NEW YORK, June 24, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Pomerantz LLP announces that a class action lawsuit has been filed on behalf of Vivint Solar, Inc. shareholders (“Vivint” or the “Company”) (NYSE:VSLR) against certain officers of SunEdison Inc. (“SunEdison”).   The class action, filed in United States District Court, Eastern District of Missouri, and docketed under 16-cv-00628, is on behalf of a class consisting of all persons or entities who purchased or otherwise acquired Vivint securities between July 20, 2015 and March 7, 2016 inclusive (the “Class Period”).  This class action seeks to recover damages against Defendants for alleged violations of the federal securities laws under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”). 

If you are a shareholder who purchased Vivint securities during the Class Period, you have until July 5, 2016 to ask the Court to appoint you as Lead Plaintiff for the class.  A copy of the Complaint can be obtained at www.pomerantzlaw.com.   To discuss this action, contact Robert S.

Vivint is a provider of distributed solar energy, which is electricity generated by a solar energy system installed at a customer’s location, including residential, commercial and industrial properties throughout the United States.  In July 2015, SunEdison and Vivint announced a merger pursuant to which SunEdison would acquire Vivint.   On this announcement, Vivint’s stock price increased $4.87, an increase of approximately 44.8%, to close at $15.75.  On February 24, 2016, at the Company’s special shareholders meeting, Vivint shareholders voted to approve the merger with SunEdison.

The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and misleading statements regarding the Company’s business, operational and compliance policies. Specifically, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (i) SunEdison would be unable to obtain financing for the acquisition of Vivint; (ii) SunEdison’s liquidity was less than Defendants had stated; (iii) SunEdison would not be able to complete the acquisition of Vivint; and (iv) as a result, Defendants’ statements about the merger between SunEdison and Vivint were materially false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis at all relevant times.

On February 29, 2016, after the market closed, SunEdison filed a Notification of Late Filing on Form 12b-25 with the SEC, disclosing that the Company would be unable to timely file its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2015. The Notification of Late Filing included information that in late 2015, former SunEdison executives had made allegations concerning the accuracy of SunEdison’s financial position.

On this news, shares of Vivint fell $1.37 per share or over 17% from the stock’s previous closing price to close at $6.52 per share on March 1, 2016, damaging investors.

On March 2, 2016, during trading hours, The Wall Street Journal published an article entitled, “SunEdison’s Takeover of Vivint Solar in Jeopardy as Banks Balk” stating that the Vivint-SunEdison merger was in jeopardy.

On this news, shares of Vivint fell $1.63 per share or 25% from the stock’s previous closing price to close at $4.89 per share on March 2, 2016, damaging investors.

On March 8, 2016, Vivint announced that it was terminating the Merger Agreement. Also on March 8, 2016, Vivint filed a lawsuit against SunEdison in Delaware Chancery Court alleging breach of contract.

On this news, shares of Vivint fell $1.04 per share or approximately 20% from the stock’s previous closing price to close at $5.21 per share on March 7, 2016, damaging investors.

SHAREHOLDER ALERT: Pomerantz Law Firm Reminds Shareholders with Losses on their Investment in Sunrun Inc. of Class Action Lawsuit and Upcoming Deadline – RUN

NEW YORK, June 24, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Pomerantz LLP announces that a class action lawsuit has been filed against Sunrun Inc. (“Sunrun” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ:RUN) and certain of its officers.   The class action, filed in United States District Court, Northern District of California, and docketed under 16-cv-02480, is on behalf of a class consisting of all persons or entities who purchased or otherwise acquired Sunrun securities pursuant or traceable to the Company’s Registration Statement and its Prospectus issued in connection with the Company’s Initial Public Offering (the “Offering” or “IPO”), which commenced on or about August 5, 2015.  This class action seeks to recover damages against Defendants for alleged violations of the federal securities laws under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”) and the Securities Act of 1933 (the “1933 Act”). 

If you are a shareholder who purchased Sunrun securities pursuant to the Company’s IPO, you have until July 5, 2016 to ask the Court to appoint you as Lead Plaintiff for the class.  A copy of the Complaint can be obtained at www.pomerantzlaw.com. To discuss this action, contact Robert S. Willoughby at rswilloughby@pomlaw.com or 888.476.6529 (or 888.4-POMLAW), toll free, ext. 9980.

Sunrun is a provider of residential solar electricity and purports to operate the “second largest fleet of residential solar energy systems” in the United States.

On or about March 27, 2015, Sunrun filed with the SEC its registration statement on Form S-l (Registration No. 333- 205217), which was amended and later declared effective by the SEC (the “Registration Statement”). Meanwhile, lawmakers in the Nevada Legislature rejected a call by rooftop solar companies, including Sunrun, to increase the cap on the number of consumers who can participate in net metering solar programs from 3% to a higher level. On August 5, 2015, Sunrun sold 17.9 million shares at $14.00 per share as part of its IPO.

The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements, as well as failed to disclose material adverse facts about Sunrun’s business, operations, and prospects. Specifically, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (a) Sunrun’s actual historical operating costs were being understated by not identifying and disclosing the fixed grid costs being borne for it by public utilities where net metering programs were being employed; (b) Sunrun had been charging well above wholesale rates for the electricity it was selling to its net metering customers; (c) contrary to having listed customers dispersed across 15 states and the District of Columbia in its Registration Statement, Sunrun had a substantial 20% customer concentration in Nevada alone; (d) Sunrun’s ability to continue to convince customers to sign 20-year contracts—which lowers the fixed costs for installing solar systems on those customers’ houses—was in jeopardy due to the ongoing regulatory review of net metering programs in 20 of the 40 states that then permitted net metering; (e) because Sunrun was employing an unreasonably low discount rate of 6% in calculating the value of its retained assets, it was overstating their value; and (f) as a result of the foregoing, at the time of the IPO, the Company’s business and financial prospects were not what defendants had led the market to believe they were in the Registration Statement.

In the eight months since the IPO, as the market learned that Sunrun relied on complex debt arrangements to fund its growth and could not sustain the revenues the Company forecast leading up to the IPO, Sunrun stock fell as low as $4.86 per share, and closed at $7.50 per share on May 6, 2016.

Sunrun Named DOE Sunshot Change Champion

June 22, 2016 at 1:00 pm Comments are Disabled

SAN FRANCISCO, June 23, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Sunrun Inc. (Nasdaq:RUN), the largest dedicated residential solar company in the United States, today announced it has been named a SunShot Prize Change Champion by the U.S. Department of Energy’s SunShot Initiative for slashing the time it takes to get solar on a home. BrightPath, Sunrun’s innovative software platform, powered the substantial time reduction by streamlining Sunrun’s installation process.

The SunShot Prize: Race to 7-Day Solar launched in September 2015 with the goal of motivating local governments, communities, solar companies and electric utilities to reduce the time it takes to go solar to one week. In some regions across the United States, it takes up to six months to connect to the grid. Sunrun was selected as a Change Champion from among five organizations participating in the race for permitting, installing and flipping the switch on more than 3 MW of rooftop solar in approximately one month. As a Change Champion, Sunrun will be awarded $100,000 and will continue innovating time reductions until March 2017 when the SunShot Initiative will award two grand prizes totaling $4 million.

“Sunrun’s proprietary technology, BrightPath, is designed to make the process of getting solar simple, quick and affordable for homeowners,” said Gary Wayne, vice president of strategic projects at Sunrun. “We’re honored to announce that with BrightPath we’ve successfully exceeded DOE’s installation challenge and earned the distinction of Change Champion.”

BrightPath was developed in part with support from a SunShot Initiative Incubator 8 award. The software provides workflow automation, automatic design generation, shade analysis, energy simulation, pricing and contract generation, real-time change order management, and automatic permit-set generation. It significantly reduces wait times and lowers soft costs of installing residential rooftop solar, which can account for more than half the price of the solar system.

Sunrun invented solar-as-a-service to help homeowners go solar without the high upfront cost and hassle. Today Sunrun is focused on innovating new solutions like BrightPath and Sunrun BrightBox™, a solar power plus energy storage product, to continue to drive down the cost of electricity and offer customers more choice and control.

AD-HOC-ANNOUNCEMENT

CHORUS Clean Energy AG acquires French wind park portfolio with a total
capacity of 62.2 megawatts

Neubiberg/Munich, June 22, 2016 – CHORUS Clean Energy AG (“CHORUS”) based
in Neubiberg near Munich, a company specializing in the operation of solar
and wind parks, acquired a wind park portfolio in the Poitou-Charentes
region in Western France near the Atlantic coast with a total capacity of
62.2 megawatts (MW). With this purchase, CHORUS has invested – to a large
extent – the funds from its IPO in October 2015 as anticipated.

The wind park portfolio consists of four wind parks. Since July 2015 two of
the wind parks with eight Vestas V90 turbines were already connected to the
grid in July 2015. Over the course of August and September, the other two
parks, which are nearly complete, will begin operations. These two parks
will have a total of 14 Vestas V117 turbines.

CHORUS expects that the turbines will on average contribute about EUR 15
million to the company’s revenue annually during the term of the feed-in
tariff. The total investment volume, including the debt component, for the
wind parks amounts to about EUR 120 million. This is the largest single
investment in the history of CHORUS Clean Energy AG. The purchase is still
subject to the customary conditions precedent. The seller is the wind
project developer Volkswind GmbH, a subsidiary of the Swiss energy group
Axpo.

Based on the secured portfolio and the already signed asset management
agreements CHORUS expects revenues of more than EUR 62 million and an
operating result (EBITDA) of more than EUR 46 million (2015: EUR 42.9
million) for the full year 2016. Additional investments as well as
additional asset management agreements over the course of the year have not
been taken into consideration.
