What is this Case About: According to the complaint filed against CareDx, between February 24, 2021 and May 5, 2022, defendants touted growing revenue and strong demand in the Company's testing services segment, calling it a "growth driver" for which "demand continued unabated." Defendants also emphasized the success of the Company's RemoTraC service – a remote, home-based, blood-drawing service that the Company launched in response to the COVID-19 pandemic – which gave the Company the ability to "drive margins" for testing services.

However, throughout the class period, defendants had engaged in a variety of improper and illegal schemes to inflate testing services revenue, including: (i) pushing protocols for surveillance of organ rejection through inaccurate marketing materials and in violation of Medicare standards; (ii) offering extravagant inducements or kickbacks to physicians and other providers; and (iii) improperly bundling expensive testing services with other blood tests as part of the RemoTraC service.

On October 28, 2021, CareDx filed its quarterly report for the third quarter of 2021 with the SEC, revealing for the first time it was the subject of at least three government investigations, including by the Department of Justice, SEC, and an unnamed state regulatory agency. In response to this disclosure, the Company's share price fell more than 27%, to close at $51.00 per share on October 29, 2021.

Then, on April 15, 2022, the Company’s former Head of Community Nephrology filed a complaint in California Superior Court that provided extensive detail about: (1) defendants’ misconduct, including the use of RemoTraC to improperly bundle the Company’s most expensive testing services, including AlloSure, with other blood tests, that led to the government investigations; (2) defendants’ knowledge of the misconduct throughout the class period; and (3) their attempts to conceal the misconduct. In response to these revelations, the price of CareDx stock fell an additional 8% to close trading the next trading day, April 18, 2022, at $32.55 per share.

Investors further learned the impact of Defendants’ misconduct and the resulting government investigations on CareDx’s business prospects after the markets closed on May 5, 2022. In connection with the announcement of the Company’s results for the first quarter of 2022, defendants reported testing service revenue that fell well short of analysts’ expectations, and yet another decline in average sales price in which the Company’s average price declined by approximately 4.9% versus the last quarter of 2021, or what one analyst described as “another big deterioration in price.” In response to these disclosures, the price of CareDx stock declined another 18.5% the following trading day, from a closing price of $31.66 per share on May 5, 2022, to a closing price of $25.87 per share on May 6, 2022.
