Pomerantz Law Firm Announces the Filing of a Class Action Against Standard Lithium Ltd. and Certain Officers – SLI

PR Newswire

NEW YORK, Jan. 27, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Pomerantz LLP announces that a class action lawsuit has been filed against Standard Lithium Ltd. (“Standard Lithium” or the “Company”) (NYSE: SLI) and certain of its officers.   The class action, filed in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York, and indexed under 22-cv-00507, is on behalf of a class consisting of all persons and entities other than Defendants that purchased or otherwise acquired Standard Lithium securities between May 19, 2020 and November 17, 2021, both dates inclusive (the “Class Period”), seeking to recover damages caused by Defendants’ violations of the federal securities laws and to pursue remedies under Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”) and Rule 10b-5 promulgated thereunder, against the Company and certain of its top officials.

If you are a shareholder who purchased or otherwise acquired Standard Lithium securities during the Class Period, you have until March 28, 2022 to ask the Court to appoint you as Lead Plaintiff for the class.  A copy of the Complaint can be obtained at www.pomerantzlaw.com.   To discuss this action, contact Robert S.

Standard Lithium explores for, develops, and processes lithium brine properties in the U.S.  The Company’s flagship project is the Lanxess project with approximately 150,000 acres of brine leases located in south-western Arkansas.

On May 19, 2020, Standard Lithium announced the successful start-up of the Company’s industrial-scale Direct Lithium Extraction Demonstration Plant at Lanxess’s South Plant facility in southern Arkansas (the “Demonstration Plant”), a purportedly “first-of-its-kind plant” using Standard Lithium’s proprietary LiSTR Direct Lithium Extraction (“LiSTR”) technology.  According to the Company, one of the key features of the LiSTR technology was that it increased lithium recovery efficiencies to more than 90%.

The complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and misleading statements regarding the Company’s business, operations, and compliance policies.  Specifically, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (i) the LiSTR technology’s extraction recovery efficiencies were overstated; (ii) accordingly, the Company’s final product lithium recovery percentage at the Demonstration Plant would not be as high as the Company had represented to investors; and (iii) as a result, the Company’s public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.

On November 18, 2021, Blue Orca Capital published a short report (the “Blue Orca Report” or the “Report”) alleging that Standard Lithium’s claims of achieving of 90% extraction rates of battery grade lithium at its Arkansas demonstration site are not supported by previously undisclosed data filed by the Company with the state regulator, which indicated significantly lower recovery rates. 

Following publication of the Blue Orca Report, Standard Lithium’s common share price fell $1.86 per share, or 18.84%, to close at $8.01 per share on November 18, 2021.
