Kessler Topaz Meltzer & Check, LLP: Investor Class Action Filed Against CannTrust Holdings Inc. for Securities Fraud Violations

Notice is hereby given that a class action lawsuit has been filed on behalf of those who purchased or otherwise acquired CannTrust Holdings Inc. (“CannTrust”) (NYSE: CTST) securities between November 14, 2018 and July 5, 2019, inclusive (the “Class Period”).
 

CannTrust investors may receive additional information about the case by clicking the link "Submit Your Information" above.


According to the complaint, CannTrust is a licensed producer and distributor of medical and recreational cannabis.

The Class Period commences on November 14, 2018, when CannTrust announced its third quarter 2018 financial results in a press release.

According to the complaint, on July 8, 2019, CannTrust disclosed that its greenhouse facility in Pelham, Ontario is non-compliant with certain regulations, and that CannTrust was growing cannabis in unlicensed rooms between October 2018 and March 2019.

The complaint alleges that, throughout the Class Period, the defendants failed to disclose to investors that: (1) CannTrust was growing cannabis in its Pelham greenhouse while applications for regulatory approval were still pending; (2) CannTrust’s Pelham greenhouse did not comply with certain regulations; (3) as a result, CannTrust was reasonably likely to face an inventory hold by Health Canada until the Pelham facility becomes compliant with applicable regulations; (4) as a result, CannTrust’s customers would face shortages and would likely seek product from CannTrust’s competitors; and (5) as a result of the foregoing, the defendants’ positive statements about CannTrust’s business, operations, and prospects were materially false and/or misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.

If you are a member of the class described above, you may no later than September 9, 2019 move the Court to serve as lead plaintiff of the class, if you so choose.


A lead plaintiff is a representative party that acts on behalf of other class members in directing the litigation. In order to be appointed lead plaintiff, the Court must determine that the class member’s claim is typical of the claims of other class members, and that the class member will adequately represent the class. Your ability to share in any recovery is not, however, affected by the decision whether or not to serve as a lead plaintiff. Returning the attached form or communicating with any counsel is not necessary to participate or share in any recovery achieved in this case.  Any member of the purported class may move the court to serve as a lead plaintiff through counsel of his/her choice, or may choose to do nothing and remain an inactive class member.
