Bragar Eagel & Squire, P.C., a nationally recognized shareholder rights law firm, is investigating potential claims against Laboratory Corporation of America Holdings (NYSE: LH), Hollysys Automation Technologies Ltd. (NASDAQ: HOLI), and Cronos Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: CRON). Our investigations concern whether these companies have violated the federal securities laws andor engaged in other unlawful business practices.

Laboratory Corporation of America (NYSE: LH)

On January 1, 2022, an article from the New York Times called into question the accuracy of certain noninvasive prenatal tests, including that developed by Labcorp. The article alleges that positive results on tests are incorrect about 85% of the time. Patients who receive a positive result are supposed to pursue follow-up testing, which "can cost thousands of dollars, come with a small risk of miscarriage and can't be performed until later in pregnancy." The investigation highlights the statistical challenge of testing from things that are extremely rare. But, this isn't adequately explained to patients who were sold the tests. Companies that develop these tests use language like "highly accurate" and "total confidence," do not publish data on their tests' overall performance, or only stress data from tests that are more accurate.

On this news, Labcorp's stock fell over $16.00, or 5%, to close at $298.18 per share on January 3, 2022, injuring investors.

Cronos further stated that "[t]he Company concluded that it should have recorded an impairment charge of not less than $220 million on goodwill and indefinite-lived intangible assets in its U.S. reporting unit for the three and six months ended June 30, 2021. The Company will restate its unaudited interim financial statements for the three and six months ended June 30, 2021, accordingly." According to Cronos, the Company "is also evaluating whether to record an additional impairment in the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021."

On this news, Cronos's stock price fell $1.01 per share, or 15.05%, to close at $5.70 per share on November 9, 2021.
