(ARQQ) NEWS: Did You Lose Money on Your Arqit Quantum Investment? Contact Johnson Fistel Regarding Investigation

SAN DIEGO, April 30, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Shareholder rights law firm Johnson Fistel, LLP is investigating potential violations of the federal securities laws by Arqit Quantum, Inc. (“Arqit” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: ARQQ & ARQQW).

What is Johnson Fistel investigating? On April 18, 2022, the Wall Street Journal released an article in regards to the Arqit’s September 2021 SPAC Merger. The company pitched its signature Quantum Cloud product was selling well and had helped lock in a secure source of revenue. But according to the Wall Street Journal, its flagship Quantum Cloud technology “might never apply beyond niche uses.” After interviewing insiders and reviewing documents, The Wall Street Journal further alleges that at IPO time, Arqit had “little more than an early-stage prototype of its encryption system.”

In February 2021, the chief revenue officer of Arqit resigned citing that the CEO was “overstating contracts and giving unrealistic revenue projections to potential investors.” Indeed, as reported by Seeking Alpha, Arqit’s CEO claimed the company had “comfortably more money than we need” and they “[didn’t] need to raise any more money, ever.” However, former employees and people familiar with the company claim that in reality, Arqit's revenue is not from selling its product; instead, they say Arqit largely relies on government research grants to meet its business goals.

Following this news, the price of Arqit shares traded down 17% on April 18, 2022.
