According to the Complaint, the Company made false and misleading statements to the market. Compass is the subject of an SEC announcement issued on September 23, 2022, which stated that the Company was ordered to pay $12 million to settle charges related to "misleading investors about a technology upgrade that the company claimed would reduce costs at its most significant mine, but in reality, had increased costs, and for failing to properly assess whether to disclose the financial risks created by the company's excessive discharge of mercury in Brazil." According to the SEC, "Compass repeatedly assured investors in 2017 that a technology upgrade at its Goderich mine - the world's largest underground salt mine which is located near Ontario, Canada and hailed by the company as its crown jewel - was on track to materially reduce costs and boost its operating results starting in 2018," but that the Company's statements "were misleading because they failed to tell investors that costs at the mine were increasing rather than decreasing, which substantially undermined the projected savings." Based on these facts, the Company's public statements were false and materially misleading throughout the class period. When the market learned the truth about Compass, investors suffered damages.
