The Cutera class action lawsuit alleges that defendants throughout the Class Period made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (i) Cutera overstated the sustainability of its revenue growth; (ii) there were significant conflicts among members of Cutera’s senior leadership and Board of Directors; and (iii) there were several material weaknesses in Cutera’s internal control of financial reporting.

Then, on February 28, 2023, Cutera disclosed that Cutera would not be able to timely file its annual financial report by the March 1, 2023 deadline. Cutera also disclosed that it identified material weaknesses in its internal control over financial reporting related to ineffective inventory count controls.
