A class action lawsuit has been filed on behalf of those who purchased or acquired Desktop Metal, Inc. (“Desktop Metal”) (NYSE: DM) securities between February 17, 2021 and November 15, 2021, inclusive (the “Class Period”).
Desktop Metal offers additive manufacturing technologies focused on the production of end use parts. Its platforms include: Production System, a manufacturing platform using Desktop Metal’s proprietary Single Pass Jetting technology enabling production quantities of up to millions of parts per year; Shop System, an affordable turnkey binding jetting platform to bring metal 3D printing to machine and job shops; Studio System, an office-friendly metal 3D printing system; and Fiber, a desktop 3D printer using Desktop Metal’s proprietary Micro Automated Fiber Placement. On February 16, 2021, Desktop Metal acquired EnvisionTEC, Inc. and certain of its affiliates (collectively, “EnvisionTEC”), a provider of volume production photopolymer 3D printing solutions for end use parts.
The Class Period commences on March 15, 202, when Desktop Metal filed its annual report on a Form 10-K for the period ended December 31, 2020.
The truth regarding EnvisionTEC began to emerge on November 8, 2021. After the market closed, Desktop Metal disclosed that it was conducting an internal investigation into certain matters, including “manufacturing and product compliance practices and procedures with respect to a subset of its photopolymer equipment and materials at its EnvisionTec US LLC facility.” The Form 8-K stated, “On November 4, 2021, the Audit Committee of the Board of Directors of Desktop Metal, Inc. . . . engaged a third party to conduct an independent internal investigation as a result of a whistleblower complaint relating to, among other matters, manufacturing and product compliance practices and procedures with respect to a subset of its photopolymer equipment and materials at its EnvisionTec US LLC facility in Dearborn, Michigan.” Also on November 8, 2021, Desktop Metal stated that defendant El-Siblani had resigned as Chief Executive Officer of EnvisionTec US LLC and as a director of Desktop Metal.
Following this news, Desktop Metal’s stock fell $0.39, or 4%, to close at $8.81 per share on November 9, 2021.
Then, on November 15, 2021, after the market closed, Desktop Metal stated that it would notify the U.S. Food and Drug Administration of “compliance issues with certain shipments of EnvisionTEC’s Flexcera dental resins and its PCA4000 curing box.”
Following this news, Desktop Metal’s stock fell $1.19, or 15%, to close at $6.83 per share on November 16, 2021
The complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, the defendants failed to disclose to investors that: (1) there were deficiencies in EnvisionTEC’s manufacturing and product compliance practices and procedures; (2) the foregoing deficiencies presented a material risk to the commercialization of EnvisionTEC’s products; and (3) as a result of the foregoing, the defendants’ positive statements about the company’s business, operations, and prospects were materially misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.
A lead plaintiff is a representative party that acts on behalf of other class members in directing the litigation. In order to be appointed lead plaintiff, the Court must determine that the class member’s claim is typical of the claims of other class members, and that the class member will adequately represent the class. Your ability to share in any recovery is not, however, affected by the decision whether or not to serve as a lead plaintiff. Filling out the online form above or communicating with any counsel is not necessary to participate or share in any recovery achieved in this case. Any member of the purported class may move the court to serve as a lead plaintiff through counsel of his/her choice, or may choose to do nothing and remain an inactive class member.
