Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP Encourages Investors Who Suffered Losses In Excess Of $100,000 Investing In Rentech, Inc. To Contact The Firm Before Lead Plaintiff Deadline

Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities law firm, reminds investors in Rentech, Inc. (“Rentech” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ:RTK) of the April 24, 2017 deadline to seek the role of lead plaintiff in a federal securities class action lawsuit filed against the Company and certain officers.

The lawsuit has been filed in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York on behalf of all those who purchased Rentech securities between November 9, 2016 and February 20, 2017 (the “Class Period”).  The case, Las Heras v. Rentech, Inc. et al, No. 2:17-cv-00997 was filed on February 22, 2017, and has been assigned to Judge Leonard D Wexler.

The lawsuit focuses on whether the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws by making false and/or misleading statements and/or failing to disclose that: (1) the Company’s resources were not sufficient to overcome any operating challenges and remaining bottleneck at the Wawa facility; (2) subsequently, the Wawa facility would not reach approximately 60% of production capacity within the next couple quarters and achieve full capacity in the range of 400,000 to 450,000 metric tons late in the year; (3) as a result, the Company’s statements about its business, operations and prospects were materially false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable bases.

Specifically, pre-market on February 21, 2017, Rentech issued a press release announcing that it would idle its Wawa facility due to equipment and operational issues and that it is exploring strategic alternatives for both the Wawa facility and the Company.
