The Complaint that throughout the Class Period, Dakota Plains made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) Dakota Plains did not disclose that Ryan Gilbertson and Michael L. Reger, co-founders of a different Dakota Plains company, had true control of Dakota Plains' business and operations; (2) that the Company and its management caused harm to Dakota Plains investors, as it worked with Gilbertson and Reger to misappropriate Dakota Plains' assets for Gilbertson and Reger's own benefit; (3) that Dakota Plains did not have effective and adequate internal control; and (4) consequently, Dakota Plains' public statements about its business, operations and prospects were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.
On October 31, 2016, the SEC announced that it charged Ryan Gilberston, co-founder of Dakota Plains, "with manipulating [Dakota Plains'] stock price and concealing his control of the company to attain lucrative financial payouts." The SEC also stated that Michael Reger, the Company's co-founder, agreed to pay close to $8 million to settle other charges against him in connection with the manipulation of Dakota Plains' stock price.
