INVESTOR ALERT: Law Offices of Howard G. Smith Announces Investigation of Compass Minerals International, Inc. (CMP) on Behalf of Investors

Law Offices of Howard G. Smith announces an investigation on behalf of Compass Minerals International, Inc. (“Compass” or the “Company”) (NYSE: CMP) investors concerning the Company’s possible violations of federal securities laws.

On September 23, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) announced that Compass had been ordered to pay $12 million to settle charges for “misleading investors” by repeatedly assuring that a technology update at its most significant salt mine was “on track to materially reduce costs and boost its operating results starting in 2018,” when, in reality, costs at the mine were increasing, “substantially [undermining] the projected savings.” Further, the SEC also noted that Compass overstated the amount of salt it was able to produce.

On this news, Compass’s stock fell $1.58, or 4.1%, to close at $36.88 per share on September 23, 2022, thereby injuring investors.
