Innovative Industrial Properties, Inc.
|Company Name||Innovative Industrial Properties, Inc.|
|Class Period||May 07, 2020 to April 13, 2022|
|Lead Plaintiff Motion Deadline||June 24, 2022|
On April 14, 2022, before market hours, Blue Orca Capital released a report alleging, among other things, that Innovative Industrial Properties is “a marijuana bank masquerading as a [real estate investment trust (“REIT”)],” and that the Company’s model is “to conduct sale-leaseback transactions with cannabis producers who are otherwise prohibited from borrowing money because of federal regulations.”
On this news, the Company’s stock fell $13.76, or 7.5%, to close at $169.68 per share on April 14, 2022, thereby injuring investors.
The complaint filed in this class action alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and/or misleading statements, as well as failed to disclose material adverse facts about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects. Specifically, Defendants failed to disclose to investors: (1) that the Company’s focus is to be a cannabis company lender rather than a real estate investment trust; (2) that the true values of the Company’s properties are significantly lower than Innovative Industrial Properties represents; (3) existential issues in its top customers; (4) that as a result, its top customers may not be able to continue making payments to the Company, which would face significant issues replacing these customers; and (5) as a result, Defendants’ positive statements about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects were materially misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis at all relevant times.
