CONTACT JAKUBOWITZ ABOUT USO:
The Lawsuit is on behalf of shareholders of United States Oil Fund, LP, who purchased shares between March 19, 2020 and April 28, 2020 and/or pursuant or otherwise traceable to the Fund's March 19, 2020 registration statement.
Lead Plaintiff Deadline: August 18, 2020
The filed complaint alleges that defendants made materially false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) unbeknownst to investors, extraordinary market conditions in early 2020 made USO's purported investment objective and strategy unfeasible; (2) as excess oil supply increased and oil prices plummeted, the facilities available for storage in Cushing approached capacity, causing a "super contango" in which the futures prices for oil substantially exceeded the spot price; (3) instead of revealing the known impacts and risks to the Fund, USO held an offering of billions of dollars of USO shares in March 2020; and (4) as a result USO suffered billions of dollars in losses and was forced to abandon its investment strategy.
Energy Recovery, Inc. (NASDAQ:ERII)
CONTACT JAKUBOWITZ ABOUT ERII:
Class Period: August 2, 2017 - June 29, 2020
Lead Plaintiff Deadline : September 21, 2020
The filed complaint alleges that defendants made materially false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (i) the Company had different strategic perspectives regarding commercialization of the Company's VorTeq technology than Schlumberger Technology Corp., which had exclusive rights to the use of VorTeq (ii) these differences created substantial risk of early termination of the Company's exclusive licensing agreement with Schlumberger; (iii) accordingly, the revenue guidance and expectations of future license revenue was false and lacked reasonable basis; and (iv) as a result, Defendants' public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times or lacked a reasonable basis and omitted material facts.
Velocity Financial, Inc. (NYSE:VEL)
CONTACT JAKUBOWITZ ABOUT VEL:
This lawsuit is on behalf of investors who purchased VEL stocks pursuant and/or traceable to the Registration Statement and Prospectus, as amended, issued in connection with Velocity's January 2020 initial public offering.
Lead Plaintiff Deadline: September 28, 2020
According to the filed complaint, defendants failed to disclose that, at the time of Velocity's initial public offering (the "IPO"), the Company's non-performing loans had dramatically increased in size from the figures provided in the Registration Statement and Prospectus that Velocity had issued in connection with the IPO. Further, defendants failed to provide any information to investors regarding the potential impact of the novel coronavirus on Velocity's business and operations, despite the fact that the international spread of the virus had already been confirmed at the time of the IPO. The failure to disclose the substantial and growing proportion of the Company's loans that were non-performing and/or on non-accrual status as of the IPO rendered the statements contained in the Registration Statement and Prospectus regarding the quality of the Company's loan portfolio and underwriting practices materially misleading.
