NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–$JE #classaction–The law firm of Kirby McInerney LLP announces that a class action lawsuit has been filed in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York on behalf of those who acquired Just Energy Group, Inc. (“Just Energy” or the “Company”) (NYSE: JE) securities during the period from November 9, 2017 to July 23, 2019 (the “Class Period”). Investors have until September 30, 2019 to apply to the Court to be appointed as lead plaintiff in the lawsuit.
The lawsuit alleges that Just Energy failed to disclose that: (i) the Company had experienced customer enrollment and nonpayment issues; (ii) as a result, the Company was reasonably likely to incur an impairment charge to its accounts receivable; and (iii) as a result, the Company lacked adequate internal control over its financial reporting.
On July 23, 2019, the Company disclosed that it had “identified customer enrolment and non-payment issues, primarily in Texas, over the past 12 months” and that, as a result, it expected an impairment charge of CAD $45 to $50 million to its Texas residential accounts receivable. On this news, the price of Just Energy shares fell $0.66, or 15%, to close at $3.72 on July 23, 2019.
