The complaint filed in this class action alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants failed to disclose to investors: (1) Carbonite’s Server Backup VM Edition was of poor quality and technologically flawed; (2) Carbonite was receiving poor reviews and complaints from customers about the Server Backup VM Edition; and (3) the poor quality and technological flaws of the Server Backup VM Edition were acting as a “disruptive” factor throughout the Carbonite salesforce and keeping that sales organization from closing opportunistically on several larger deals during fiscal 2019; and (4) that, as a result, defendants’ public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.

Venator Materials plc (NYSE: VNTR)

Class Period: March 2, 2015 – May 2, 2018
Lead Plaintiff Deadline: September 30, 2019

Shareholders with $500,000 in losses or more are encouraged to contact the firm

The complaint filed in this class action alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants failed to disclose to investors:  (1) that the radio frequency identification inventory tracking technology and advanced supply chain solutions that Defendants told investors the Company would to use to improve Cordis Corp.’s performance were never implemented across Cordis; (2) that Cordis’s existing global supply chain and inventory control systems were antiquated and ineffective, which were causing operational and inventory problems at Cordis; (3) that Cordis’s inventory and supply chain platforms were so deficient that the Company lacked visibility into customer demand and existing inventory levels, particularly with respect to products consigned to third-party vendors overseas; (4) that, as a result, Cordis manufactured and accumulated excessive amounts of cardiovascular product inventories, which sat on the shelf and became unsellable and/or expired; (5) that the Company failed to establish reserves, write off expired products, and subtract that inventory from the Company’s assets on its balance sheets; (6) that, as a result, the Company materially overstated Cordis’s inventory balances; (7) that, contrary to Defendants’ representations, Cordis was not “performing well” and its integration was not “on track,” “going incredibly well” or “largely on plan"; (8) that the Company struggled separating the Cordis business from J&J due to operational, manufacturing, and personnel deficiencies; and (9) that, to correct Cordis’s deficiencies, the Company would have to make substantial investments in Cordis’s IT and supporting infrastructure, thereby incurring significant Selling, General and Administrative Expenses charges beyond the levels internally budgeted or projected by Cardinal and diminishing operating earnings.
