What is this Case About: According to a complaint filed against Li-Cycle, defendants touted Li-Cycle’s patented technology and noted that the merger with Peridot Acquisition Corp. would enable Li-Cycle “to fully fund its planned global expansion.” However, defendants failed to disclose that Li-Cycle’s largest customer was merely a broker providing working capital financial to the Company while trying to sell the product to end customers. Further, Li-Cycle engaged in questionable related party transactions. With regard to accounting, the Company gave a false impression of growth, reported revenues derived by marking up receivables on unsold products, and concealed that the Company would need an additional $1 billion to support planned growth.

The truth came to light on March 24, 2022, when market researcher Blue Orca Capital released a report describing the Company as “a near fatal combination of stock promotion, laughable governance, a broker business hemorrhaging cash, and highly questionable Ernon-like accounting” and detailing the Company’s failings. On this news, Li-Cycle’s shares fell approximately 5.6%, to close at $7.93 per share on March 24, 2022.
