DECISION DIAGNOSTICS CORP (US TRADING VENUE: DECN)
According to the Complaint, Decision Diagnostics Corp. purportedly offers, among other products and services, prescription and non-prescription diagnostics and home testing products. From March 2020 to at least June 2020, Defendants claimed that the Company had developed a finger-prick blood test that could detect COVID-19 in less than one minute. Defendants also made various representations regarding the Company’s progress towards achieving U.S. Food and Drug Administration emergency use authorization (“EUA”) for this purported COVID-19 finger-prick blood test.
The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and misleading statements, and failed to disclose material adverse facts about the Company’s business, operational, and compliance policies. Specifically, the Complaint alleges Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and failed to disclose to investors that: (i) Decision Diagnostics had not developed any viable COVID-19 test, much less a test that could detect COVID-19 in less than one minute; (ii) the Company could not meet the FDA’s EUA testing requirements for its purported COVID-19 test; (iii) accordingly, Defendants had misrepresented the timeline within which it could realistically bring its COVID-19 test to market; (iv) all the foregoing subjected Defendants to an increased risk of regulatory oversight and enforcement; and (v) as a result, Defendants’ public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.
