About the Lawsuits
Eargo and certain of its executives are charged with failing to disclose material information during the Class Period and/or in the Registration Statement and Prospectus issued in conjunction with the initial public offering, violating federal securities laws.
On August 12, 2021, post-market, the Company disclosed that the Company’s largest third-party payer, which accounted for 80% of its accounts receivables and was “basically administrating on behalf of the federal government,” had not paid on submitted claims since March 1, 2021. On this news, the Company’s share price fell $8.00, or over 24%, to close at $24.70 per share on August 13, 2021, on unusually heavy trading volume.
Then, on September 22, 2021, post-market, the Company disclosed that “it is the target of a criminal investigation by the U.S. Department of Justice related to insurance reimbursement claims the Company has submitted on behalf of customers covered by federal employee health plans,” and as a result was withdrawing its financial guidance for the fiscal year ending Dec. 31.
On this news, the Company’s share price plummeted $14.81, or over 68%, to close at $6.86 per share on September 23, 2021, on unusually heavy trading volume.
The first-filed case is Fazio v. Eargo, Inc., et al., 21-cv-7848. A subsequently filed case, IBEW Local 353 Pension Plan v. Eargo, Inc., 21-cv-8747, expanded the class period.
