HUT 8 ALERT: Bragar Eagel & Squire, P.C. Announces that a Class Action Lawsuit Has Been Filed Against Hut 8 Corp. and Encourages Investors to Contact the Firm

NEW YORK, Feb. 07, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Bragar Eagel & Squire, P.C., a nationally recognized stockholder rights law firm, announces that a class action lawsuit has been filed against Hut 8 Corp (NASDAQ: HUT ). (Hut 8 or the Company) ( NASDAQ : HUT) in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York on behalf of all persons and entities who purchased or otherwise acquired Hut 8 securities between November 9, 2023 and January 18, 2024, both dates inclusive (the Class Period). Investors have until April 8, 2024 to apply to the Court to be appointed as lead plaintiff in the lawsuit.

In November 2023, Hut 8 formed following the merger of Hut 8 Mining Corp. (Legacy Hut) and U.S. Data Mining Group, Inc. d/b/a US Bitcoin Corp. (USBTC) (the Merger). USBTC held a 50% interest in a joint venture bitcoin mining facility, located in King Mountain, Texas (the King Mountain JV), which was acquired in the Merger.

On January 18, 2024, at approximately 10:30 AM EST, J Capital Research published a report which alleged, inter alia, that Hut 8's merger with USBTC was premised on a number of alleged misstatements, including (1) that the USBTC had an undisclosed related party as one of its largest shareholders, (2) that one of USBTC's core assets, the King Mountain JV, has historically failed to provide energy and high-speed internet, and (3) that the Company had misstated certain finances of the King Mountain JV by failing to account for certain interest expenses. Citing individuals highly familiar with USBTC, the report stated that, without the Merger, USBTC would have undergone bankruptcy and that USBTC had a value estimated to be 70% less than the approximately $745 million that Hut 8 paid to acquire it.

On this news, Hut 8's stock price fell $2.16, or 23.3%, to close at $7.12 per share on January 18, 2024, on unusually heavy trading volume.

The complaint filed in this class action alleges that throughout the Class Period, 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: (1) that one of USBTC's largest shareholders is an undisclosed related party; (2) that USBTC's core asset has historically failed to provide energy and high-speed internet; (3) that the profitability of certain USBTC assets were overstated; and (4) that, 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.
