Fulgent Genetics, Inc. (NASDAQ:FLGT) Securities Fraud Class Action:
The litigation focuses on Fulgent's previously claimed "very strong" and "truly outstanding" financial results.
The complaint alleges Defendants made materially false and misleading statements and failed to disclose that: (1) Fulgent had been conducting medically unnecessary laboratory testing, engaging improper billing practices related to laboratory testing, and providing or receiving compensation in violation of the Anti-Kickback statute and Stark Law; (2) accordingly, Fulgent was likely to become subject to enhanced legal and regulatory scrutiny; and, (3) Fulgent's revenues, to the extent they were derived from unlawful conduct, were unsustainable.
According to the complaint, investors learned the truth on Aug. 4, 2022, when Fulgent announced its Q2 2022 financial results and startled investors with its additional disclosure that the SEC was investigating the company's 2018 - Q1 2020 financial reports and the DOJ was investigating allegations of medically unnecessary laboratory testing, improper billing for laboratory testing, and compensation received or provided in violation of federal and California law.
This news sent the price of Fulgent shares crashing more than 17% lower during the next 2 trading days, wiping out over $300 million of shareholder value.
"We're focused on investors' losses and proving Fulgent lied about the legality of its reported revenues and about its growth prospects," said Reed Kathrein, the Hagens Berman partner leading the investigation.
