NEW YORK, NY – March 22, 2021 – Kaplan Fox & Kilsheimer LLP (www.kaplanfox.com) is investigating claims on behalf of investors of Danimer Scientific Inc. (“Danimer” or the “Company”) (NYSE: DNMR).  

On March 20, 2021, The Wall Street Journal published an article entitled “Plastic Straws That Quickly Biodegrade in the Ocean, Not Quite, Scientists Say” concerning, among other things, Danimer’s claims that Nodax – a plant-based plastic that Danimer markets – breaks down far more quickly than fossil-fuel plastics.  The Wall Street Journal article alleges that according to several experts on biodegradable plastics, “many claims about Nodax are exaggerated and misleading.”  Danimer reportedly says its claims are factual, but at least one expert is cited as stating that making broad claims about Nodax’s biodegradability “is not accurate” and is “greenwashing.”

On March 22, 2021, the first trading day following the publication of The Wall Street Journal article concerning potentially inflated claims about Nodax, Danimer’s shares fell $6.43 per share, about 13%, to close at $43.55 per share.
