Investor Alert: Kaplan Fox Investigates Potential Securities Fraud at CleanSpark, Inc.
NEW YORK, Feb. 19, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Kaplan Fox & Kilsheimer LLP (www.kaplanfox.com) is investigating claims on behalf of investors of CleanSpark, Inc. (“CleanSpark” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: CLSK). A complaint has been filed on behalf of investors who purchased CleanSpark securities between December 31, 2020 and January 14, 2021 (the “Class Period”).
On January 14, 2021, Culper Research published a report entitled "Cleanspark (CLSK): Back to the Trash Can." According to the Culper Research report, “CleanSpark’s promotional charade has spanned marijuana, clean energy, “SaaS”, electric vehicles, and, most recently, bitcoin.”
According to the complaint, the Culper Research report claims that CleanSpark has "fabricated key elements of its business, including purported customers and contracts" and that the Company is also "rife with undisclosed related party transactions." For example, the Culper Research report alleges the entire February 2020 acquisition of p2k Labs, Inc. is “another undisclosed related party transaction, as CleanSpark’s CFO Lori Love is found on p2k’s corporate documents since at least November 2018, well before joining CleanSpark and the p2k acquisition.” Further, the report alleges that “[i]n effect, CleanSpark appears to have purchased the side business of its CFO, with zero relevance to the Company’s supposed clean energy mission.”
Following this news, CleanSpark's stock price fell $3.63 per share, or 9.23%, to close at $35.71 per share on January 14, 2021.
