Filing Date: July 10, 2019

According to the Complaint, CannTrust Holdings Inc. is purportedly a licensed producer and distributor of medical and recreational cannabis.

The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and/or misleading statements, as well as failed to disclose material adverse facts about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects. Specifically, the Complaint alleges Defendants failed to disclose to investors: (1) that the Company was growing cannabis in its Pelham greenhouse while applications for regulatory approval were still pending; (2) that the Company’s Pelham greenhouse did not comply with certain regulations; (3) that, as a result, the Company was reasonably likely to face an inventory hold by Health Canada until the Pelham facility becomes compliant with applicable regulations; (4) that, as a result, the Company’s customers would face shortages and would likely seek product from CannTrust’s competitors; and (5) that, as a result of the foregoing, Defendants’ positive statements about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects were materially misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.

On April 16, 2020, the Court issued an Order consolidating cases and appointing Lead Plaintiffs and Counsel. Lead Plaintiffs filed a consolidated Complaint on June 26.

On August 26, 2021, Lead Plaintiff filed a Motion for Preliminary Approval of eight Proposed Class Action Settlements. The Court granted preliminary approval of the Settlements on September 2. The Court granted final approval of the settlements on December 2.
