About the Lawsuit
Owlet and certain of its executives are charged with failing to disclose material information during the Class Period, violating federal securities laws.
On October 4, 2021, the Company disclosed the receipt of a warning letter from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) stating that “the Company’s marketing of its Owlet Smart Sock product . . . renders [it] a medical device requiring premarket clearance or approval from FDA,” which requirement the Company had not obtained, and also requesting that “the Company cease commercial distribution of the Smart Sock for uses in measuring blood oxygen saturation and pulse rate where such metrics are intended to identify or diagnose desaturation and bradycardia using an alarm functionality to notify users that measurements are outside of preset values.”
On this news, shares of Owlet fell $1.29, or 23%, to close at $4.19 per share on October 4, 2021, on unusually heavy trading volume.
The case is Butala v. Owlet, Inc. f/k/a Sandbridge Acquisition Corporation, 21-cv-09016.
