- Proterra disclosed a net loss of $81M for Q4 2022 and going concern qualification.
- $PTRA price fell over 53%, damaging investors.
- Investors suspect Proterra & its Leaders of financial misrepresentations.
On March 15, 2023, Proterra (PTRA) announced it had a net loss of $81 million and a gross loss of $20.3 million for Q4 2022.
- Proterra also disclosed it expected the audit report to be included in its Form 10-K annual report would contain a going concern qualification, which would be an event of default under Proterra’s debt agreements.
- Proterra disclosed it had obtained a limited waiver under its convertible notes for violating a minimum liquidity event.
On this news, the $PTRA price fell over 53%, damaging investors.
Going back to August 2, 2022, Proterra’s CFO Karina Franco Padilla, described Proterra’s strong financial position and stated that “we have . . . the balance sheet to . . . ride out potential economic turbulence over the next year.”
Taking all representations into account, Investors have reasons to suspect Proterra and its Leaders of misleading and failing to disclose that:
- Proterra repeatedly stated the $523 million of cash on its balance sheet meant Proterra had abundant liquidity and financial stability;
- Proterra’s new Greer, South Carolina factory would continue to improve production efficiency and gross margins.
