According to the complaint, TerraForm Global owns and operates contracted “clean power” generation assets in emerging market countries. Prior to its IPO, TerraForm Global was known as “SunEdison Emerging Markets Co.” The bulk of TerraForm Global’s business is acquiring power generation assets that produce long-term contracted cash flows, primarily by serving utility and commercial customers from SunEdison.
The complaint alleges that TerraForm and certain of its executive officers made a series of false and misleading statements during the Class Period, and failed to disclose material adverse facts about the company’s business, operations, and prospects. Specifically, the complaint alleges that the defendants failed to disclose a number of problems seriously undermining TerraForm Global’s business and prospects. According to the complaint and unbeknownst to investors, the Registration Statement’s representations were materially untrue, inaccurate, misleading, and/or incomplete because they failed to disclose, inter alia, that, by the time of the July 31, 2015 IPO: (i) SunEdison was experiencing unprecedented losses that would be revealed mere days after TerraForm Global’s IPO was finalized; (ii) SunEdison was experiencing severe liquidity and debt issues that ended its ability to develop projects to sell to TerraForm Global, meaning that the company’s “YieldCo” business model was effectively moribund from the outset; and (iii) the aggressive growth plans for SunEdison and TerraForm Global were unachievable.
On August 6, 2015, only two days after the TerraForm Global IPO closed, SunEdison reported a loss of $263 million in its second quarter on $455 million of revenue, and a net loss of $0.93 per share compared to consensus estimates of a net loss of $0.55 per share. SunEdison’s debt was also reported at nearly $11 billion. Following this news, the company’s shares fell from $13.66 on August 5 to $11.27 on August 6, a drop of over 17%.
Then, on October 7, 2015, SunEdison revised down its installation projections for 2016 and said it did not expect to sell any projects through next year to TerraForm Global. Rather, SunEdison will be looking exclusively for outside buyers or will hold the projects on SunEdison’s balance sheet.
