CASE ALLEGATIONS: QuidelOrtho provides tests for the detection and diagnosis of various respiratory diseases and other medical conditions. 

The QuidelOrtho class action lawsuit alleges that defendants throughout the Class Period made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (i) QuidelOrtho sold more COVID-19 tests to its distributors and pharmacy chain customers than they could resell to healthcare providers and end customers; (ii) excess inventories of COVID-19 tests existed throughout the supply chain; (iii) as a result of the above, QuidelOrtho’s distributors and pharmacy chain customers were poised to significantly reduce their COVID-19 test orders; and (iv) undisclosed problems created a heightened risk that the Savanna RVP4 Test would experience a delayed commercial launch in the United States. 

The QuidelOrtho class action lawsuit further alleges that on February 13, 2024, QuidelOrtho announced its financial results for its fourth fiscal quarter and year ended December 31, 2023, revealing that its adjusted earnings-per-share was 46% below the midpoint of Wall Street analysts’ expectations, its adjusted EBITDA was 28% below analysts’ consensus of $271 million, and QuidelOrtho’s 2024 endemic COVID-19 revenue forecast was cut from the range of $200-$400 million to $200 million.  On this news, the price of QuidelOrtho stock fell more than 32%, according to the complaint.

Then, on April 2, 2024, the complaint further alleges that QuidelOrtho announced that it had withdrawn its U.S. Food and Drug Administration 510(k) submission for the Savanna RVP4 Test after recent data did not meet expectations.  On this news, the price of QuidelOrtho stock fell more than 10%, according to the complaint.

THE LEAD PLAINTIFF PROCESS: The Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 permits any investor who purchased or acquired QuidelOrtho common stock during the Class Period to seek appointment as lead plaintiff in the QuidelOrtho class action lawsuit.  A lead plaintiff is generally the movant with the greatest financial interest in the relief sought by the putative class who is also typical and adequate of the putative class.  A lead plaintiff acts on behalf of all other class members in directing the QuidelOrtho class action lawsuit.  The lead plaintiff can select a law firm of its choice to litigate the QuidelOrtho class action lawsuit.  An investor’s ability to share in any potential future recovery is not dependent upon serving as lead plaintiff of the QuidelOrtho class action lawsuit.
