Filing Date: May 28, 2019
According to the Complaint, Bloom Energy designs, manufactures, and sells solid-oxide fuel cell systems for on-site power generation. The fuel cell systems, or Energy Servers, convert fuel into electricity without combustion, providing efficient energy generation with reduced operating costs and lower greenhouse gas emissions.
In July 2018, Bloom Energy commenced the initial public stock offering, 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 Energy significantly riskier than presented in the Registration Statement. In particular, the Complaint alleges the Registration Statement failed to disclose that the Company was experiencing material construction delays. These construction delays would cause system deployments to fall significantly below even the low end of the Company’s previously announced guidance.
On September 3, 2019, the Court issued an Order appointing Lead Plaintiff and Counsel. Lead Plaintiff filed an amended Complaint on November 4. On April 21, Lead Plaintiff filed a second amended Complaint.

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.
