FirstEnergy Corp. (NYSE:FE)
Investors Affected: February 21, 2017 - July 21, 2020
A class action has commenced on behalf of certain shareholders in FirstEnergy Corp. The filed complaint alleges that defendants made materially false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) the legislative "solutions" that defendants claimed would resolve problems with the Company's nuclear facilities were centered on an illicit campaign to corrupt high-profile state legislators and thus secure legislation favoring the FirstEnergy; (2) over roughly three years, FirstEnergy and its affiliates funneled more than $60 million to prominent state politicians and lobbyists, including Ohio Speaker Larry Householder, in order to secure the passage of Ohio House Bill 6, which provided a $1.3 billion ratepayer-funded bailout to keep the Company's failing nuclear facilities in operation; (3) defendants falsely represented that they were complying with state and federal laws and regulations regarding regulatory matters throughout the Class Period, exposing the Company and its investors to the extreme risks of reputational, legal, and financial harm; (4) as a result of defendants' false statements and omissions, FirstEnergy insiders were able to sell more than $17 million worth of their FirstEnergy shares at artificially inflated prices.

Ultra Petroleum Corp. (OTC PINK:UPLCQ)
Investors Affected: April 3, 2017 - August 8, 2019
A class action has commenced on behalf of certain shareholders in Ultra Petroleum Corp. The filed complaint alleges that defendants made materially false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (a) Ultra's proved reserves were materially overstated and, therefore, worth hundreds of millions of dollars less than represented; (b) Ultra's proved undeveloped reserves were of de minimis value because they contained low-quality deposits that lacked a commercially viable path to development; (c) Ultra was unable to meet the production and development estimates provided to investors and such estimates lacked a reasonable basis; (d) Ultra was unable to withstand even a modest downturn in the price of natural gas because, inter alia, Ultra's business had less financial and production flexibility than claimed; and (e) Ultra did not have the technical or financial capabilities or available asset base to sustainably grow its oil and natural gas production by any meaningful amount.
