According to the Complaint, during the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and misleading statements regarding the Company’s business, operations, and prospects. In particular, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and failed to disclose: that Illumina was experiencing a significant decline in sequencing instrument sales; that the decrease had a significant impact on the Company’s revenue; that the Company did not have visibility into trends that could have a consequence on the Company’s financial outcomes; that, as such, the Company’s revenue guidance was unreliable and exaggerated; and that, as a result of the above, Defendants’ positive statements about Illumina’s business, operations, and prospects, were false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.
On October 10, 2016 Illumina revealed its financial results for the third quarter of fiscal year 2016. The company had anticipated revenues of $625 to $630 million for the quarter. However, due to “declining demand for its high-speed genetic sequences” Illumina failed to meet this revenue.
When this information was released to the public, Illumina stock dropped on October 11, 2016, causing investors severe harm.
