According to the complaint, Defendants misrepresented and concealed that CannTrust was growing cannabis in its Pelham, Ontario greenhouse facility in five unlicensed rooms between October and March 2018, and that the Company was providing inaccurate information to Canadian regulator (Health Canada).
On July 8, 2019, the market began to learn the truth when Defendants disclosed that Health Canada found that the Pelham greenhouse facility was non-compliant with certain regulations. As a result, Health Canada placed a hold on 5,200 kilograms of dried cannabis harvested from the unlicensed rooms and on an additional 7,500 kilograms voluntarily held by the Company.
Most recently, on July 11, 2019, Defendants announced CannTrust (1) suspended sales and shipments of all of its cannabis products and (2) established a special committee to investigate the matter in its entirety.
“We’re focused on investors’ losses and whether Defendants misrepresented and concealed CannTrust’s compliance with applicable laws and regulations,” said Hagens Berman partner Reed Kathrein.
