According to the Complaint, the 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 Eargo had improperly sought reimbursements from certain third-party payors; (2) that the foregoing was reasonably likely to lead to regulatory scrutiny; (3) that because the reimbursements at issue involved the Company’s largest third-party payor, Eargo’s financial statements would be adversely impact; and (4) as a result, Defendants’ statements about its business, operations, and prospects were materially false and misleading and/or lacked reasonable basis at all relevant times.
On August 12, 2021, while reporting its Q2 2021 financial results, Eargo revealed that its largest third-party payor was conducting a claims audit and had not paid the Company since March 1, 2021.
On this news, the price of Eargo shares fell $8.00 per share to close at $24.70 per share on August 13, 2021, thereby injuring investors.
