Investigation 

Bronstein, Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC is investigating potential claims on behalf of purchasers of Bioventus Inc. ("Bioventus" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: BVS). Investors who purchased Bioventus securities are encouraged to obtain additional information and assist the investigation.

 

The investigation concerns whether Bioventus violated federal securities laws.

 

On or around February 11, 2021, Bioventus conducted its initial public offering (“IPO”), selling 8 million shares of its Class A common stock at $13 per share.  Then, on November 16, 2022, Bioventus issued a press release announcing that it could not timely file its quarterly report for the period ended October 1, 2022 because it “requires additional time to complete a review . . . to assess whether a non-cash impairment charge is required for the third quarter of 2022”, which a preliminary review indicated to be “in the range of $185 million to $205 million.”  Bioventus further stated that it “is seeking resolution related to the validity of a revised invoice” regarding “rebate claims [that it received] from a large private payer in relation to our Pain Treatments vertical, which likely will adversely affect the Company’s previously announced third quarter 2022 financial results.”  As a result, Bioventus advised that “its internal controls related to the timely recognition of quarterly rebates were inadequate” and is “evaluating whether the Company will be able to meet all of its financial obligations as they come due within one year after the date its financial statements for the period ended October 1, 2022, are issued.”  On this news, Bioventus’s stock price fell $1.00 per share, or 33.67%, to close at $1.97 per share on November 17, 2022, representing a total decline of 84.85% from the IPO price.
