Enviva, formerly known as Enviva Partners, LP, develops, constructs, acquires, and owns and operates fully contracted wood pellet production plants. The Company’s products are used as a substitute for coal in power generation, and in combined heat and power plants. Significantly, Enviva touts itself as a “growth-oriented” environmental, social, and governance (“ESG”) company with a “platform to generate stable and growing cash flows.”
Plaintiff alleges that Defendants made materially false and misleading statements throughout the Class Period. Specifically, Plaintiff alleges that Defendants failed to disclose that: (i) Enviva had misrepresented the environmental sustainability of its wood pellet production and procurement; (ii) Enviva overstated the true measure of cash flow generated by the Company’s platform; and (iii) accordingly, Enviva had misrepresented its business model and the Company’s ability to achieve the level of growth that Defendants had represented to investors.
On October 12, 2022, during pre-market hours, Blue Orca Capital (“Blue Orca”) published a report on Enviva (the “Blue Orca Report”). Among other allegations, the Blue Orca Report stated that “new discovered data suggests…the company is flagrantly greenwashing its wood procurement” and characterized Enviva’s claim to be a “pure play ESG Company with a healthy, self-funded dividend and cash flows to provide a platform for future growth” as “nonsense on all counts.” The Blue Orca Report also alleged that “Enviva is a dangerously levered serial capital raiser whose deteriorating cash conversion and unprofitability will drain it of cash next year” and is “a product of deranged European climate subsidies which incentivize the destruction of American forests so that European power companies can check a bureaucratic box.”
On this news, Enviva’s stock price fell $7.74 per share, or 13.13%, to close at $51.23 per share on October 12, 2022.
