Chembio is facing a class action lawsuit alleging that defendants engaged in a scheme to deceive the market and a course of conduct that artificially inflated Chembio’s stock price and operated as a fraud or deceit by misrepresenting the efficacy of the Company’s Dual Path Platform ("DPP") COVID-19 test. Defendants allegedly achieved this by making false statements about Chembio’s DPP COVID-19 test, although they knew or at least recklessly disregarded that there were material performance concerns with the test. When defendants’ prior misrepresentations were disclosed and became apparent to the market, the price of Chembio stock fell precipitously as the prior artificial inflation came out of Chembio’s stock price.
