Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities law firm, reminds investors in Kraton Corporation (“Kraton” or the “Company”) (NYSE:KRA) of the April 27, 2018 deadline to seek the role of lead plaintiff in a federal securities class action that has been filed against the Company.

The lawsuit has been filed in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas on behalf of all those who purchased Kraton securities between October 25, 2017 and February 21, 2018 (the “Class Period”).  The case, Hrasok v. Kraton Corporation et al., No. 4:18-cv-00591 was filed on February 26, 2018.

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 was transitioning customers to Brazilian-produced Cariflex, a polyisoprene product, even though certain customers had already rejected that product; (2) the Company’s Brazilian-produced Cariflex was available to customers when in fact certain customers had already rejected that product; (3) the Company lacked effective internal controls over financial reporting; and (4) as a result, the Company’s statements about its business, operations and prospects were materially false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.

Specifically, on February 21, 2018, Kraton filed its Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2017 with the Securities and Exchange Commission.  Therein, the Company disclosed, in part, that certain customers had issues with its Brazilian produced Cariflex during the fourth quarter, which negatively impacted earnings.

On this news, Kraton’s share price fell from $50.79 per share on February 20, 2018 to a closing price of $ 43.10 on February 21, 2018—a $7.69 or a 15.14% drop.
