Maxar Technologies Inc. (MAXR) Accused of Inflating the Value of its Intangible Assets
According to the complaint, in October 2017, MacDonald, Dettwiler and Associated Ltd. purchased DigitalGlobe and acquired DigitalGlobe’s satellites, including the WorldView-4 satellite, and rebranded itself as Maxar. In March 2018, Maxar announced a contract to build a satellite called AMOS-8, touting the contract as a win. A few months later, on August 7, 2018, Spruce Point Capital Management issued a report questioning Maxar’s financial statements and alleging that “Maxar’s balance sheet [was] inflated with goodwill and overcapitalized intangible assets,” estimating an impairment in intangible assets in the hundreds of millions of dollars. Then, in September 2018, Maxar revealed the loss of its AMOS-8 contract. In October 2018, the Company disclosed $345.9 million in impairment losses and $37.7 million impairment charges related to its GeoComm business. In addition to these disclosures, on January 7, 2019, Maxar announced its WorldView-4 “[would] no longer produce useable energy” because it had lost stability. Since news of Maxar’s troubles became public, the Company’s stock has plunged 73%, currently trading at around $12. Maxar was named in a securities class action lawsuit, which could further deplete the Company’s assets.
