Market News Daily – Mullen CEO Speaks on Plunging Stock Price in New Letter.

Mullen Automotive (NASDAQ:MULN) CEO David Michery is now speaking out on the company’s plunging stock price in a new letter to shareholders.

Shares of the company ironically soared more than +78% on Wednesday as MULN stock tested $0.84.

In his letter, David Michery acknowledges numerous requests to the ongoing decline of the company stock.

“I am very disappointed by the performance of our stock. 

As I have previously publicly stated, I do not believe the trading price of our stock even closely resembles the Company’s actual value.

It is evident that, regardless of meeting significant corporate milestones (i.e., vehicle production completion within projected timelines), stock traders continue to place downward pressure on the stock, causing the price to fall.

I previously announced that the Company engaged Share Intel and other parties to investigate what I suspect to be unlawful trading practices in our stock.

We are assembling all the data received to date and should have something to announce in the coming days.

I am extremely frustrated that the hard work of Mullen‘s dedicated team and the significant momentum and successes achieved to date are overshadowed by the unrealistic value attributed to our stock.

The Company and I have demonstrated our commitment to the success of our initiatives by purchasing its stock through the previously announced Share Buy Back program

I have also personally recently purchased stock, demonstrating my unwavering confidence in our Company,” the CEO stated in his letter.

Shares of the company hit a 52-week low on Wednesday before share began to rise.

MULN stock is currently down more than -98% this year-to-date.

Below is the full letter from the Mullen CEO to shareholders.

“The Company has received numerous requests to respond to the ongoing decline of our stock. Many of these communications have been addressed to me personally with less than kind, and sometimes threatening statements.

As CEO of this Company, I take all shareholders’ concerns seriously. One of my primary responsibilities is to execute the Company’s business plan, and as evidenced by multiple prior communications to the public, the Company continues to make significant strides in that regard. I will summarize some of those at the end of this statement.

I am very disappointed by the performance of our stock.  As I have previously publicly stated, I do not believe the trading price of our stock even closely resembles the Company’s actual value. It is evident that, regardless of meeting significant corporate milestones (i.e., vehicle production completion within projected timelines), stock traders continue to place downward pressure on the stock, causing the price to fall.

I previously announced that the Company engaged Share Intel and other parties to investigate what I suspect to be unlawful trading practices in our stock. We are assembling all the data received to date and should have something to announce in the coming days.

I am extremely frustrated that the hard work of Mullen‘s dedicated team and the significant momentum and successes achieved to date are overshadowed by the unrealistic value attributed to our stock. The Company and I have demonstrated our commitment to the success of our initiatives by purchasing its stock through the previously announced Share Buy Back program.  I have also personally recently purchased stock, demonstrating my unwavering confidence in our Company.

I remain committed to executing the Company’s business plan and using all measures at our disposal to eliminate any unlawful trading practices in our stock.
