Case Allegations:   The QuidelOrtho lawsuit alleges that Defendants made false and misleading statements, including that: (i) QuidelOrtho sold more COVID-19 tests to its distributors and pharmacy chain customers than could be resold to healthcare providers and end customers; (ii) excess inventories of COVID-19 tests existed throughout the supply chain; (iii) as a result of the above, QuidelOrtho’s distributors and pharmacy chain customers were poised to significantly reduce their COVID-19 test orders; and (iv) undisclosed problems created a heightened risk that the Savanna RVP4 Test would experience a delayed commercial launch in the United States.

As alleged in the lawsuit, on February 13, 2024, the Company announced its adjusted earnings per share as 46% below the midpoint of expectations and lowered its endemic COVID-19 revenue forecast from the range of $200-$400 million to $200 million. On this news, the price of QuidelOrtho common stock fell 32%, or $21.50, to close at $45.27 on February 14, 2024.

On February 21, 2024, the Board of Directors announced the dismissal of its President and Chief Executive Officer effective immediately, causing the price of QuidelOrtho common stock to decline $2.93, to close at $46.55 on February 22, 2024.

Then, on April 2, 2024, QuidelOrtho announced that it had withdrawn its U.S. Food and Drug Administration 510(k) submission for the Savanna RVP4 Test after recent data did not meet expectations. On this news, the price of QuidelOrtho stock dropped $4.85, or more than 10%, to close at $42.15 on April 2, 2024.
