On March 24, 2022, Blue Orca Capital published a report which described Li-Cycle as a “near fatal combination of stock promotion, laughable governance, a broken business hemorrhaging cash and highly questionable Enron-like accounting.” The report also alleged, among other things, that Li-Cycle had “diverted $529,902 in investor capital to the family  of its founders through a series of highly questionable related party payments,” and that its “cash burn is so severe and far above previous guidance” which “will require the Company to raise at least $1 billion . . . in large part by massively diluting current shareholders.” The Report further stated that the Company’s largest customer, Traxys, is not actually a customer, but a “broker or marketing partner that on-sells Li-Cycle’s black mass to end buyers,” and that “not only is Traxys not the end buyer, but the revenue recognized by Li-Cycle is merely Li-Cycle’s initial estimate of the price of the product it expects to receive from the end customer once the final deal is complete.”
On this news, Li-Cycle’s stock fell $0.47, or 5.6%, to close at $7.93 per share on March 24, 2022, thereby injuring investors.
