The Klein Law Firm announces that a class action complaint has been filed on behalf of shareholders of Progenity, Inc. (NASDAQ: PROG) who purchased shares between June 19, 2020 and January 1, 3000. The action, which was filed in the United States District Court for the Southern District of California, alleges that the Company violated federal securities laws.
In particular, the Progenity lawsuit alleges that (i) that Progenity had overbilled government payors by $10.3 million in 2019 and early 2020 and, thus, had materially overstated its revenues, earnings and cash flows from operations for the historical financial periods provided in the registration statement; (ii) that Progenity would need to refund this overpayment in the second quarter of 2020 (the same quarter in which the initial public offering was conducted), adversely impacting its quarterly results; and (iii) that Progenity was suffering from accelerating negative trends in the second quarter of 2020 with respect to the Company’s testing volumes, revenues and product pricing.
Shareholders have until October 27, 2020 to petition the court for lead plaintiff status. Your ability to share in any recovery does not require that you serve as lead plaintiff. You may choose to be an absent class member.
