Background on the Nuverra Securities Class Litigation

The actions charge Nuverra and certain of its officers and directors with violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Nuverra purports to be an environmental solutions company that provides services to customers in energy and industrial end-markets.

The actions allege that throughout the Class Period, defendants made materially false and misleading statements regarding Nuverra's financial performance and business prospects. Specifically the actions allege that defendants misrepresented and/or failed to disclose: (a) that Nuverra was suffering from a severe liquidity crisis; (b) that the Company was undergoing a significant decline in its operational results, especially in the Eagle Ford Shale area; (c) that as a result of the Company's poor financial performance, Nuverra's default risk materially increased and the Company faced potential defaults on its covenants; and (d) based upon the above, defendants lacked a reasonable basis for their positive statements about the Company during the Class Period.

On July 30, 2013, the Company issued a press release announcing its preliminary financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2013. Nuverra stated that its earnings before interest taxes depreciation and amortization ("EBITDA") would be significantly lower than previously projected. On this news, the price of Nuverra common stock dropped more than 30% to close at $3.04 per share on July 30, 2013.

On August 23, 2013, after markets closed, Seeking Alpha.com published a report that disclosed, among other things, information concerning the Company's acquisition of Badlands Power Fuels, LLC, and discussed how that acquisition was hampering the Company's financial performance. On this news, the price of Nuverra common stock declined an additional 11.76%, to close at $2.40 per share on August 26, 2013.
