CAN Capital Shareholder Files Lawsuit
Add an aggrieved shareholder to the list of CAN Capital’s recent messes. On December 19th, Deborah Clearman filed a motion for summary judgment in lieu of a complaint in the New York Supreme Court, alleging that CAN had failed to comply with a settlement agreement that stipulated she be paid $150,000 by November 14, 2016.
Clearman, who has been a shareholder of the company since 2003, is the owner of 83,362 shares of CAN Capital preferred Series A-1 stock and 48,078 shares of CAN Capital preferred Series A-2 stock, according to the settlement agreement now visible to the public because of New York State’s open court system.
The original dispute between the parties precedes the latest events rocking the company, though the alleged non-payment could be related to liquidity woes. CAN was only just served the summons on Wednesday the 21st and has not yet filed a response to the allegations.
CAN recently suffered a Rapid Amortization Event with their $200 million securitization, has suspended the funding of new deals and has laid off nearly half of their employees.
