NEW YORK, NY – August 21, 2020 – Kaplan Fox & Kilsheimer LLP (www.kaplanfox.com) is investigating claims on behalf of investors of GFL Environmental Inc. (“GFL” or the “Company”) (NYSE: GFL).  

In early March 2020, GFL conducted its initial public offering (“IPO”), issuing 75 million shares priced at $19 per share.

On August 18, 2020 Spruce Point Capital Management (“Spruce Point”) released a research opinion on GFL.  Among other things, Spruce Point states as follows:

Finds GFL has Obfuscated its Executives' Failures and Highly-Questionable Relationships, Including CEO Patrick Dovigi's Connections to What Observers Have Dubbed "Organized Crime" 

Makes the Case that GFL is an Opaque, Unsustainable Roll-Up of Roll-Ups Failing to Grow Free Cash Flow and Failing to Provide an Accurate Depiction of its Leverage

Highlights Aggressive Accounting and Reporting of Revenue, EBITDA, Cash Flow, Adjusted EPS and Capex – Pointing to Financial Control Issues Overlooked During GFL's 2020 IPO led by Underwriters JPMorgan Chase and Goldman Sachs

Underscores Belief that H1 2020 Adjusted Free Cash Flow is 60% Lower Than it Appears on the Surface

Following publication of the Spruce Point report, GFL’s stock price fell by $1.75 per share, over 8%, to close at $19.48 per share on August 18, 2020.
