Michael has over 20 years of experience representing individual and small business plaintiffs against the world’s large financial institutions, including Visa, Mastercard, and Chase.
Our attorneys are investigating a possible CannTrust class action lawsuit. CannTrust shares fell over 22% after a Canadian healthcare regulator seized nearly 13 metric tons of its inventory. According to regulators, CannTrust, a marijuana growing company, grew the cannabis in an unlicensed manner, resulting in a hold on inventory that will lead to temporary product shortages. Many investors are upset with the company’s actions.
CannTrust Holdings Shares Plummet almost 20%; Canadian Regulators Seize Inventory
On July 8, 2019, Canadian Regulators found that CannTrust Holdings was growing cannabis in five unlicensed rooms. According to CannTrust Holdings
Health Canada has placed a hold on inventory which includes approximately 5,200 kg of dried cannabis that was harvested in the previously unlicensed rooms in Pelham, until it deems that the company is compliant with regulations.
The company has warned customers that they may experience a temporary product shortage. CannTrust employees have also been accused of providing false information to Canadian regulators. On this news, share prices fell 19%.
According to Jefferies analyst Ryan Tomkins
The fact the company never spotted this, or indeed still doesn’t know how it happened, is a concern… For us, this will make institutional investors think twice, and could also likely make it harder for CannTrust to attract high quality FMCG partnerships.
