Loop Stock Plummets 32% After Scathing Report by Hindenburg Research

Hindenburg Research released a report alleging that Loop Industries, Inc. has misled investors and major corporate partners about its ability to recycle a clear lightweight form of plastic called PET, commonly found in drink bottles and other food and beverage packaging.

The report alleges that Loop’s lead scientists are a father and two sons with no formal chemistry education who operate in a second, secret lab that is off-limits to rank and file workers. According to the report, former scientists at Loop say they were never allowed to see the lead scientists’ methods and were pressured to lie about their own results. While Loop claimed in a June 2016 report that it could break PET down into its base chemicals at a recovery rate of 100%, a former employee quoted in the Hindenburg report insists that by October 2016, the company couldn’t even repeatably achieve a recovery rate above 90%.

On this news, Loop’s stocks dropped 32% by close of trading on Tuesday October 13, 2020, causing significant harm to investors.
