According to the Complaint, Cummins purports to be a “a global power leader”.  Cummins “designs, manufactures, distributes and services diesel, natural gas, electric and hybrid powertrains and powertrain-related components including filtration, aftertreatment, turbochargers, fuel systems, controls systems, air handling systems, automated transmissions, axles, drivelines, brakes, suspension systems, electric power generation systems, batteries, electrified power systems, electric powertrains, hydrogen production and fuel cell products.”

Throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and/or misleading statements, as well as failed to disclose material adverse facts about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects. Specifically, Defendants failed to disclose to investors that: (1) contrary to its post-April 2019 assurances about its commitment to compliance, Cummins continued to produce engines with unlawful emission defeating devices from 2019 to 2023; and (2) accordingly, Cummins understated its legal and regulatory risk, and overstated its commitment to environmental protection.

On December 22, 2023, the Company issued a press release announcing that it had reached an agreement in principle with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and other agencies to resolve civil claims regarding the Company’s emissions certification and compliance process for certain engines primarily used in pick-up truck applications in the United States (collectively, the “Agreement in Principle”).  The Agreement in Principle relates to the ongoing formal review of the Company’s emissions certification process and compliance with emissions standards for certain pickup truck applications.

On this news, the price of Cummins stock fell by $7.01 per share, or 2.87%, to close at $236.99 on December 22, 2023.
