Bernstein Liebhard LLP announces that a securities class action lawsuit has been filed on behalf of investors who purchased or acquired the securities of Archer Aviation, Inc. (“Archer” or the “Company”) (NYSE: ACHR) between September 17, 2021 and August 15, 2023, inclusive (the “Class Period”).

According to the Complaint, Archer purports to design and develop electric vertical takeoff and landing (“eVTOL”) aircraft for use in urban air mobility (“UAM”) networks. Since its inception, Archer has consistently touted the efficacy of its eVTOL aircraft design and flight testing procedures, the profitability of its business partnerships, and its ability to secure from the Federal Aviation Administration (“FAA”) the necessary regulatory certification for the mass production of aircraft for commercial use.
Plaintiff alleges that Defendants made materially false and misleading statements throughout the Class Period, including failing to disclose to investors that Archer: (i) relied on heavily edited videos of earlier flights to exaggerate the amount of flight testing it had performed and the sophistication of its eVTOL aircraft; (ii) had misrepresented the nature and profitability of its business partnerships, (iii) was unlikely to secure FAA certification in the timeframe it had represented to investors.
On August 16, 2023, before the market opened, Grizzly Research released a report on Archer (the “Report”). The Report alleged, among other things, that Archer relies on heavily edited videos of earlier flights to misrepresent the amount of flight testing the Company has actually performed and the sophistication of Archer’s eVTOL aircraft. The Report also alleged that investigators who had spoken to former Archer employees and businesses in close proximity to its flight-testing facilities who witness its flights, confirmed that Archer conducts far fewer flights than the Company has claimed. Finally, the Report alleged that Archer misrepresented the timelines for its lab and manufacturing facility in San Jose, California, becoming operational, and securing FAA certification of its prototype aircraft.
On this news, Archer’s stock price fell $0.41 per share, or 6.46%, to close at $5.94 per share on August 16, 2023.

A lead plaintiff is a representative party acting on behalf of other class members in directing the litigation. Your ability to share in any recovery doesn’t require that you serve as lead plaintiff.
