NEW YORK, May 30, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Attorney Advertising -- Bronstein, Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC notifies investors that a class action lawsuit has been filed against Bloom Energy Corporation (“Bloom” or the “Company”) (NYSE: BE) and certain of its officers, on behalf of shareholders who purchased or otherwise acquired Bloom securities pursuant or traceable to the Form S-1 Registration Statement and Prospectus (collectively, the “Registration Statement”) issued in connection with Bloom Energy’s July 2018 initial public stock offering (the “IPO” or “Offering”). Such investors are encouraged to join this case by visiting the firm’s site: .
This class action seeks to recover damages against Defendants for alleged violations of the federal securities laws under the Securities Exchange Act of 1933.
In July 2018, Bloom commenced the IPO, issuing approximately 18 million shares of its common stock to the investing public at $15.00 per share, all pursuant to the Registration Statement.
The complaint alleges that the Registration Statement was materially misleading as it failed to disclose known events and trends that were severely affecting the Company’s business and that made investment in Bloom significantly riskier than presented in the Registration Statement. Specifically, the complaint alleges that the Registration Statement failed to disclose that the Company was experiencing material construction delays. These construction delays would cause system deployments (or “acceptances” as Defendants referred to them) to fall significantly below even the low end of the Company’s previously announced guidance.
While the Registration Statement purported to warn of risks that arise,” which could materially affect the Company, in actuality these material negative events were already occurring. As a result, the representations and purported risk disclosures were allegedly false and misleading because, by the time of the IPO, construction delays had already impacted or would soon impact Bloom’s ability to deliver acceptances in line with its guidance.
On Monday, November 5, 2018, Bloom shocked the market when it announced its disappointing acceptances for the third quarter of fiscal year 2018 results and provided acceptance guidance for the fourth quarter significantly below analysts’ expectations. In particular, the Company reported that it only achieved 206 acceptances, materially below its guidance number of 215 to 235 acceptances. In addition, the Company announced guidance for the fourth quarter of acceptances between 225 and 275. In contrast, analysts at JP Morgan had estimated 333 acceptances in the fourth quarter.
The price of Bloom stock fell precipitously, closing as low as $9.21 per share, almost 40% below the IPO price and remains below the IPO price to this date.
