On September 23, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) announced that Compass had been ordered to pay $12 million to settle charges for “misleading investors” by repeatedly assuring that a technology update at its most significant salt mine was “on track to materially reduce costs and boost its operating results starting in 2018,” when, in reality, costs at the mine were increasing, “substantially [undermining] the projected savings.” Further, the SEC also noted that Compass overstated the amount of salt it was able to produce.
On this news, Compass’s stock fell $1.58, or 4.1%, to close at $36.88 per share on September 23, 2022, thereby injuring investors.
Whistleblower Notice: Persons with non-public information regarding Compass should consider their options to aid the investigation or take advantage of the SEC Whistleblower Program. Under the program, whistleblowers who provide original information may receive rewards totaling up to 30 percent of any successful recovery made by the SEC. For more information, call Charles H. Linehan at 310-201-9150 or 888-773-9224 or email [email protected].
