The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements, as well as failed to disclose material adverse facts about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects. Specifically, Defendants made materially false and misleading statements regarding the Company’s business, operational and compliance policies both in connection with its IPO and in subsequent filings with the SEC. Specifically, defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (i) the Company’s manufacturing processes were flawed; (ii) that as a result of the flaws in the Company’s manufacturing process, a number of the Company’s knee replacement product systems were defective; and (iii) as a result of the foregoing, ConforMIS’s public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.
On August 31, 2015, pre-market, the Company announced that it had initiated a voluntary recall of specific serial numbers of patient-specific instrumentation for certain of its knee replacement product systems, in response to recent complaints of moisture on the patient-specific instrumentation. A total of approximately 950 patient-specific instrumentation sets were affected by ConforMIS’s recall. On this news, the Company’s stock dropped $3.78, or 19.11%, to close at $16.00 on August 31, 2015. At the close of trading on September 2, 2015, the Company’s share price closed at $14.18 per share.
