According to the Complaint, the Company made false and misleading statements to the market. Baxter engaged in intra-Company transactions designed to generate gains from foreign exchanges that did not follow GAAP principles and were undertaken when the foreign exchange rates were already known. The Company failed to maintain effective controls on financial reporting. Based on the Company’s internal investigation of these matters, it was not capable of filing a Form 10-Q quarterly report for the period ending September 30, 2019. Based on these facts, the Company’s public statements were false and materially misleading throughout the class period. When the market learned the truth about Baxter, investors suffered damages.
Join the case to recover your losses.
