According to the Complaint, the Company made false and misleading statements to the market. STAAR is the subject of a report by investment analyst J Capital titled, "STARR Surgical, Less Than Meets the Eye." The report alleges that the Company has overstated its sales in China by at least one-third, "meaning all of the Company's $14 mln in 2019 profit is fake." The report, based on extensive interviews and research, states that the Company reports fake sales numbers and then marks up marketing costs in a scheme to hide "phantom" revenue. Based on this news, shares of STAAR fell by 6% on August 11, 2020, damaging investors.
