PyroGenesis Comments on Today’s Market Activity Statement from the CEO
MONTREAL, April 28, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- PyroGenesis Canada Inc. (http://pyrogenesis.com) (TSX: PYR) (NASDAQ: PYR) (FRA: 8PY), a high-tech company, (hereinafter referred to as the “Company” or
“PyroGenesis”), a Company that designs, develops, manufactures and commercializes plasma atomized metal powder, environmentally friendly plasma waste-to-energy systems and clean plasma torch
products, issues this press release in response to significant inquiries from shareholders which have been addressed by the following statement from P. Peter Pascali, CEO and Chair of
“Our stock has reacted this morning to a report that seems to be a short seller attack on the Company, and was in no way affiliated with PyroGenesis, its management, or Board. At no time did the authors of the report contact PyroGenesis despite their contention that they did.
The report is replete with additional false and intentionally misleading statements, innuendoes, inaccuracies, outright distortions and lies, all of which appears to an attempt to generate panic selling. Regretfully, some investors may have made decisions based on these falsehoods.
We do not take this report lightly and we will take all legal action to hold those accountable for their actions. At PyroGenesis, we stand for freedom of opinions, but draw the line when lies are used for manipulation, no matter what side of the market one may be playing.
I wish to reassure all interested parties that as a person who controls between approximately 48%-52% of the PyroGenesis stock, I am totally committed to every aspect of this business, and further confirm that we at all times operate legally and, more importantly, morally.
At PyroGenesis, we are committed to building real value with real clients who are leaders in their respective industries, and we have successfully demonstrated this over many years. We do not believe that time spent addressing specific rantings by manipulators who have hidden agendas is a good use of Company’s time. However, we will note that we stand by all our disclosures.
Last but not least, on the topic of standing by all disclosures, I ask readers to put today’s report in its proper perspective. The report is faceless. No author. No address. No telephone numbers. No email. No access. On the other hand, PyroGenesis has been audited every year by reputable firms (KPMG has audited our accounts every year since 2015) who have had full access to all information, and we count the US NAVY, plus a host of other billion-dollar market leaders, as long-term clients/partners who have done their own due diligence and audits of the Company.
