TWERSKY LAW GROUP Notifies Baxter International, Inc. (BAX) Investors of Class Action

Twersky Law Group, a highly regarded and reputable law firm based in New York, wishes to inform investors about a significant development in the form of a class action lawsuit against Baxter International, Inc. (“Baxter” or “the Company) (NASDAQ: BAX) and certain officers of the company. This lawsuit has been filed on behalf of all individuals and entities that held, purchased, or otherwise acquired Seagate securities from May 25, 2022 through February 8, 2023 (the “Class Period”). Investors who acquired Baxter securities during this defined timeframe are strongly encouraged to participate in this case by contacting atara@twerskylawgroup.com. The deadline to file a motion for appointment of lead plaintiff is September 11, 2023.

The fundamental objective of this class action lawsuit is to recover for the benefit of investors who purchased Baxter securities during the Class Period, the losses they sustained as a consequence of the misleading statements made by Defendants in violation of the federal securities laws.

 

ALLEGATIONS AGAINST BAXTER INTERNATIONAL, INC.

The complaint alleges that during the specified Class Period, the defendants engaged in deceptive practices by making false and/or misleading statements or by failing to disclose crucial information. According to the complaint, one of the alleged deceptions involved Baxter International Inc.’s concealment of the true extent of supply chain problems while simultaneously exaggerating its ability to maintain a robust supply chain in the face of global pressures. The complaint further asserts that as a consequence of the defendants’ actions, the Company’s projected earnings were significantly misrepresented during the Class Period. This misleading projection of earnings potentially misled investors and caused them to make investment decisions based on inaccurate information. Moreover, it is claimed that the undisclosed supply chain issues, once revealed, were reasonably likely to have a substantial adverse impact on the Company’s financial condition. As a result, the complaint argues that the defendants’ public statements regarding Baxter International’s performance were materially false and misleading throughout the relevant period. The alleged misconduct outlined in the complaint had severe repercussions for the company’s shareholders. Over the Class Period, Baxter’s stock price purportedly declined by almost 50%, leading to a substantial loss of billions of dollars in market capitalization.
