On June 29, 2018, the Company filed its registration statement on Form Sl for the IPO, which, following an amendment, was declared effective by the SEC on July 25, 2018 (the “Registration Statement”). On or about July 26, 2018, Berry went public, which saw the company begin trading on the NASDAQ Global Select market (“NASDAQ”). It issued 13 million shares of Berry common stock at a price of $ 14 per share for over $ 138 million in proceeds before costs. On July 27, 2018, Berry filed his prospectus with the SEC on Form 424B4 (the “Prospectus” and, along with the registration statement, the “Offer Documents”).
On November 3, 2020, Berry reported its financial and operating results for the third quarter of 2020. Berry reported non-GAAP EPS and revenue, both of which were below estimates. Additionally, Berry reported that the company made “some operational improvements during the quarter that resulted in temporary production declines. In particular, we did some plugging and demolition activities that resulted in the temporary shutdown of nearby wells. In addition, improved steam management reduced overall costs, but temporarily increased the need for water disposal and well maintenance, resulting in a slight decrease in production. ”
In that news, the company’s share price fell $ 0.15 per share, or 5.28%, to close at $ 2.69 per share on November 4, 2020, an 80.78% decrease from the IPO price.
The complaint filed on November 20, 2020 alleges that the offer documents were created negligently and, as a result, contained false statements about material facts, omitted material facts that were necessary in order not to mislead the statements contained therein and did not require information necessary for their creation according to the rules and regulations. Additionally, throughout the classroom, defendants made materially false and misleading statements about the company’s business, operational, and compliance policies. In particular, the Offer Documents and Defendants made false and / or misleading statements and / or did not disclose that: (i) Berry had materially overestimated its operational efficiency and stability; (ii) Berry’s operational inefficiency and instability would predictably require operational improvements that would disrupt business productivity and increase costs; (iii) the foregoing would have a predictable negative impact on the company’s income; and (iv) as a result, the Company’s offer documents and public statements were materially false and / or misleading and did not contain any information to be disclosed therein.
