Camber Energy, Inc.
Camber Energy, Inc. (“Camber” or the “Company”) is an energy company that engages in the acquisition, development and sale of oil and natural gas.
In February 2021, Camber completed a business combination with Viking Energy Group, Inc. (“Viking”).
On May 24, 2021, Camber revealed that the New York Stock Exchange had notified Camber that it was not in compliance with its continued listing standards because, among other things, “issues that have arisen in connection with . . . finalizing the determination of the fair values of both assets and liabilities associated with [Camber]’s acquisition of a controlling interest in Viking.”
On this news, Camber’s stock price declined by $0.04 per share, or 9%, to close at $0.57 per share on May 25, 2021.
Then, on August 16, 2021, Viking filed its quarterly report for second quarter 2021 reporting a net loss of $9.85 million net loss and stating that its subsidiary, Elysium Energy, LLC, and other parties to a term loan agreement “are in default of the maximum leverage ratio covenant.”
On this news, the Company’s stock price fell $0.03, or 7%, to close at $0.37 per share on August 17, 2021, thereby injuring investors further.
Then, on October 5, 2021, Kerrisdale Capital released a report alleging, among other things, that the “market is badly mistaken about Camber’s share count and ignorant of [Camber’s] terrifying capital structure,” estimating the Company’s “fully diluted share count is roughly triple the widely reported number.”
On this news, Camber’s stock price fell $1.56 per share, or 50%, to close at $1.53 per share on October 5, 2021, thereby injuring investors further.
A securities class action has been filed against Camber on behalf of shareholders that purchased Camber shares between February 18, 2021 and December 28, 2021. This case has been filed in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas.
The complaint filed 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: (i) Camber overstated the financial and business prospects of Viking as well as the combined company post-Merger; (ii) Camber failed to apprise investors of, and/or downplayed, the fact that its acquisition of a controlling interest in Viking would exacerbate the Company’s delinquent financial statements and listing obligations with the NYSE; (iii) an institutional investor was diluting Camber’s shares at a significant rate following the Company’s July 12, 2021 update regarding the number of its shares of common stock issued and outstanding; and (iv) as a result, the Company’s public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.
