|Company Name||Ultra Petroleum Corp.|
|Class Period||April 13, 2017 to August 08, 2019|
|Lead Plaintiff Motion Deadline||November 02, 2020|
On August 9, 2019, Ultra disclosed total revenues for second quarter 2019 of $155.4 million, an 18% decline year-over-year. The Company also revealed that its vaunted horizontal well program had been effectively halted and lowered its 2019 projected capital investments to a range of $260 million to $290 million and annual production to a range of 3239 to 244 billion cubic feet equivalent.
On this news, Ultra's stock price fell 31% to close at $0.09 per share. On August 22, 2019, NASDAQ formally delisted Ultra stock.
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 that: (1) Ultra's proved reserves were materially overstated and, therefore, worth hundreds of millions of dollars less than represented; (2) Ultra's proved undeveloped reserves were of de minimis value because they contained low quality deposits that lacked a commercially viable path to development; (3) Ultra was unable to meet the production and development estimates provided to investors and such estimates lacked a reasonable basis; (4) Ultra was unable to withstand even a modest downturn in the price of natural gas because, inter alia, Ultra's business had less financial and production flexibility than claimed; (5) Ultra did not have the technical or financial capabilities or available asset base to sustainably grow its oil and natural gas production by any meaningful amount.; and (6) that, as a result of the foregoing, Defendants’ positive statements about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects were materially misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.
