The Allegations: Robbins LLP is Investigating the Allegations that The Chemours Company (CC) Had Deficient Accounting Practices and Procedures

According to the complaint, during the class period, defendants failed to disclose that (1) certain of the Company’s senior executive officers manipulated Free Cash Flow targets as a means to maximize additional cash and stock incentive compensation applicable to executive officers pursuant to the Company’s AIPs and LTIPs, and (2) the Company had deficient accounting practices and procedures, including internal control over financial reporting.

Plaintiff alleges that on February 13, 2024, Chemours "announced that it has postponed the release of its financial results and conference call related to the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2023, which had previously been scheduled for February 14, 2024 and February 15, 2024, respectively,” and that it now “expect[ed] to issue its fourth quarter and full year 2023 financial results after market close on Wednesday, February 28, 2024.” According to the Company, “it needs additional time to complete its year-end reporting process” and “is evaluating its internal control over financial reporting . . . with respect to maintaining effective controls related to information and communications.” Chemours also revealed that it needed additional time for its Audit Committee to conduct a related internal review. On this news, the price of Chemours common stock fell$3.85 per share, or more than 12%, from a close of $30.49 per share on February 13, 2024, to close at $26.64 per share on February 14, 2024.

Then, on February 29, 2024, Chemours announced that it was delaying the filing of its annual report for 2023 and that its Board of Directors (the “Board”) had “place[d] President and Chief Executive Officer Mark Newman, Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer Jonathan Lock and Vice President, Controller and Principal Accounting Officer Camela Wisel on administrative leave . . . pending the completion of an internal review being overseen by the Audit Committee of the Board of Directors with the assistance of independent outside counsel.” According to the Company, the scope of the investigation “includes the processes for reviewing reports made to the Chemours Ethics Hotline” and Chemours’s “practices for managing working capital, including the related impact on metrics within the Company’s incentive plans [and] certain non-GAAP metrics” in the Company’s financial reports. The Company further acknowledged that it “is evaluating one or more potential material weaknesses in its internal control over financial reporting as of December 31, 2023 with respect to maintaining effective controls related to the control environment, including the effectiveness of the ‘tone at the top’ set by certain members of senior management.” On this news, the price of Chemours common stock plummeted $9.05 per share, or more than 31%, from a close of $28.72 per share on February 28, 2024, to close at $19.67 per share on February 29, 2024.
