Then, on September 22, 2023, after trading hours, the Company disclosed that certain financial statements could no longer be relied upon “as a result of apparent errors primarily related to revenue recognition associated with bill and hold transactions that were identified in the course a review by the Audit Committee[.]” The Company disclosed there were “numerous instances where bill and hold transactions did not appear to meet the requirements for revenue recognition under GAAP.” Then, on September 28, 2023, the Company announced it had filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy.

Specifically, Defendants failed to disclose to investors: (1) that the Company had engaged in “bill and hold transactions” with customers; (2) that these transactions were not reported pursuant to generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”); (3) that, “as a result of apparent errors primarily related to revenue recognition associated with bill and hold transactions” the Company lacked a reasonable basis to report certain financial results and was reasonably likely to restate its financial statements; and (4) that, as a result of the foregoing, Defendants’ positive statements about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects were materially misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.
