About the Lawsuit
Becton and certain of its executives are charged with failing to disclose material information during the Class Period, violating federal securities laws.
On February 6, 2020, the Company disclosed a cut to its fiscal 2020 guidance with revenue expected to increase by only 1.5% to 2.5% “to reflect the impact of the remediation effort and anticipated loss of sales of the Alaris infusion system”; that the software remediation plan for the Alaris system “will require additional regulatory filings”; that existing customers would have “access to the Alaris System under medical necessity”; and that it had recorded a $59 million charge in connection with a voluntary recall of certain Alaris pumps.
On this news, the price of Becton’s shares plummeted.
The case is Stephen Kabak, as Trustee of the Stephen Kabak & Joy Schary Living Trust , et al. v. Becton, Dickinson and Company, 20-cv-02155.
