On September 9, 2019, a proposed class of investors filed a complaint in the Supreme Court of the State of New York against Sundial Growers over its $143 million IPO. Named plaintiff, Trisha Peters, filed the complaint after news surfaced regarding a defective order of cannabis that contained visible mold, parts of rubber gloves and “other non-cannabis material,” according to the complaint. On August 1, 2019, the Canadian-based cannabis producer’s IPO came to the Nasdaq Global Select Market, offering 11 million shares priced at $13 per share.
