NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Bernstein Liebhard, a nationally acclaimed investor rights law firm, announces that a securities class action has been filed on behalf of investors that purchased or acquired the securities of Nikola Corporation (“Nikola” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: NKLA) between June 4, 2020 and September 9, 2020 (the “Class Period”). The lawsuit filed in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York alleges violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.

According to the Complaint, the Company made false and misleading statements to the market. Nikola’s founder, Trevor Milton, materially misrepresented the Company’s technology and business. The Company’s profitability and business prospects were massively overstated. Based on these facts, the Company’s public statements were false and materially misleading throughout the class period.
On September 10, 2020, Hindenburg Research issued a report titled: “Nikola: How to parlay an Ocean of Lies into a Partnership with the Largest Auto OEM in America.” In that report Hindenburg claimed that it “gathered extensive evidence–including recorded phone calls, text messages, private emails, and behind-the-scenes photographs detailing dozens of false statements by the Company’s founder Trevor Milton.”
On this news the Company’s stock price fell during intraday trading on September 10, 2020.
