Affected shareholders purchased shares of TMC between March 4, 2021 and October 5, 2021
Shareholders interested in representing the class of wronged shareholders have until December 27, 2021 to petition the court. Your ability to share in any recovery doesn't require that you serve as a lead plaintiff.
According to a filed complaint, TMC the metals company Inc. f/k/a Sustainable Opportunities Acquisition Corp. issued materially false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) the Company had significantly overpaid for the Tongo Offshore Mining Limited acquisition to undisclosed insiders; (2) the Company had artificially inflated its Nauru Ocean Resources Inc. ("NORI") exploration expenditures to give investors a false scale of its operations; (3) the Company's purported 100% interest in NORI was questionable given prior disclosures to the International Seabed Authority that NORI was wholly owned by two Nauruan foundations and that all future income from NORI would be used in Nauru; (4) Defendants had significantly downplayed the environmental risks of deep-sea mining polymetallic nodules and failed to adequately warn investors of the regulatory risks faced by the Company's environmentally risky exploitation plans; (5) the Company's PIPE financing was not fully committed and, therefore, the Company would not have the cash necessary for large sale commercial production; (6) as a result of the foregoing, the Company's valuation was significantly less than Defendants disclosed to investors; and (7) as a result, Defendants' public statements were materially false and/or misleading at all relevant times.
Jakubowitz Law is vigorous in pursuit of justice for shareholders who have been the victim of securities fraud. Attorney advertising. Prior results do not guarantee similar outcomes.
