LI-CYCLE ALERT: Bragar Eagel & Squire, P.C. Reminds Investors that a Class Action Lawsuit Has Been Filed Against Li-Cycle, Corp. and Encourages Investors to Contact the Firm

NEW YORK, Nov. 19, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Bragar Eagel & Squire, P.C., a nationally recognized stockholder rights law firm, reminds investors that a class action lawsuit has been filed against Li-Cycle, Corp. (“Li-Cycle” or the “Company”) (NYSE: LICY) in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York on behalf of all persons and entities who purchased or otherwise acquired Li-Cycle securities between June 14, 2022 and October 23, 2023, both dates inclusive (the “Class Period”). Investors have until January 8, 2024 to apply to the Court to be appointed as lead plaintiff in the lawsuit.

On October 23, 2023, before the market opened, Li-Cycle announced that it would halt construction work on its Rochester Hub project pending a comprehensive review of the project including construction strategy, even though engineering and procurement for the project are largely complete. The Company disclosed it had recently experienced escalating construction costs and now expects the aggregate cost for the current scope of the project to exceed its previously disclosed guidance. On this news, Li-Cycle shares declined by $1.04, or approximately 45.81%, to close at $1.23 per share on October 23, 2023, on unusually heavy trading volume. 

The complaint filed in this class action alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and/or misleading statements, as well as failed to disclose material adverse facts about the Companys business, operations, and prospects. Specifically, Defendants failed to disclose to investors: (1) that the Companys Rochester Hub was experiencing escalating construction costs; (2) that these escalating construction costs exceeded the expected aggregate cost of the project; (3) that, as a result, the Company would be forced to temporarily halt construction and reevaluate the construction strategy for the Rochester Hub; and (4) that, as a result of the foregoing, Defendants positive statements about the Companys business, operations, and prospects were materially misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.
