Maxar Technologies Inc. (MAXR) Accused of Inflating the Value of its Intangible Assets

According to the complaint against the company for alleged violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 between February 22, 2018 and January 7, 2019, in October 2017, MacDonald, Dettwiler and Associates Ltd purchased DigitalGlobe and acquired DigitalGlobe’s satellites, including the WorldView-4 satellite, and rebranded itself as Maxar Technologies Inc. (MAXR).  Unbeknownst to investors, the WorldView-4 – which had a net book value of approximately $155 million – was equipped with faulty devices that would ultimately render the satellite unusable.  On August 7, 2018, Spruce Point Capital Management reported that Maxar acquired DigitalGlobe to inflate its intangible assets and engaged in an aggressive accounting scheme to inflate Non-IFRS earnings by 79%.  On January 7, 2019, Maxar revealed that WorldView-4 experienced a failure and that the satellite would not be recoverable and would no longer produce usable imagery.  Since news of Maxar’s troubles became public, the company’s stock has plunged over 80% and currently trades at $7.63.
