On October 24, 2018, Align and management announced the Company’s 3Q 2018 earnings. They reported clear-aligner sales of $427.1 million, up 25% over the prior-year period but a sequential decline of 1.4%. This drop stemmed primarily from lower average selling prices (“ASPs”) in the U.S. and internationally. Align and management blamed the lower ASPs in part on promotional discounts.
This news drove the price of Align shares down as much as $87.71, or about 30%, during intraday trading on October 25, 2018.
“We’re focused on investors’ losses and on the extent to which management’s statements concerning competition, sales, and promotions were misleading,” said Hagens Berman partner Reed Kathrein.
