Public Company Equity Price Crisis
In early 2015 we were engaged by a UK based associate to assist in investigating a series of private investment research reports that caused the market cap of the Clients publically traded securities to drop by more than 40% in little more than a month. During the course of the engagement we traced the identity of the individuals behind the research firms, researched the global short positions in the securities and were able to tie, thus far, one of the research firms to a hedge fund with a significant short position in the Clients securities. This matter is ongoing with the intention of assessing the possibilities of future litigation.
