Kirkland is a gold mining and exploration company with operations in Canada and  Australia.  Historically, Kirkland pursued a strategy based on high-grade underground mining with low all-in sustaining costs.  During the months leading up to November 25, 2019, Kirkland negotiated the acquisition of Detour Gold Corporation (“Detour”), an underperforming gold miner whose business depended on low-grade mining and high costs. 

The filed Complaint alleges that Kirkland made false and misleading statements to the public throughout the Class Period and failed to disclose that:

  • Kirkland lacked adequate internal controls over financial reporting, especially as it relates to its projections of risks, reserve grade, and all-in sustaining costs;
  • the Company’s projections relating to its risks, reserve grade, and all-in sustaining costs were false and misleading in light of the impending acquisition of Detour;
  • the Company’s financial statements and projections were not fairly presented in conformity with International Financial Reporting Standards; and
  • based on the foregoing, Defendants lacked a reasonable basis for their positive statements about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects and/or lacked a reasonable basis and omitted material facts.

On November 25, 2019, the company announced that it had agreed to acquire Detour.  On news of this acquisition, Kirkland’s shares fell from $47.62 per share to $39.44, a decline of $8.18, more than 17%.
