Sema4 is a health company that uses artificial intelligence to enable personalized medicine. The Company's platform leverages longitudinal patient data, AI-driven predictive modeling, and genomics in combination with other data to deliver better outcomes for patients. Sema4 derives the majority of its revenue from Women's Health and Oncology diagnostic solutions.

The filed complaint alleges that Defendants made materially false and misleading statements throughout the Class Period. Specifically, Plaintiff alleges that Defendants failed to disclose:

  • that there was a significant risk that Sema4 would reverse a material amount of previously recognized revenue that it could not recoup from third party payors;

  • that the Company was experiencing declining selling prices for its reproductive health segment; and

  • that, as a result of the foregoing, Sema4's financial results would be adversely affected.

On August 15, 2022, after the market closed, Sema4 announced changes to its research and development leadership team, including that Defendant Eric Schadt was stepping down from his roles as President and Chief R&D Officer. The Company also disclosed that it was eliminating approximately 13% of its workforce as part of a series of restructuring and corporate realignments.

During a conference call, Sema4 revealed that it had "reversed $30.1 million of revenue this quarter related to prior periods" in connection with negotiations with "one of [Sema4's] larger commercial payors regarding the potential recoupment of payments for Sema4 carrier screening services rendered from 2018 to early 2022."

On this news, Sema4's stock fell $0.80, or 33.3%, to close at $1.60 per share on August 16, 2022.
