CASE ALLEGATIONS: Illumina is a genetic and genomic analysis company with a portfolio of integrated sequencing and microarray systems, consumables, and analysis tools designed to accelerate and simplify genetic analysis. According to the Illumina class action lawsuit, in September 2020, Illumina announced plans to reacquire developer of blood-based cancer detection tests, GRAIL, Inc. and the acquisition was completed on August 18, 2022 over the objection of the European Union’s European commission. Carl C. Icahn was the beneficial owner of approximately 1.4% of the outstanding shares of Illumina, the complaint alleges.
The Illumina class action lawsuit alleges that defendants throughout the Class Period made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (i) certain of Illumina’s insiders had personal financial motives for acquiring GRAIL; and (ii) contrary to Illumina’s attempts to discount Icahn’s criticism, Icahn had accurately concluded that insiders’ interests did not align with Illumina’s best interests.
The Illumina class action lawsuit further alleges that on August 10, 2023, Illumina revealed that the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission was investigating Illumina’s statements regarding GRAIL, including “conduct and compensation of certain members of Illumina and GRAIL management.” The Illumina class action lawsuit alleges that on this news, the price of Illumina stock fell.
The Illumina class action lawsuit also alleges that on October 17, 2023, Icahn filed a complaint against current and former directors of Illumina, alleging direct and derivative claims of breaches of fiduciary duty. According to Reuters, Icahn “told the 13D Monitor Active-Passive Investor Summit in New York on Tuesday that the lawsuit pertained to Illumina completing its acquisition of cancer diagnostic test maker [GRAIL],” the complaint alleges. The Illumina class action lawsuit alleges that on this news, the price of Illumina stock fell more than 5%.
