Arconic Inc. (NYSE:ARNC) Misled Investors about sales of Reynobond PE for unsafe uses

A federal judge in Pennsylvania said on June 21, 2019, that the investors can’t pursue the claims that Arconic Inc. (NYSE:ARNC) hid unsafe use of a company product, that were linked to a deadly London fire.

Arconic Inc. (NYSE:ARNC)’s Reynobond PE paneling was part of Grenfell Tower’s exterior cladding system and allegedly contributed to the fire’s speedy growth. But investors didn’t “adequately, plausibly plead” that Arconic hid or misled them about sales of Reynobond PE for unsafe uses, the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania said. It dismissed the case without prejudice.

The June 2017 fire killed 71 people and injured an additional 70. Arconic’s share price dropped almost $4 (9.5%) when Reynobond PE was identified less than two weeks later as a potential contributor to the fire’s rapid spread, the opinion said. Arconic stopped selling Reynobond PE for use on high-rise buildings the same day the company’s stock dropped.
