SAN DIEGO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–$TDOC #TDOC–Shareholder rights law firm Robbins LLP is investigating Teladoc Health, Inc. (NYSE: TDOC) and its officers and directors to determine whether they breached their fiduciary duties or violated securities laws when the Company missed first quarter financial estimates due to a $6.6 billion non-cash goodwill impairment charge due to increased competition. Teladoc provides virtual healthcare services in the U.S. and internationally through Business-to-Business and Direct-to-Consumer distribution channels.

What is this Case About: According to the complaint, between October 28, 2021 and April 27, 2022, defendants touted itself as “the first and only company to provide a comprehensive and integrated whole person virtual healthcare solution that provides and enables care for a full spectrum of clinical conditions[.]” As recently as February 2022, Teladoc forecasted full year 2022 revenue of $2.55-$2.65 billion, and adjusted EBITDA of $330-$355 billion, on anticipated continued growth through its competitive advantages.
However, despite these projections, defendants failed to disclose that increased competition, among other factors, was negatively impacting Teladoc’s BetterHelp and chronic care businesses, and the growth of those businesses was less sustainable than defendants had led investors to believe. As a result, Teladoc’s revenue and adjusted EBITDA projections for full year 2022 were unrealistic.
On April 27, 2022, Teladoc announced its first quarter 2022 financial results, including revenue of $565.4 million, which missed consensus estimates by $3.23 million and “[n]et loss per share of $41.48, primarily driven by [a] non-cash goodwill impairment charge of $6.6 billion or $4.11 per share[.]” Additionally, the Company revised its full year 2022 revenue guidance to $2.4-$2.5 billion and adjusted EBITDA guidance to $240-$265 million “to reflect dynamics we are currently experiencing in the [D2C] mental health and chronic condition markets.” On this news, Teladoc’s stock price fell $22.48 per share, or over 40%, to close at $33.51 per share on April 28, 2022.
