HAGENS BERMAN, NATIONAL TRIAL ATTORNEYS, Encourages Danimer Scientific (DNMR) Investors with ...
SAN FRANCISCO, June 01, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hagens Berman urges Danimer Scientific, Inc. (NYSE: DNMR) investors with significant losses to submit your losses now.
Danimer Scientific, Inc. (NYSE: DNMR) Securities Fraud Action:
The complaint alleges that Danimer made misrepresentations and omissions concerning its production of polyhydroxyalkanoate (“PHA”) – a biodegradeable alternative to petrochemical-based plastics, which the company sells under its proprietary Nodax brand.
The truth began to emerge on Mar. 20, 2021, when the Wall Street Journal reported that “many claims about Nodax are exaggerated and misleading.” One quoted plastics expert labeled Danimer’s claims about Nodax’s biodegradability as “not accurate” and as “greenwashing.”
Next, on Apr. 22, 2021, analyst Spruce Point published a scathing report noting: red flags; inconsistencies in Danimer’s claims about the size of its operations and Nodax’s makeup and degradability; and the company’s expected profitability.
Then, on May 4, 2021, Spruce Point published another report after acquiring documents from Kentucky’s Department of Environmental Protection and accused Danimer of “wildly overstating” production figures, pricing, and financial projections.
Most recently, on May 21, 2021, news outlets reported that the Kentucky Department of Financial Institutions had opened a formal inquiry into Danimer and Spruce Point’s claims.
“We’re focused on investors’ losses and proving Danimer misled investors by greenwashing and misstating its true performance metrics,” said Reed Kathrein, the Hagens Berman partner leading the investigation.
