According to the Complaint, AeroVironment designs, develops, produces, delivers, and supports a portfolio of robotic systems and related services for government agencies and businesses in the United States and internationally.  The Company supplies unmanned aircraft systems, tactical missile systems, unmanned ground vehicles and related services primarily to organizations within the U.S. Department of Defense and to international allied governments.

Defendants provided investors with material information concerning AeroVironment’s expected revenue for the fiscal year 2022.  Defendants’ statements included, among other things, AeroVironment’s strategic acquisitions which expanded their portfolio to include six product lines, thereby supporting Defendants’ decision to forecast revenue of $560 million to $580 million for the fiscal year 2022 and increase its earnings-per-share estimates to between $2.50 per share and $2.70 per share.

On December 7, 2021, AeroVironment issued a press release announcing its second quarter earnings.  In pertinent part, Defendants announced they were reducing their guidance for fiscal 2022 from $560 and $580 million down to $440 and $460 million due allegedly to supply chain constraints due to COVID-19, extended procurement cycles, and staffing shortages.

On this news, AeroVironment’s common stock fell $21.97 per share, or approximately 27.4%, to $57.98 per share on December 7, 2021.
