Abraham, Fruchter & Twersky, LLP Has Filed a Class Action Lawsuit against
Hi-Crush Partners LP
NEW YORK -- November 27, 2012
Abraham, Fruchter & Twersky, LLP has filed a class action lawsuit in the
United States District Court for the Southern District of New York on behalf
of all persons or entities who purchased the common stock of Hi-Crush Partners
LP (“HCLP” or the “Company”)(NYSE:HCLP) in and/or following the Company’s
initial public offering (“IPO”) completed on or about August 16, 2012. The
complaint charges HCLP, certain of its officers and directors, and the
underwriters of its IPO with violations of federal securities laws.
The complaint alleges that the Registration Statement issued in connection
with the Company’s August 16, 2012 IPO was negligently prepared and, as a
result, contained untrue statements of material facts, omitted to state other
facts necessary to make the statements made not misleading and was not
prepared in accordance with the rules and regulations governing its
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 their obligation to purchase sand from
Hi-Crush pursuant to a May 2012 contract. However, as the complaint alleges,
the Registration Statement issued in connection with the IPO was false and
misleading and/or failed to disclose the following adverse facts: (a) after
executing the original supply contract with Hi-Crush in October 2011,
beginning in February 2012, Baker Hughes began expressing an unwillingness to
comply with that contract; (b) six months prior to the IPO, Baker Hughes had
demanded significant volume and other concessions resulting in the execution
of an amended supply contract; (c) according to Baker Hughes, Hi-Crush had, or
was, violating confidentiality provisions in the supply contract; and (d) as a
result, Baker Hughes would repudiate all of its financial obligations under
the supply contract, materially decreasing Hi-Crush’s revenues and profits
attributable to that important supply contract.
On November 13, 2012, HCLP was forced to disclose that Baker Hughes had
unilaterally repudiated that supply contract, stating HCLP was in breach. In a
reaction to this news, shares of HCLP’s common stock fell $5 per share, or
25%, on extremely high trading volume of more than 3.3 million shares trading.
If you purchased the common stock of HCLP pursuant and/or traceable to the
Registration Statement issued in connection with the IPO (the “Class”) and
would like to serve as lead plaintiff in this action, you must move the Court
no later than January 21, 2013. Any member of the proposed class may move the
Court to serve as lead plaintiff through counsel of their choice, or may
choose to do nothing and remain a member of the proposed class.
