On August 8, 2022, BioNTech released its second quarter 2022 financial results, missing consensus estimates, which the Company attributed to the “dynamic” development of the pandemic, which the Company claimed caused a “re-phasing of orders” and led to fluctuations in quarterly revenues. On this news, BioNTech’s stock price fell $13.81, or 7.5%, to close at $169.30 per share on August 8, 20222, thereby injuring investors.

Then, on March 27, 2023, BioNTech released its fourth quarter and full year 2022 financial results, forecasting approximately €5 billion in COVID-19 vaccine revenues for 2023, significantly below estimates of over €8 billion. On this news, BioNTech’s stock price fell $4.60, or 3.6%, to close at $123.60 per share on March 27, 2023.

Then, on October 13, 2023, after the market had closed, Pfizer announced that, “due to lower-than-expected utilization for [its] COVID products,” the Company had recorded a non-cash charge of $5.5 billion related to inventory write-offs and other charges. The following trading day, October 16, 2023, BioNTech disclosed that it, too, would likely recognize up to €0.9 billion in inventory write-offs in the third quarter of 2023, and that “[a]ny such write-offs will reduce the revenues the Company would report for 2023.” On this news, BioNTech’s stock price fell $6.61, or 6.4%, to close at $96.97 per share on October 16, 2023.

Then, on November 16, 2023, BioNTech released its third quarter 2023 financial results, confirming that “[i]nventory write-downs by BioNTech’s collaboration partner Pfizer . . . [in connection with Comirnaty] reduced BioNTech’s revenues by €507.9 million and €615.4 million for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2023, respectively.”
