According to the complaint, during the class period Defendants misled investors about the adequacy of the Company's internal control over financial reporting.
After the market closed on February 27, 2019, Defendants announced (1) the Company would not timely file its Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2018, and (2) the SEC notified the Company that it has commenced an investigation into the Company's revenue accounting policies, internal controls and related matters.
This news drove the price of Syneos shares down as much as $10.24, or down almost 20%, to close at $41.77 on February 28, 2019.
"We're focused on investors' losses and whether Syneos and senior management may have improperly recognized revenue," said Hagens Berman partner Reed Kathrein.
