The filed Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that:

  • AxoGen aggressively increased prices to mask lower sales;

     

  • AxoGen’s pricing alienated customers and threatened the Company’s future growth;

     

  • ambulatory surgery centers form a significant part of the market for the Company’s products;

     

  • such centers were especially sensitive to price increases;

     

  • the Company was dependent on a small number of surgeons whom the Company paid to generate sales;

     

  • AxoGen’s consignment model for inventory was reasonably likely to lead to channel stuffing;

     

  • the Company offered purchase incentives to sales representatives to encourage channel stuffing;

     

  • the Company’s sales representatives were encouraged to backdate revenue to artificially inflate metrics;

 

  • the Company lacked adequate internal controls to prevent such channel stuffing and backdating of revenue;

     

  • the Company’s key operating metrics, such as number of active accounts, were overstated; and

     

  • consequently, Defendants’ positive statements about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects, were materially misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.
  • On December 18, 2018, Seligman Investments reported that “[a] number of former [AxoGen] employees allege channel stuffing [at AxoGen], given that the company’s consignment model creates potential for abuse, as well as alleging questionable revenue recognition practices.” The article continued to state that “allegations additionally include misleading operating metrics, with one former rep implying that the company’s definition of ‘active accounts’ may overstate the actual number by a factor of ten.”

    Following this news, AxoGen stock dropped $6.17 per share, or roughly 22%, to close at $21.36 on December 18, 2018.
