Background on Cummins Inc.

Founded in 1919 and headquartered in Columbus, Indiana, Cummins is a globally recognized multinational corporation that specializes in designing, manufacturing, and distributing a broad range of engines, filtration, and power generation products.

The Securities Fraud Claims

The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and/or misleading statements and/or omissions regarding Cummins’ business, operations, and prospects, including that: (i) contrary to its post-April 2019 assurances about its commitment to compliance, Cummins continued to produce engines with unlawful emission-defeating devices from 2019 to 2023; (ii) accordingly, Cummins understated its legal and regulatory risk, and misrepresented its commitment to environmental protection; and (iii) as a result, Defendants’ statements about its business, operations, and prospects, were materially false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis at all relevant times.

On Dec. 22, 2023, Cummins issued a press release announcing an agreement in principle with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the California Air Resources Board (“CARB”). On the same day, the United States Department of Justice released a press release titled “Attorney General Merrick Garland Statement on the Agreement in Principle with Cummins to Settle Alleged Installation of Illegal Defeat Devices in Engines.” On this news, Cummins’s stock price fell by $7.01 per share, or 2.87%, to close at $236.99 on December 22, 2023.
