Specifically, the complaint alleges that defendants misrepresented and/or failed to disclose that, among other things: (a) the Company was polluting the environment and exposing almost 110,000 residents near its Vernon, California battery recycling facility with potentially fatal levels of arsenic and other pollutants; (b) the Company knew that it would not be able to meet its debt repayment obligations and other pledges and promises based on actual and projected revenues and expenses; and (c) the Company knew that its environmental liabilities, debt obligations and potential insolvency did not support Exide’s statements to investors. According to this complaint, when these facts were finally revealed to the market, Exide’s shares plummeted by approximately 46%. “The allegedly improper business practices conducted by Exide have prompted our firms to investigate additional claims against the Company’s officers and directors, including potential breaches of fiduciary duties and other violations of state law. Based on our investigation, we are prepared to pursue litigation to preserve the company and the value of Exide stock for all shareholders,” said shareholder rights attorney Patrick Powers.
