Albany Molecular Research Is Investigated for Concealing Damage to Its Lab
Albany Molecular Research has been accused of concealing from shareholders that a weather-related power outage at its New Mexico laboratory had contaminated the laboratory’s inventory. Notably, the company’s Chief Executive Officer allegedly knew about the power outage because of the laboratory’s importance to the company’s core operations, but nonetheless failed to inform investors. Even though the outage occurred in July 2014, the truth was not revealed until November 5, 2014, when the company revealed that due to the power failure, it needed to discard tainted inventory and temporarily shut down the facility. On this news, Albany shares fell $6.08 per share, or 35%, to close at $16.59 per share on November 5, 2014.
