Renewable energies provide clean, low-carbon fuels for transportation. Renewable energies are North America’s largest producer of advanced biofuels. Biodiesel Tax Credit (“BTC”) is a federal biodiesel blend excise tax credit that gives the first person to mix pure biomass-based diesel with petroleum-based diesel a refundable tax credit of $ 1.00 per gallon.

The Renewable Energy Class Action alleges that throughout the class period, Defendants made false and / or misleading statements and / or failed to disclose that: (i) Due to flaws in the diesel additive system, petroleum diesel was not regularly added to certain loads of Renewable Energy and was added by Renewable Energy customers instead; (ii) As a result, Renewable Energy was not the correct applicant for certain BTC payments for biodiesel sold between January 1, 2017 and September 30, 2020. (iii) As a result, Renewable Energy’s revenue and net income have been overstated for certain periods of time. (iv) Renewable Energy’s internal control over financial reporting related to the purchase and use of gallons of diesel fuel when blended with biodiesel was significantly weakened; and (v) as such, Defendants’ positive statements about the business, business and prospects of Renewable Energy were materially misleading and / or unfounded.

On February 25, 2021, Renewable Energy announced that its cumulative revenue of $ 38.2 million from January 2018 to September 30, 2020 would be adjusted because Renewable Energy was not the “correct applicant for certain BTC payments for biodiesel, which were sold between January 1, 2017 and September 30, 2020. ”Renewable Energy also announced that it had reached an agreement with the Internal Revenue Service on a valuation of $ 40.5 million without interest to support these claims correct. In the news, Renewable Energy’s share price fell nearly 10% in two consecutive trading sessions, hurting investors.
