Energy Recovery, Inc. (ERII)
ERII Class Action & Lead Plaintiff Deadline: September 21, 2020
Bronstein, Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC is investigating potential claims on behalf of purchasers of Energy Recovery, Inc. ("Energy Recovery” or "the Company") (NASDAQ: ERII). The investigation concerns whether Energy Recovery and certain of its officers and/or directors have violated federal securities laws.
On June 29, 2020, Energy Recovery announced that it had entered into an agreement to “exit its 15-year licensing deal for Schlumberger's exclusive use of Energy Recovery’s VorTeq hydraulic pumping system,” that “no further payments will be made by either party,” and that “Energy Recovery will now be fully responsible for commercialization of the VorTeq technology globally.” Robert Mao, the Company’s Chairman of the Board of Directors, President, and Chief Executive Officer, cited “different strategic perspectives as to the path to VorTeq commercialization” as the rationale behind the decision. Then, on June 30, 2020, in response to the Company’s announcement the day before, an analyst at B. Riley FBR downgraded Energy Recovery from Buy to Neutral, stating that the Company had lost the technology that is key to its ongoing effort to advance VorTeq to commercialization, and stating that Energy Transfer “should have been able to perceive in advance and then explicitly warn about the significant, and likely rising, odds of this outcome.” Following the Company’s announcement and subsequent downgrade, its stock price fell $1.31 per share, or 14.7%, to close at $7.60 per share on June 30, 2020.
