Neptune is a Quebec, Canada-based biotechnology company that develops and commercializes krill oil products extracted from Antarctica krill for the nutraceutical, pharmaceutical, cosmetic, and pet food markets. The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, defendants made materially false and misleading statements, and omitted materially adverse facts, about the Company’s business, operations and prospects. Specifically, the Complaint alleges that the Defendants misled investors about the Company’s future prospects by, among other things, failing to disclose that it had adopted an aggressive policy of volume discount to secure market share; and failing to disclose that the Company had not obtained necessary permits for the massive expansion project undertaken at the Company’s production plant in Sherbrooke – the Company’s sole production facility which housed all of its inventory. As a result of defendants’ false and misleading statements, the Company’s stock traded at artificially inflated prices during the Class Period.
