Gibbs Law Group Urges Arqit Investors to Submit Losses Before Court Deadline

An Arqit Quantum Class Action Lawsuit has been filed on behalf of investors who lost money in Arqit Quantum Inc. (NASDAQ: ARQQ) and investors have until July 5, 2022 to seek appointment as lead plaintiff in the case. On Monday, June 13, 2022, shares of Arqit Quantum dropped 15% to reach a new 52-week low, according to Defense World. Previously, shares had plummeted as much as 20% in intraday trading on April 18, 2022, after an article in the Wall Street Journal accused Arqit of making misleading statements to investors about the readiness and utility of its signature encryption system. According to Simply Wall St, Arqit’s share price has dropped 40% in the last year – particularly striking when compared to the overall market decline of 20%. If you purchased or acquired Arqit shares between September 7, 2021 and April 18, 2022, or if you held Centricus Acquisition Corp. securities on August 31, 2021 and were entitled to vote on the merger between Arqit and Centricus, contact Gibbs Law Group for more information about your legal rights.

To speak with an attorney regarding this class action lawsuit investigation, click here or call (888) 410-2925.

The Arqit class action lawsuit alleges, among other things, that the company made misleading statements or didn’t disclose information regarding its encryption technology. The Wall Street Journal states that a large part of Arqit’s pitch when going public via SPAC merger in September 2021 was that its signature Quantum Cloud product was selling well and had helped lock in a secure source of revenue. However, according to the Wall Street Journal, its flagship Quantum Cloud technology “might never apply beyond niche uses.” After speaking with insiders and reviewing documents, The Wall Street Journal also alleges that at IPO time, Arqit had “little more than an early-stage prototype of its encryption system.”

In February 2021, Arqit’s chief revenue officer resigned, reportedly citing concerns that the CEO was “overstating contracts and giving unrealistic revenue projections to potential investors.” Indeed, as reported by Seeking Alpha, Arqit’s CEO claimed the company had “comfortably more money than we need” and they “[didn’t] need to raise any more money, ever.” However, former employees and people familiar with the company claim that in reality, Arqit’s revenue is not from selling its product; instead, they allege that Arqit relies heavily on government research grants to meet its business goals. On May 12, 2022, Arqit announced financial and operational results of the first half of 2022, and reported an operating loss of $14.3 million for that period, significantly higher than the $5.5 million reported for the comparable period in 2021.

Following the allegations in the Wall Street Journal Report, Arqit Quantum stock plummeted over 20% in intraday trading on April 18, 2022 and another 15% on June 13, 2022, causing significant harm to investors.

Climate Impact X Selects Nasdaq Technology to Power New Global Carbon Exchange

  • Cloud-based SaaS technology from Nasdaq to underpin CIX’s third platform – a spot exchange for quality carbon credits
  • Partnership brings cutting-edge trading functionalities to the voluntary carbon market for the first time to serve the growing needs of financial institutions and institutional investors
  • Slated for launch in early 2023, the exchange will enable two-way spot trading via standardised contracts, increasing access to transparent pricing signals and real-time market data

NEW YORK and SINGAPORE, June 28, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Nasdaq (Nasdaq: NDAQ) and Climate Impact X (CIX), a global marketplace and exchange for quality carbon credits, today announced a strategic technology partnership that will help unlock price transparency and liquidity in the voluntary carbon market. The agreement will see CIX leverage Nasdaq’s robust matching technology to power its spot trading platform, which will launch in early 2023 for financial institutions and institutional investors worldwide.

Carbon credits have a range of attributes that can influence their price – such as the type of project or its location – since buyers value these characteristics differently. This inconsistency creates challenges in matching an individual buyer with a corresponding supplier, and can often be a time-consuming and inefficient process.i

Through Nasdaq’s Marketplace Services Platform, CIX will enable resilient and dynamically scalable trading in a cloud-based Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) environment. Furthermore, CIX’s spot exchange will match buyers and sellers based on unique requirements. This helps ensure that buyers are procuring quality credits that meet their regulatory obligations among other needs, while removing bottlenecks to supplier financing, further enabling the growth and development of the global carbon markets.

Designed according to rigorous regulatory, reliability and security standards proven in the financial industry, Nasdaq’s technology will enable CIX to bring exchange-grade trading functionalities to the voluntary carbon market. This will cater to the increasingly complex needs of buyers and sellers of standardised contracts.

Established as a joint venture between DBS Bank, Singapore Exchange (SGX Group), Standard Chartered and Temasek, CIX brings to life a vision to drive environmental impact at scale by building resilient platforms, collaborating with innovative partners, and fostering ecosystems that help companies take practical climate action. The upcoming launch of its spot exchange rounds out the suite of platforms CIX is developing to flexibly serve the market as well as create strong demand and pricing signals.

“One of CIX’s goals is to create strong pricing signals for the liquid market. Enabling a trade matching process that is as seamless as possible will help to simplify the buyer’s journey and improve price transparency in the voluntary carbon market,” said Mikkel Larsen, Chief Executive Officer of CIX. “Nasdaq brings unparalleled expertise in matching technology. We are pleased to join forces on our journey to build a global carbon exchange that is underpinned by quality and transparency.”

“As a technology partner to trusted market infrastructure operators and new markets around the world, Nasdaq is uniquely positioned to collaborate with a marketplace innovator like CIX to bring their bold climate vision to life through our SaaS technology platform,” said Roland Chai, Executive Vice President and Head of Market Platforms, Nasdaq. “We look forward to partner with CIX to develop and evolve the global carbon industry.”

The technology agreement between CIX and Nasdaq is the most recent step in Nasdaq’s efforts in the intersection of carbon transformation and technology space. Earlier in 2022, Nasdaq launched the world’s first carbon removal indexes. Meanwhile, CIX and Nasdaq partner Puro.earth recently announced a strategic partnership to increase access to quality nature- and technology-based carbon removal credits.

Nasdaq’s end-to-end market technology powers more than 2,300 companies in 50 countries, spanning the world’s financial industry, including capital markets infrastructure operators, market participants, banks, and regulators.

About Climate Impact X

Jointly established by DBS Bank, Singapore Exchange (SGX Group), Standard Chartered and Temasek, Climate Impact X (CIX) is a global marketplace and exchange for quality carbon credits based in Singapore.

The exchange will enable two-way spot trading of quality credits through standardised contracts, hosting liquid contracts and providing the market with clearer price transparency and risk management solutions.

The Convertible Preferred Shares pay a quarterly dividend at a fixed annual rate of 6.00% of the liquidation preference, or $1.50 per share, per year.

The Trust is required to redeem, out of funds legally available therefor, all outstanding Convertible Preferred Shares on June 30, 2029, or the “Term Redemption Date,” at a price equal to the liquidation preference plus an amount equal to accumulated but unpaid dividends and distributions, if any, on such shares (whether or not earned or declared, but excluding interest on such dividends) to, but excluding, the Term Redemption Date.

At any time on or after June 30, 2024, at the Trust’s sole option, the Trust may redeem, from time to time, the Convertible Preferred Shares in whole or in part, out of funds legally available for such redemption, at a price per share equal to the sum of the liquidation preference plus an amount equal to accumulated but unpaid dividends, if any, on such shares (whether or not earned or declared, but excluding interest on such dividends) to, but excluding, the date fixed for such redemption.

Each holder of a Convertible Preferred Share shall have the right, at such holder’s option, to convert any such Convertible Preferred Share, at any time on or after the date six months after the issuance date of the Convertible Preferred Share (the “Convertibility Date”) and prior to the close of business on the business day immediately preceding the Term Redemption Date, into such number of common shares of beneficial interest (“Common Shares”) equal to the liquidation preference of the Convertible Preferred Share plus an amount equal to all unpaid dividends and distributions on such Share accumulated to (but excluding) the date of exercise, divided by the Conversion Price. The “Conversion Price” is the greater of (i) the market price per Common Share, represented by the five-day volume-weighted average price (“VWAP”) per Common Share ending on the trading day immediately preceding the date of exercise, or (ii) the Trust’s most recently reported net asset value per Common Share immediately prior to the date of exercise.

The Convertible Preferred Shares will not be listed on any exchange and may not be transferred without the consent of the Trust.

Additional information regarding the Convertible Preferred Shares are included in a Current Report on Form 8-K to be filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”).

The Convertible Preferred Shares were offered directly to the purchasers without a placement agent, underwriter, broker or dealer.

The Convertible Preferred Shares and the Common Shares into which the Convertible Preferred Shares are convertible are being issued in reliance upon an exemption from registration under the Securities Act of 1933 (the “Securities Act”) and have not been registered under the Securities Act or any state securities laws and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration with the SEC or an applicable exemption from such registration requirements.

This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy the Convertible Preferred Shares, nor shall there be any sale of Convertible Preferred Shares in any state or other jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to the registration or qualification under the securities laws of such jurisdiction.

Concurrently, the Trust has entered into a Purchase Agreement with certain institutional investors for the purchase and sale of Common Shares in a registered direct placement pursuant to the Trust’s effective shelf registration statement filed with the SEC. The Trust has agreed to sell 1,450,000 Common Shares at a price of $6.90 per Common Share. The offering is expected to close on or about June 30, 2022, subject to the satisfaction of customary closing conditions. The Trust expects to receive net proceeds (before expenses) from the sale of Common Shares of approximately $10 million.

The Common Shares were offered directly to the purchasers without a placement agent, underwriter, broker or dealer.

The offering of Common Shares may be made only by means of a prospectus.

Investors should consider the investment objectives and policies, risk considerations, charges and expenses of the Trust carefully before investing. The preliminary prospectus supplement, dated June 28, 2022, and accompanying prospectus, dated February 10, 2022, each of which has been filed with the SEC, contain a description of these matters and other important information about the Trust and should be read carefully before investing.

Investors may also obtain these documents free of charge from the SEC’s website at www.sec.gov.

The information in the preliminary prospectus supplement, the accompanying prospectus and this press release is not complete and may be changed.
