More than 70% of trading in Mullen Automotive (NASDAQ:MULN) stock is now happening in dark pools.
Shareholders have raised concerns around falling share prices despite several positive developments in the company.
The latest data shows that up to 70.52% of trading volume was re-routed off exchange in April so far.
Dark pool volume has averaged above 60% for the month of April.
Mullen’s trading volume on Monday soared to 739 million but only 47.58% of that volume was accounted for in the lit market.
The true demand for MULN stock is being suppressed, much like several tickers such as AMC who also has high short interest.
Investors on social media are urging CEO David Michery to open a lawsuit and investigation on the suppression of the company’s stock.
Currently trading below $0.10, Mullen Automotive stock risks getting delisted if it cannot meet Nasdaq’s $1 bid per share requirement.
As of Feb. 28, 2023, Mullen has $87,400,009 of cash and cash equivalents, including restricted cash, and Mullen also recently received an additional $110 million from firm commitments this month.
“I believe we have all the pieces in place between our product, factories, and strategic expertise to execute on our plans to deliver our Class 1 and Class 3 vehicles this year,” said David Michery, CEO and chairman of Mullen Automotive.
“Furthermore, we continue to invest and move at a fast clip with the Mullen FIVE program, which will soon be approaching vehicle engineering freeze, allowing us to move into the next phase of the crossover program.”

Retail Activists Are Fighting to Level the Playing Field
Nearly 35,000 retail investors have signed a letter to the SEC published by We The Investors requesting improvements to market rules and new disclosures.
The letter is introducing new disclosure in lending transparency, margin transparency, netting transparency, FTD transparency, as well as disclosure of registration, and many other rules that will help level the playing field for retail investors.
The efforts aim to prevent retail investors from being taken advantage of by bigger institutional investors.
Today, institutions have a big advantage using dark pools, which have the power to suppress true retail demand.
