AxoGen Accused of Overstating Active Accounts and Backdating Revenue

According to the complaint, AxoGen held its SPOs in November 2017 and May 2018, and generated almost $150 million in gross proceeds based on misleading offering documents. On December 18, 2018, Seligman Investments published a report stating, among other things, that former employees allege channel stuffing and backdating of revenue, that the number of active accounts may be overstated by a factor of ten, that AxoGen’s “growth is driven by unsustainable, aggressive price increases,” and that the payments to physicians relative to revenue creates “elevated risks relating to pay-to-play and anti-kickback laws.” Since the truth emerged, AxoGen’s stock has declined almost 40%.
