NEW YORK, Aug. 13, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Pomerantz LLP is investigating claims on behalf of investors of Maxar Technologies Ltd. ("Maxar" or the "Company") (NYSE: MAXR). Such investors are advised to contact Robert S. Willoughby at [email protected] or 888-476-6529, ext. 9980.
The investigation concerns whether Maxar and certain of its officers and/or directors have engaged in securities fraud or other unlawful business practices.
On August 7, 2018, Spruce Point Capital Management ("Spruce Point") published a research report on Maxar. The Spruce Point report alleged, in part, that Maxar "has pulled one of the most aggressive accounting schemes Spruce Point has ever seen to inflate Non-IFRS earnings by 79%". Specifically, the report asserted that Maxar had used its acquisition of DigitalGlobe "to inflate [its] intangible assets" and had "amended its post-retirement benefit plan to book one-time gains" in a manner that "was not fully disclosed across its investor communications". Following publication of the Spruce Point report, Maxar's stock price fell sharply during intraday trading on August 7, 2018.
