Inotiv Accused of Misleading Shareholders
Inotiv purports to be a contract research organization which provides nonclinical and analytical drug discovery and development services and research models and related products and services. On November 5, 2021, Inotiv completed its acquisition of Envigo RMS, LLC (“Envigo”) which is now a direct, wholly owned subsidiary of Inotiv.
The Inotiv class action lawsuit alleges that, throughout the Class Period, defendants made false and misleading statements and failed to disclose that: (i) Envigo and Inotiv’s Cumberland, Virginia facility engaged in widespread and flagrant violations of the Animal Welfare Act of 1966 (“AWA”); (ii) Envigo and Inotiv’s Cumberland facility continuously violated the AWA; (iii) Envigo and Inotiv did not properly remedy issues with regards to animal welfare at the Cumberland facility; (iv) as a result, Inotiv was likely to face increased scrutiny and governmental action; (v) Inotiv would imminently shut down two facilities, including the Cumberland facility; (vi) Inotiv did not engage in proper due diligence; and (vii) as a result, defendants’ statements about its business, operations, and prospects, were materially false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis at all relevant times.
On May 20, 2022, Inotiv announced the search and seizure at its Cumberland facility and the filing of a United States Department of Justice complaint “alleging violations of the Animal Welfare Act at the Cumberland, Virginia facility.” The following day, on May 21, 2022, Judge Moon of the United States District Court for the Western District of Virginia issued a temporary restraining order which stated the following pertinent details regarding the Cumberland facility: “Over 300 beagle puppies have died onsite due to ‘unknown causes’ over seven months;” “[n]ursing female beagles were denied food, and so they (and their litters) were unable to get adequate nutrition;” “[o]ver an eight-week period, 25 beagle puppies died from cold exposure;” “[p]erhaps the most heinous discovery of the November 2021 inspection was that Envigo had allowed staff to euthanize dogs without anesthesia, in violation of the facility’s own program of care;” and “[t]he Government contends that Envigo has consistently failed, despite repeated warnings and opportunities for correction, to meet its obligations under AWA’s implementing regulations to provide adequate veterinary care . . . [b]ased on the overwhelming evidence produced by the Government, the Court agrees.” On this news, Inotiv’s share price fell by approximately 28%.
Then, on June 13, 2022, Inotiv announced the closing of two Envigo facilities – the purpose-bred canine facility in Cumberland and a rodent breeding facility in Dublin – mere months after the acquisition. On this news, Inotiv’s share price fell an additional 2%, further damaging investors who suffered losses in Inotiv stock.
