These products are aimed at improving outcomes for patients suffering from venous thromboembolism (VTE) and other vascular diseases and conditions. During the Class Period, Defendants consistently touted Inari’s record revenue, purportedly driven by the strength in our core VTE business. But Defendants failed to disclose that a significant portion of its expenses were used to compensate medical professionals improperly for using Inari’s products. In truth, while Defendants were speaking positively about the Company’s growth prospects, it had been engaging in illegal business practices.

Defendants also misled investors regarding business expenses in order to conceal their illicit conduct.
