NEW YORK, Feb. 17, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Bernstein Liebhard, a nationally acclaimed investor rights law firm, reminds investors of the deadline to file a lead plaintiff motion in a securities class action lawsuit that has been filed on behalf of investors who purchased or acquired the securities of QuantumScape Corporation ("QuantumScape" or the "Company") (NYSE: QS) from November 27, 2020 through December 31, 2020 (the "Class Period").

The complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period the Defendants made materially false and/or misleading statements, as well as failed to disclose material adverse facts about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects. Specifically, Defendants failed to disclose to investors that: (i) the Company’s purported success related to its solid-state battery power, battery life, and energy density were significantly overstated; (ii) the Company is unlikely to be able to scale its technology to the multi-layer cell necessary to power electric vehicles; and (iii) as a result of the foregoing, Defendants’ positive statements about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects were materially misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.
On January 4, 2021, an article was published on Seeking Alpha. That article pointed to a number of risks associated with QuantumScape’s solid state batteries. These risks make QuantumScape’s batteries “completely unacceptable for real world field electric vehicles.” The article specifically stated that QuantumScape’s battery’s power meant it would “only last for 260 cycles or about 75,000 miles of aggressive driving.”
On this news, the price of QuantumScape’s shares fell $34.49 or approximately 40.84% to close at $49.96 per share on January 4, 2021.
If you wish to serve as lead plaintiff, you must move the Court no later than March 8, 2021. A lead plaintiff is a representative party acting on behalf of other class members in directing the litigation. Your ability to share in any recovery doesn’t require that you serve as lead plaintiff. If you choose to take no action, you may remain an absent class member.
