Background on the ADM Securities Class Litigation

ADM, headquartered in Chicago, Illinois, is an agricultural supply chain manager and processor.

The action alleges that, throughout the Class Period, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements about the performance and prospects of ADM’s Nutrition segment, while engaging in improper accounting practices and procedures that obscured the segment’s true performance and purported growth.

On January 21, 2024, ADM announced that it had placed its CFO and Senior Vice President, defendant Vikram Luthar, on leave effective immediately.  According to ADM, Luthar’s “leave is pending an ongoing investigation being conducted by outside counsel for ADM and the Board’s Audit Committee regarding certain accounting practices and procedures with respect to ADM’s Nutrition segment, including as related to certain intersegment transactions.”  The Company also revealed that it launched its investigation after it received a request for documents from the Securities and Exchange Commission.  As a result, ADM delayed its Q4 and FY 2023 earnings release and withdrew its outlook for the Nutrition segment.  On this news, the price of ADM common stock plummeted $16.23 per share, or approximately 24%, from its closing price of $68.19 per share on the previous trading day, to close at $51.69 on January 22, 2024.
