CASE ALLEGATIONS: Sema4 is a health company that uses artificial intelligence to enable personalized medicine.
The Sema4 class action lawsuit alleges that defendants failed to disclose that: (i) there was a significant risk that Sema4 would reverse a material amount of previously recognized revenue that it could not recoup from third-party payors; (ii) Sema4 was experiencing declining selling prices for its reproductive health segment; and (iii) thus, Sema4’s financial results would be adversely affected.
On August 15, 2022, Sema4 announced changes to its research and development leadership team, including that Sema4’s founder, defendant Eric Schadt, was stepping down from his roles as President and Chief Research & Development Officer. Sema4 also disclosed that it was eliminating approximately 13% of its workforce as part of a series of restructuring and corporate realignments. During the related conference call, Sema4 further revealed that it had “reversed $30.1 million of revenue this quarter related to prior periods,” in connection with negotiations with “one of [Sema4’s] larger commercial payors regarding the potential recoupment of payments for Sema4 carrier screening services rendered from 2018 to early 2022.” On this news, Sema4’s stock price fell by more than 33%, damaging investors.
THE LEAD PLAINTIFF PROCESS: The Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 permits any investor who purchased or acquired Sema4 securities during the Class Period to seek appointment as lead plaintiff.
