Scott+Scott is investigating whether members of Axogen’s Board of Directors (the “Board”) made, or caused Axogen to make, false and/or misleading statements, as well as failed to disclose material adverse facts, about Axogen’s business, operations, prospects, and financial health. Specifically, Scott+Scott is investigating whether the Board failed to disclose material information, including whether: (1) Axogen increased prices to mask lower sales; (2) Axogen’s pricing alienated customers and threatened Axogen’s growth; (3) ambulatory surgery centers form a significant part of Axogen’s product market; (4) such centers were especially sensitive to price increases; (5) Axogen depended on a small number of surgeons paid to generate sales; (6) Axogen’s inventory model could reasonably lead to channel stuffing; (7) Axogen incentivized sales representatives to encourage channel stuffing; (8) Axogen encouraged sales representatives to backdate revenue, artificially inflating metrics; (9) Axogen lacked adequate internal controls to prevent these problems; (10) Axogen’s key operating metrics were overstated; and (11) as a result, defendants’ positive statements about Axogen’s business, operations, and prospects were materially misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.
On December 18, 2018, Seligman Investments reported allegations of channel stuffing and backdating of revenue, possible overstatement of active accounts, unsustainable growth, and “risks relating to pay-to-play and anti-kickback laws.” On this news, Axogen’s share price declined almost 31% over three days.
