Farmland Partners is a real estate company that owns and seeks to
acquire high-quality North American farmland and makes loans to farmers
secured by farm real estate. Farmland purports to own or have under
contract over 166,000 acres in 17 states.

According to the lawsuit, throughout the Class Period defendants made
false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1)
Farmland Partners artificially increased its revenues by making loans to
related party tenants; (2) as a result of the foregoing, Farmland
Partners' Class Period revenues were overstated; and (3) as a result,
Farmland Partners' public statements were materially false and
misleading at all relevant times.

On July 11, 2018, Rota Fortunae published an online report on the
website Seeking Alpha entitled "Farmland Partners: Loans to
Related-Party Tenants Introduce Significant Risk Of Insolvency - Shares
Uninvestible." The report alleged that Farmland Partners artificially
increased revenues "by making loans to related-party tenants who
round-trip the cash back to FPI as rent and interest revenue." The
Company also "significantly overpaid for properties" and "neglected to
disclose that the majority of its loans have been made to two members of
the management team."

On this news, the price of Farmland Partners common stock fell $3.37,
nearly 39%, to close at $5.28 on July 11, 2018, and the price of
Farmland Partners Series B preferred stock fell $6.42, or approximately
26%, to close at $18.15 on July 11, 2018.
