The lawsuit has been filed in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York on behalf of all those who purchased Chembio common stock between April 1, 2020 and June 16, 2020 (the "Class Period"). The case, Chernysh v. Chembio Diagnostics, Inc. et al., No. 20-cv-02706 was filed on June 18, 2020.
The lawsuit focuses on whether the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws. Throughout the Class Period, Defendants represented that its DPP COVID-19 serological POC test for the detection of IgM and IgG antibodies aided in determining current or past exposure to the COVID-19 virus, that its test provides high sensitivity and specificity, and was 100% accurate.
On June 16, 2020, after the market closed, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration ("FDA") issued a press release disclosing that it had revoked the Company’s Emergency Use Authorization ("EUA") for the Company’s DPP COVID-19 Igm/IgG System "due to performance concerns with the accuracy of the test" and because "data submitted by Chembio as well as an independent evaluation of the Chembio test at NCI showed that this test generates a higher than expected rate of false results and higher than that reflected in the authorized labeling for the device."
On this news, Chembio's share price fell from $9.93 per share on June 16, 2020 to a closing price of $3.89 on June 17, 2020: a $6.04 or a 60.83% drop.
