About the Lawsuit
Patterson and certain of its executives are charged with failing to disclose material information during the Class Period, violating federal securities laws.
On February 12, 2018, the Federal Trade Commission disclosed that it had filed a complaint against the Company for violating antitrust regulations through a conspiracy with other dental supply companies to fix the prices of dental products and refuse to offer discounts or service to buying groups representing dental practitioners. Then, on March 1, 2018, the Company revealed dismal financial results for 2018Q3 and the departure of its Chief Financial Officer.
On this news, the price of Patterson's shares plummeted $7.48 per share, or 23% in one day.
