BENSALEM, Pa.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–$BAK #classaction–Law Offices of Howard G. Smith announces an investigation on behalf of Braskem S.A. (“Braskem” or the “Company”) (NYSE: BAK) investors concerning the Company’s possible violations of federal securities laws.

On April 2, 2019, media reported that Braskem was sued by local authorities in connection with a geological event that the Company had purportedly caused in Alagoas, Brazil. The same day, the Company disclosed that the lawsuits were “requesting the freezing of amounts and assets in a total of approximately R$6.7 billion to guarantee any potential damages owed to the general public.”

On this news, the Company’s share price fell $1.60, or 6%, over two trading sessions to close at $25.14 per share on April 3, 2020.

Then, on July 9, 2020, before the market opened, Braskem disclosed that the geological damage from its salt mining operations was more widespread than initial estimates. Specifically, the Company disclosed that 1,918 properties needed to be evacuated, which would cost Braskem R$850 million in possible payments to those residents and R$750 million in expenses to “definitively” shut down Braskem’s salt mining operations.

On this news, the Company’s share price fell $0.59, or 6%, to close at $8.93 per share on July 9, 2020, thereby damaging investors.

If you purchased Braskem securities, have information or would like to learn more about these claims, or have any questions concerning this announcement or your rights or interests with respect to these matters, please contact Howard G. Smith, Esquire, of Law Offices of Howard G. Smith, 3070 Bristol Pike, Suite 112, Bensalem, Pennsylvania 19020 by telephone at (215) 638-4847, toll-free at (888) 638-4847, or by email to [email protected], or visit our website at www.howardsmithlaw.com.
