Philadelphia, PA based Livent Corporation manufactures and sells performance lithium compounds for energy storage, specialty polymer, and chemical synthesis applications in North America, Latin America, Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and the Asia Pacific. In October 2018, Livent Corporation completed its initial public offering ("IPO") in which it sold 23 million shares of its common stock at $17.00 per share.
On February 11, 2019, Livent Corporation released its fourth quarter 2018 financial results that missed top line sales targets, citing difficulties negotiating contracts with existing customers. Livent Corporation reported that its annual Total Revenue rose from $347.4 million in 2017 to $442.5 million in 2018 and that its Net Income increased from $42.2 million in 2017 to $126.1 million in 2018.
Then, on May 8, 2019, Livent Corporation announced disappointing financial results for first quarter 2019, citing further customer issues.
Shares of Livent Corporation (NYSE: LTHM) declined from $19.85 per share in December 2018 to as low as $7.06 per share on May 20, 2019.
The plaintiff claims that the defendants failed to disclose to investors that a supply contract with Nemaska Lithium Inc. had been terminated, that, as a result, the Company would be forced to fulfill its customer contracts using alternative vendors at reduced revenues and lower margins, that the Company had a long-standing contract to supply lithium hydroxide to a customer at a much lower price than any of the Company's existing contracts, that the Company's margins were squeezed due to the customer's increased orders, and 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.
Those who purchased shares of Livent Corporation (NYSE: LTHM) have certain options and should contact the Shareholders Foundation.
