Desktop purports to offer additive manufacturing technologies focused on the production of end use parts. The Company’s platforms include: Production System, a manufacturing platform using the Company’s proprietary Single Pass Jetting technology enabling production quantities of up to millions of parts per year; Shop System, an affordable turnkey binding jetting platform to bring metal 3D printing to machine and job shops; Studio System, an office-friendly metal 3D printing system; and Fiber, a desktop 3D printer using the Company’s proprietary Micro Automated Fiber Placement.
On February 16, 2021, the Company acquired EnvisionTEC, Inc. and certain of its affiliates (collectively, “EnvisionTEC”), a provider of volume production photopolymer 3D printing solutions for end use parts.
According to the complaint, 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 that: (i) there were deficiencies in EnvisionTEC’s manufacturing and product compliance practices and procedures; (ii) the foregoing deficiencies presented a material risk to the commercialization of EnvisionTEC’s products; and (iii) 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.
On November 8, 2021, after the market closed, Desktop disclosed that it was conducting an internal investigation into certain matters, including “manufacturing and product compliance practices and procedures with respect to a subset of its photopolymer equipment and materials at its EnvisionTec US LLC facility.” The Company also stated that the Chief Executive Officer of EnvisionTec US LLC had resigned.
On this news, the Company’s stock fell $0.39, or 4%, to close at $8.81 per share on November 9, 2021.
Then, on November 15, 2021, after the market closed, the Company stated that it would notify the U.S. Food and Drug Administration FDA of “compliance issues with certain shipments of EnvisionTEC’s Flexcera dental resins and its PCA4000 curing box.”
On this news, the Company’s stock fell $1.19, or 15%, to close at $6.83 per share on November 16, 2021, on unusually heavy trading volume.
