TWERSKY LAW GROUP Notifies Lordstown Motors Corp. (RIDEQ) Investors of Class Action

Twersky Law Group, a highly regarded and reputable law firm based in New York, wishes to inform investors about a significant development in the form of a class action lawsuit against Lordstown Motors Corp.  (“Lordstown” or “the Company”) (NASDAQ: RIDEQ) and certain officers of the company. This lawsuit has been filed on behalf of all individuals and entities that held, purchased, or otherwise acquired Sea securities from August 4, 2022 through June 26, 2023 (the “Class Period”). Investors who acquired Lordstown securities during this defined timeframe are strongly encouraged to participate in this case by contacting atara@twerskylawgroup.com. The deadline to file a motion for appointment of lead plaintiff is September 25, 2023.

The fundamental objective of this class action lawsuit is to recover for the benefit of investors who purchased Lordstown securities during the Class Period, the losses they sustained as a consequence of the misleading statements made by Defendants in violation of the federal securities laws.

 

ALLEGATIONS AGAINST LORDSTOWN MOTORS CORP.

The lawsuit alleges that, throughout the Class Period, Lordstown represented publicly that it had been working collaboratively with Hon Hai Technology Group (Foxconn) in the context of the companies joint venture. However, on June 27, 2023, Lordstown revealed in a court filing that, contrary to Lordstowns Class Period representations, the Companys vital partnership with Foxconn had long been in jeopardy and Foxconns conduct toward Lordstown had been anything but collaborative. Lordstown filed litigation against Foxconn and several of its subsidiaries in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware alleging Foxconns fraud, bad faith, and failure to live up to its commercial and financial commitments to the Company. On this news, the Companys stock price fell $0.54 per share, over 21%, to close at $2.29 per share on June 27, 2023. The complaint filed in this class action alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants repeatedly made and/or caused Lordstown to make false and/or misleading statements about Lordstowns relationship with Foxconn suggesting, or in some instances, representing that Foxconn was working cooperatively with Lordstown when in fact, the partnership had stalled soon after the execution of a joint venture agreement and quickly soured.
