NovaGold is engaged in the business of exploration and development of
mineral properties. Throughout the Class Period, Defendants falsely
portrayed NovaGold as a rapidly growing company by issuing a series of
materially false and misleading statements regarding the costs,
progress and viability of its multi-billion dollar Galore Creek
project. On October 25, 2006, NovaGold issued a press release touting
the results of a feasibility study performed by Hatch Ltd. (“Hatch”)
that purportedly “confirmed” the economic viability of the Galore Creek
project. However, on November 26, 2007, the Company shocked investors
when it announced that it would suspend activities at Galore Creek
based on the results of an updated feasibility study, which estimated
the capital costs for the Galore Creek project to be Cdn $5 billion —
approximately 127 percent greater than Hatch had estimated in October
2006. Upon the release of this news, the Company’s shares declined
$10.76 per share, or more than 53 percent, to close on November 26,
2007 at $9.48 per share, on unusually heavy trading volume.
