On August 1, 2018, the Company disclosed that it faced certain challenges with the launch of INUVA, which had negatively impacted the Company’s second quarter 2018 financial results.
On this news, the Company’s share price fell $6.30, nearly 20%, to close at $26.05 per share on August 1, 2018, on unusually heavy trading volume.
Then, on May 6, 2019, the Company disclosed a first quarter 2019 loss of $10.8 million and lowered guidance for the remainder of 2019. The Company also reported that Earnhardt, the Company’s CEO of 11 years, resigned.
On this news, the Company’s share price fell $8.05, or more than 25%, to close at $25.10 per share on May 7, 2019, thereby injuring investors further.
The complaint filed in this class action alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and/or misleading statements, as well as failed to disclose material adverse facts about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects. Specifically, Defendants failed to disclose to investors: (1) that the Company lacked adequate reimbursement representatives to ensure physicians had access to SINUVA; (2) that, as a result, the Company’s sales force would focus on ensuring reimbursement; (3) that, as a result, the Company’s sales representatives were less focused on driving sales; (4) that physicians were less likely to adopt the Company’s SINUVA due to transaction costs associated with seeking reimbursement; (5) that the Company would increase staffing to address these issues; and (6) that, as a result of the foregoing, Defendants’ positive statements about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects were materially misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.
