About the Lawsuit

Align Technology and certain of its senior executives are charged with issuing a series of materially false and misleading statements, during the Class Period, in violation of federal securities laws.

On October 18, 2012, shares of Align declined more than 20%, after the Company belatedly revealed it would take a substantial impairment charge, and after it revealed that third quarter 2012 financial results were well below guidance and after the Company lowered guidance for the fourth quarter of 2012. During the class period, Company insiders also sold more than 1.5 million shares of Align stock at artificially inflated prices to realize insider trading proceeds in excess of $52 million.
