New York, New York--(Newsfile Corp. - January 26, 2021) - Pomerantz LLP is investigating claims on behalf of investors of OrthoPediatrics Corporation ("OrthoPediatrics" or the "Company")(NASDAQ: KIDS). Such investors are advised to contact Robert S. Willoughby at email@example.com or 888-476-6529, ext. 7980.
The investigation concerns whether OrthoPediatrics and certain of its officers and/or directors have engaged in securities fraud or other unlawful business practices.
On December 2, 2020, Culper Research ("Culper") published a report entitled "OrthoPediatrics Corp. (KIDS): Even Channel Stuffing Can't Save This Company". The Culper report described OrthoPediatrics as having "engaged in a channel stuffing scheme that has systematically and significantly overstated revenues." Among other issues, the Culper report alleged that "the Company has abused its ability to book revenues upon shipment by selling and shipping excess product directly to its distributors, many of whom are exclusive to the Company" and described it as "concerning that many of the Company's 'exclusive distributors' are simply former OrthoPediatrics employees who have formed their own distributorships, often while still employed at the Company."
On this news, OrthoPediatrics' stock price fell $4.12 per share, or 9.13%, to close at $41.02 per share on December 2, 2020.
Then, on December 31, 2020, OrthoPediatrics announced that the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission had commenced a review of the Company on December 15, 2020. Finally, on January 13, 2021, Culper published a letter addressed to Deloitte & Touche, OrthoPediatrics' auditor, stating, in part: "[w]e believe OrthoPediatrics has failed to record proper inventory write-downs and/or establish reserves for product obsolescence."
On this news, OrthoPediatrics' stock price fell $2.08 per share, or 4.82%, to close at $41.05 per share on January 13, 2021.
