ROSEN, A TOP RANKED LAW FIRM, Encourages Plug Power Inc. Investors with Losses to Secure Counsel Before Important Deadline in Securities Class Action – PLUG

NEW YORK, May 20, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) —

WHY: Rosen Law Firm, a global investor rights law firm, reminds purchasers of common stock of Plug Power Inc. (NASDAQ: PLUG) between August 9, 2022 and March 1, 2023, both dates inclusive (the “Class Period”) of the important June 12, 2023 lead plaintiff deadline.

SO WHAT: If you purchased Plug Power common stock during the Class Period you may be entitled to compensation without payment of any out of pocket fees or costs through a contingency fee arrangement.

WHAT TO DO NEXT: To join the Plug Power class action, go to https://rosenlegal.com/submit-form/?case_id=1011 or call Phillip Kim, Esq. toll-free at 866-767-3653 or email pkim@rosenlegal.com or cases@rosenlegal.com for information on the class action. A class action lawsuit has already been filed. If you wish to serve as lead plaintiff, you must move the Court no later than June 12, 2023. A lead plaintiff is a representative party acting on behalf of other class members in directing the litigation.

WHY ROSEN LAW: We encourage investors to select qualified counsel with a track record of success in leadership roles. Often, firms issuing notices do not have comparable experience, resources or any meaningful peer recognition. Many of these firms do not actually litigate securities class actions, but are merely middlemen that refer clients or partner with law firms that actually litigate the cases. Be wise in selecting counsel. The Rosen Law Firm represents investors throughout the globe, concentrating its practice in securities class actions and shareholder derivative litigation. Rosen Law Firm has achieved the largest ever securities class action settlement against a Chinese Company. Rosen Law Firm was Ranked No. 1 by ISS Securities Class Action Services for number of securities class action settlements in 2017. The firm has been ranked in the top 4 each year since 2013 and has recovered hundreds of millions of dollars for investors. In 2019 alone the firm secured over $438 million for investors. In 2020, founding partner Laurence Rosen was named by law360 as a Titan of Plaintiffs’ Bar. Many of the firm’s attorneys have been recognized by Lawdragon and Super Lawyers.

DETAILS OF THE CASE: The lawsuit alleges that, throughout the Class Period, defendants made materially false and/or misleading statements, as well as failed to disclose material adverse facts, about Plug’s business and operations. Specifically, defendants misrepresented and/or failed to disclose that Plug was unable to effectively manage its supply chain and product manufacturing, resulting in reduced revenues and margins, increased inventory levels, and several large deals being delayed until at least 2023, among other issues. As a result, defendants’ statements about Plug Power’s business, operations, prospects, and ability to effectively manage its supply chain and production lacked a reasonable basis. When the true details entered the market, the lawsuit claims that investors suffered damages.

To join the Plug Power class action, go to https://rosenlegal.com/submit-form/?case_id=1011 or call Phillip Kim, Esq. toll-free at 866-767-3653 or email pkim@rosenlegal.com or cases@rosenlegal.com for information on the class action.

No Class Has Been Certified. Until a class is certified, you are not represented by counsel unless you retain one. You may select counsel of your choice. You may also remain an absent class member and do nothing at this point. An investor’s ability to share in any potential future recovery is not dependent upon serving as lead plaintiff.

Saudi Foreign Minister: Jeddah Summit addressed prominent Arab issues…. Aboul Gheit: the Summit achieved its targets

Saudi Foreign Minister, Prince Faisal bin Farhan Al Saud, has affirmed that the 32nd Arab Summit of Jeddah discussed the most prominent Arab, regional and international issues affecting member states and their common interests, expressing his country’s hope that Syria’s return to the League of Arab States would contribute to supporting its stability and resuming its normal role in the Arab world.

“The member states welcomed the Ministerial Arab decision to resume Syria’s participation in the meetings of the Arab Council,” Prince bin Farhan said at a joint press conference with Secretary-General of League of Arab States, Ahmed Aboul Gheit following the conclusion of the Arab Summit works, hoping this step would contribute to supporting the stability of Syria, preserving its territorial integrity.

Bin Farhan went on saying that Saudi Arabia and members of Arab League affirmed that there is no solution to the crisis in Syria except through dialogue, partnership and cooperation with the Syrian government.

He noted that there is a humanitarian crisis and there are Syrian refugees who want to return to their country, and we must help them, and there is a difficult economic situation which affected the Syrian people, thus, we should help to find practical and realistic solutions.

Regarding the situation in Sudan, Saudi Foreign Minister stated that his country is working to create an atmosphere to reach a humanitarian truce after the decision taken through the meeting of Sudanese parties in Jeddah, which stipulated adhering to humanitarian principles and protecting civilians.

He called on all parties to assume responsibility through dialogue and to refrain from using weapons to resolve differences, since the Sudanese citizen is the one who pays the price.

For his part, Aboul Gheit stated that the decision regarding return of Syria to the League has a very clear symbol, and there is a desire that this be the beginning of resolving the crisis, restoring Syria to its normal role within the Arab system, and overcoming the difficult circumstances which have faced the country.

He stressed that the situation in Syria is a priority and the League will work with the Syrian government to secure return of Syrian refugees to their homes, hoping that the West will help achieve this goal in accordance with the UN Security Council resolution that stipulated support for early recovery projects.

Damask Rose, ambassador of peace and love from Syria to the world

Damascus, one of the oldest cities in the world, whose streets, mountains and even houses, were able to defeat the invaders, while its flowers give peace and love in the face of hatred that the sponsors of terrorism tried to impose and sow.

Ancient flower known for its fragrance

Among the roses, for which Damascus is famous, is the Damask Rose, an ancient flower known for its fragrance and its therapeutic uses, which was considered the ambassador of Syria to the world.

The Greek poet Sappho called her the Queen of Flowers, and the Greek Historian Homer mentioned her in the Iliad and the Odyssey ; and when the English poet Shakespeare wanted to describe beauty in his maximum expression, he said in one of the texts of his plays: “Beautiful as the beautiful Rose of Damascus.” As for the Arab world, the great poet Nizar Qabbani, a native of the city of Damascus, wrote about this flower in his masterpiece (Poemario Damascene).

Symbol of beauty and love

Thanks to its intoxicating fragrance and its dazzling shape, it was considered the symbol of beauty and love, and due to its therapeutic, relaxing, and disinfectant virtues, it was registered in 2019 by the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) within the representative list of the intangible heritage of humanity.

One of the ancient Greek legends says that the Greek Goddess of Beauty, when she saw the charm and beauty of the city of Damascus, became jealous, and for this reason she created this rose to compete with it in its beauty, and called it the Damascus rose.

The Damascenes confirm that it was so called because it first grew in the land of Damascus.

The town of al-Mrah, about 60 km north of Damascus, is the main producer of the Damask Rose since this town enjoys a special climate characterized by cold winters, and is, as farmers say, one of the towns where the snow stays longer on the mountain peaks and highlands and this climate is very suitable for growing the Damask Rose.

The farmers of al-Mrah grow this Rose in the period between December and March months, and when it blooms in May, they go out with their families to manually collect the roses.

After the harvesting process is complete, the buds of the roses are collected and exposed to the sun for several days to dry, and then brought to the perfumers in the old markets of Damascus, especially the al-Bazourieh popular market.

Rose Water, one of the products extracted from the Damask Rose

One of the most important products of this rose is rose water (Ma Alward, in Arabic) and it is extracted by a machine called “Al-Karakah”, and it is extracted from the distillation of rose petals where every thousand kilograms of roses produces a liter of water.

These rose petal scented waters are rich in vitamins B and E, and are used to soften and care for the skin.

An extensive study from 2011 analyzed the existing evidence on the different properties attributed to these products, including its high content of vitamin C, which is very necessary to synthesize collagen since, being an antioxidant, it protects our skin from aging.This water is also a typical ingredient in the desserts that Syrian women make and use it to flavor sweets and drinks.

The most expensive oil in the world is also extracted from the Damask Rose and the Chinese considered it more valuable than gold and more durable than oil.
