According to the law firm press release, the lawsuit alleges throughout the Class Period defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) Rentech’s resources were not sufficient to overcome any operating challenges and remaining bottleneck at the Wawa facility; (2) consequently, the Wawa facility would not reach approximately 60% of production capacity within the next couple quarters and achieve full capacity in the range of 400,000 to 450,000 metric tons late in the year; (3) as a result, defendants’ statements about Rentech’s business, operations and prospects were materially false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable bases at all relevant times. On February 21, 2017, Rentech announced its decision to idle the Wawa facility due to equipment and operational issues that would require additional unbudgeted capital investment. On this news, shares of Rentech fell $1.31 per share or over 47% from its previous closing price to close at $1.44 per share on February 21, 2017, damaging investors.

About the Company & Securities Data

"Company" information provides the industry and sector classification and headquarters state for the primary company-defendant in the litigation. In general, "Securities" information provides the ticker symbol, market, and market status for the underlying securities at issue in the litigation.

In most cases, the primary company-defendant actually issued the securities that are the subject of the litigation, and the securities information and company information relate to the same entity. In a small subset of cases, however, the primary company-defendant is not the issuer (for example, cases against third party brokers/dealers), and the securities information and company information do not relate to the same entity.
