The Law Offices of Frank R. Cruz reminds investors of the upcoming April 11, 2022 deadline to file a lead plaintiff motion in the class action filed on behalf of investors who acquired Astra Space, Inc. f/k/a Holicity Inc. (“Astra” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: ASTR) securities between February 2, 2021 and December 29, 2021, inclusive (the “Class Period”).
If you are a shareholder who suffered a loss, click here to participate.
On December 29, 2021, Kerrisdale Capital published a report stating that Astra’s claim of being able to launch its rockets “anywhere in the world” was “simply not true.” The report alleged that in the US, Astra could only launch from an FAA-licensed commercial spaceport approved for vertical launch, and that only five such sites exist in the country. Furthermore, the report pointed out that Astra had managed just a single successful orbital test flight, despite the Company’s forecast calling for 165 launches by 2024 and 300 launches by 2025.
On this news, Astra’s stock fell $1.10, or 14%, to close at $6.61 per share on December 29, 2021, thereby injuring investors.
The complaint alleges that defendants throughout the Class Period made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) Astra cannot launch "anywhere"; (2) Astra significantly overstated its addressable market; (3) Astra overstated the effectiveness of its designs and reliability; (4) Astra significantly overstated its plans for diversification and its broadband constellation plan; and (5) as a result of the foregoing, Defendants’ public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.
