On February 16, 2021, Longview completed its Merger with Butterfly.
Then on November 15, 2021, Butterfly released its third quarter 2021 financial results, revealing that the Company’s total gross margin for the quarter was negative 35% and that it expected its fiscal 2021 revenue to be as much as $20 million below its initial guidance of $76 to $80 million. Butterfly’s CEO blamed the disappointing financial results on “healthcare logistical challenges, and doctor, nurse, and medical technician fatigue concurrent with COVID conditions and it’s broad consequences.”
On this news, Butterfly’s stock fell $1.08, or 12.6%, to close at $7.52 per share on November 15, 2021, thereby injuring investors.
The complaint alleges that defendants throughout the Class Period made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) Butterfly had overstated its post-Merger business and financial prospects; (2) notwithstanding the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Butterfly’s financial projections failed to take into account the pandemic’s broad consequences, which included healthcare logistical challenges, and medical personnel fatigue; (3) accordingly, Butterfly’s gross margin levels and revenue projections were less sustainable than the Company had represented; (4) all the foregoing was reasonably likely to have a material negative impact on Butterfly’s business and financial condition; and (5) as a result of the foregoing, Defendants’ public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.
