SAN FRANCISCO, July 13, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Hagens Berman urges Generac Holdings Inc. GNRC investors who suffered significant losses to submit your losses now.
Generac Holdings Inc. GNRC Investigation:
The investigation focuses on Generac’s claims that its acquisitions (including its 80% interest in Pramac and acquisition of Off Grid Energy) support the company’s “Powering A Smarter World” strategic plan and on the role played by Generac’s heavily touted strategic distribution partnership with Sunnova.
The company’s claims came into question on June 22, 2022, when analyst Spruce Point Capital Management published an investment report alleging that Generac is struggling “to suppress core business challenges, while pivoting towards a highly speculative and unproven acquisition spree in clean energy products and services.”
Among other things, Spruce Point: (1) accused Generac of engaging in a pattern of misreporting acquisition revenue contribution between 2019 – 2021; (2) questioned Pramac’s ballooning receivables, calling it “a hallmark of channel stuffing”; (3) observed Generac’s press release announcing the Off Grid Energy acquisition obscured the fact that its 80% Pramac business was the end acquiror and found “evidence to suggest a sham revenue transaction at Off Grid Energy”; and, (4) highlighted Spruce Point’s concerns that Generac’s distribution partnership with Sunnova may have been structured to enable Generac to round-trip cash flows.
In response to Spruce Point’s report, the price of Generac shares sharply declined during intraday trading on June 22, 2022.
“We’re focused on investors’ losses and whether Generac may have improperly recognized unearned revenues,” said Reed Kathrein, the Hagens Berman partner leading the investigation.
