MAXR Drops More Than 13% Upon Report of Inflated Assets
On August 7, 2018, Spruce Point Capital Management published a research report alleging that Maxar “has pulled one of the most aggressive accounting schemes Spruce Point has ever seen to inflate Non-IFRS earnings by 79%”.
Specifically, the report asserts that Maxar used its acquisition of DigitalGlobe “to inflate [its] intangible assets” and had “amended its post-retirement benefit plan to book one-time gains” in a manner that “was not fully disclosed across its investor communications”.
Following publication of the Spruce Point report, Maxar’s stock price fell more than 13% to close at $38.44 on August 7, 2018, thereby injuring investors.
