Defendant Lilium purports to be a next-generation transportation company focused on developing an electric vertical take-off-and-landing (“eVTOL”) aircraft, the Lilium Jet, for use in a new type of high-speed air transport system for people and goods.  According to the Company’s March 30, 2021 press release, the Lilium 7-Seater Jet has a projected cruise speed of 175 mph at 10,000 feet and a range of 155+ miles, including reserves.  In the same release, the Company stated that proceeds from its merger with Qell Acquisition Corp. were intended to fund the launch of commercial operations, planned for 2024.  This included the finalization of serial production facilities in Germany, launch of serial production aircraft and completion of type certification.

However, on March 14, 2022, market analyst Iceberg Research released a report regarding the Company entitled “LILIUM NV – THE LOSING HORSE IN THE EVTOL RACE” which detailed several alleged issues with the Company (the “Iceberg Report”).  Among other things, the Iceberg Report expressed doubts about Lilium’s claims that its vehicle can fly 155 miles and the report estimated the company had about 18 months before it would run out of cash.

On this news, Lilium’s stock price fell almost 34%, to close at $2.44 per share on March 14, 2022.

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 made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) Lilium materially overstated the Lilium Jet’s design and capabilities; (2) Lilium materially overstated the likelihood for the Lilium Jet’s timely certification; (3) Lilium misrepresented its ability to obtain or create the necessary batteries for the Lilium Jet; (4) the SPAC-merger would not and did not generate enough cash to commercially launch the Lilium Jet; (5) Qell Acquisition Corp. did not engage in proper due diligence regarding the Merger; and (6) as a result, Defendants’ public statements and statements to journalists were materially false and/or misleading at all relevant times.

If you wish to serve as lead plaintiff, you must move the Court no later than June 17, 2022. A lead plaintiff is a representative party acting on behalf of other class members in directing the litigation. Your ability to share in any recovery doesn’t require that you serve as lead plaintiff. If you choose to take no action, you may remain an absent class member.
