The complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (a) the Company was not on track to produce commercially meaningful quantities of biofuel at its Columbus facility in the amounts projected by management; (b) the Company lacked adequate internal and financial controls over its calculation and forecasting of production levels at said facility; and (c) as a result of the foregoing, the Company's statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.
On August 8, 2013, KiOR announced it had only shipped 75,000 gallons of fuel from this facility during the second quarter.
