On February 29, 2016, Dentsply Intl. and Sirona Dental Systems, Inc. completed their merger to form Dentsply Sirona Inc.
On August 7, 2018, Dentsply Sirona announced its second quarter 2018 financial results, including a goodwill and intangible impairment charge of $1.265 billion.
Management also slashed adjusted EPS guidance for 2018 to the range of $2.00 to $2.15 per share, down from its previous estimate of $2.55 to $2.65 per share.
This news drove the price of Dentsply Sirona shares down as much as $9.03, or about 18.5%, to close at $39.41 on August 7, 2018.
More recently, the Company announced a restructuring plan and, reporting 3Q 2018 financial results, disclosed “Technology & Equipment revenues declined by 11.3% in the third quarter of 2018 as revenues were impacted by a significant amount of inventory destocking in the third quarter.”
“We’re focused on investors’ losses and whether management’s statements about the Company’s Technologies and Equipment segment and certain distributor relationships may have misled investors,” said Hagens Berman partner Reed Kathrein.
