The complaint alleges that the Company made false/misleading statements and/or failed to disclose material information related to the Company's projected sales, financial prospects, and adoption of the Company's SAPIEN transcatheter aortic heart valve. In particular, it is alleged that the Company knew but concealed that: a) due to physicians' concerns over the risks and complexity of the procedure for implanting SAPIEN, adoption of SAPIEN was weaker than the Company claimed; b) the Company's outlook for sales and earnings per share was significantly weaker than suggested to investors; and c) as a result of the aforementioned, the Company lacked a reasonable basis for its statements relating to the Company's operations, forecasts, and outlook.
