Gainey & McKenna Announces a Securities Fraud Class Action Lawsuit Has Been
Filed Against Hi-Crush Partners LP -- HCLP
NEW YORK, Nov. 26, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Gainey & McKenna announces that a
class action lawsuit has been filed in the United States District Court for
the Southern District of New York, on behalf of investors who purchased the
shares of Hi-Crush Partners LP ("Hi-Crush" or the "Company") (NYSE:HCLP) in
and/or following the Company's initial public offering completed on or about
August 16, 2012 (the "IPO"). The Complaint charges Hi-Crush, certain of its
officers and directors and the underwriters of its IPO with violations of the
Securities Act of 1933.
The Complaint alleges that Hi-Crush's Registration Statement issued in
connection with its August 16, 2012 IPO was negligently prepared and, as a
result, contained untrue statements of material facts.Specifically, the
Complaint alleges that the Registration Statement highlighted Baker Hughes
Incorporated ("Baker Hughes") as one of Hi-Crush's two largest customers and
emphasized that it was obligated to purchase from Hi-Crush pursuant to a May
2012 "take-or-pay contract" that "require[d]" Baker Hughes "to pay a specified
price for a specified volume of frac sand each month."However, on November
13, 2012, Hi-Crush was forced to disclose that Baker Hughes had unilaterally
repudiated that supply contract, stating Hi-Crush was in breach. On this
disclosure, Hi-Crush's stock price fell $5 per share, or 25%, on extremely
high trading volume of more than 3.3 million shares trading.
