The plaintiff alleges that the defendants allegedly failed to disclose deficiencies within the Company's 510(k) submission regarding the SurgiBot that undermined the likelihood that the SurgiBot would receive FDA clearance, which would leave the Company unable to commercialize the SurgiBot in 2016 and would impair the Company's ability to obtain approval for and commercialize its other robotic surgery platform in the United States and that as a result of these false statements and/or omissions, TransEnterix common stock traded at artificially inflated prices February 10, 2016 and May 10, 2016, reaching as high as $5.69 per share.

On April 20, 2016, TransEnterix Inc announced that the Food and Drug Administration ("FDA") notified TransEnterix Inc on April 19, 2016 of its determination that the "SurgiBot™ System does not meet the criteria for substantial equivalence based upon the data and information submitted by TransEnterix in its 510(k) submission.”

Then on May 20, 2016, TransEnterix Inc announced that it expected to have further discussion with the FDA, but currently believed that a new 510(k) submission would be required to obtain clearance, that it was reprioritizing its near-term regulatory efforts to focus on another submission, and that, as a result, it had taken actions to reduce headcount and investment related to the SurgiBot.
