According to the report, Ehrlich and his Delaware LLCs dumped shares in 11 transactions from February to March 2021. The largest sales were connected to a $50,000,000 secondary offering by Stifel Nicolaus in February 2021.

CNCB points out that Voyager's shares peaked just a week after Ehrlich finished sale on April 5, 2021. Three weeks later, the firm's shares plunged by 41% of their value.
