The complaint alleges that during the class period, defendants issued
materially false and misleading statements regarding the Company's business
practices and financial results. Specifically, the complaint alleges that: (a)
cash flows the Company was using to pay a dividend payout were being funded by
revenues derived from companies Atlantic Power was spending millions of
dollars to acquire; (b) Atlantic Power's losses from operations were mounting,
jeopardizing the Company's ability to maintain the outsized dividend payment;
and (c) defendants knew that many of the Company's project contracts were
scheduled to expire over the course of 2013, meaning cash flows from those
projects would be substantially lower after those contracts ended, and
unbeknownst to investors, Atlantic Power was not replacing those
contracts–further jeopardizing its ability to maintain the outsized dividend
payment that was supporting its stock price. As a result of defendants'
materially false and misleading statements, Atlantic Power common stock traded
at artificially inflated prices throughout the class period.
