a subpoena from the SEC requesting the Company to produce certain documents and information related to, among other things, the merger involving Torchlight Energy and Metamaterial Inc. On this news, Meta Materials’ shares fell almost 4%, to close at $4.77 per share on November 16, 2021, damaging investors.

Then, on December 14, 2021, market researcher Kerrisdale Capital released a report alleging that, among other things, “Meta has habitually made outlandish and misleading claims about the feasibility, development, and commercial potential of various technologies only to repeatedly move the goalposts or retrospectively alter its claims, often just quietly dropping entire projects they had previously touted as pivotal.” On this news, Meta Materials’ shares fell 5.8%, to close at $2.91 per share on December 14, 2021.
