On October 31, 2018, Defendants announced a massive $7.31 per share loss on sales of barely $508 million for the third quarter ended September 30, 2018.  In contrast, investors had expected the Company to report a profit.

This news drove the price of Maxar shares down $12.16, or about 45%, to close at $14.91.

More recently, on January 7, 2019, Defendants announced that its WorldView-4 satellite lost its axis of stability, could not collect imagery, and will likely not be recoverable.

This news drove the price of Maxar shares down $5.69 during two trading days to close at $6.03 on January 8, 2019.

Effective January 13, 2019, Maxar’s CEO (Howard Lance) resigned.

“We’re focused on investors’ losses and the extent to which management’s statements about asset values and merger-related benefits may have been misleading,” said Hagens Berman partner Reed Kathrein.
