Alio Gold Inc. Class Action

0116064 B.C. Ltd. v. Alio Gold Inc., et al., Supreme Court of British Columbia, Vancouver Registry No. S-194929

Up to date information on this class action including filed documents, can be found here.

The Action

A proposed class action was commenced against Alio Gold Inc. (“Alio”) in the British Columbia Supreme Court on April 25, 2019.  The proposed action is with respect to certain misrepresentations alleged to have been made by Alio in connection with its acquisition of all outstanding shares in the common stock of mining company Rye Patch Gold Corp. (“Rye Patch”) in the spring of 2018. A filed copy of the notice of civil claim can be found here.

The action alleges that the conduct of Alio constitutes fraudulent and negligent misrepresentation for which Alio is liable under the Securities Act, RSBC 1996, c 418 and at common law, particularly with respect to Alio’s anticipated gold production for 2018. 

Proposed Class 

This action is brought on behalf of members of a proposed class consisting of all individuals and entities whose shares in Rye Patch were acquired by Alio in the spring of 2018 have suffered damage and loss, including due to the artificial inflation of the share price of Alio at the time of the acquisition.  There is currently no date set for the certification hearing.
