September 6, 2018 – Kaplan Fox & Kilsheimer LLP (www.kaplanfox.com) is investigating claims on behalf of investors of Nevro Corporation (“Nevro” or the “Company”) (NYSE: NVRO).  Investors who purchased Nevro common stock between January 8, 2018 and July 12, 2018 (the “Class Period”) may be affected.  A complaint has been filed in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California against Nevro and certain executives on behalf of investors that acquired Nevro common stock during the Class Period.

On April 27, 2017, reports emerged that Boston Scientific Corp. (“Boston Scientific”) had filed an action against Nevro, asserting claims of patent infringement, theft of trade secrets, and tortious interference with contract, alleging that as early as 2009 Nevro recruited and hired dozens of former Boston Scientific employees, and then stole Boston Scientific’s confidential, proprietary trade secrets to develop Nevro’s Senza 1 and Senza II systems.

On May 7, 2018 after the market closed, Nevro reported first-quarter 2018 financial results that fell significantly short of estimates.  According to the complaint, the Company attributed the results to a 31% increase in quarterly operating expenses, driven primarily by legal expenses associated with Nevro’s patent infringement litigation with Boston Scientific. 

Following this news, Nevro’s stock price fell $14.67 per share, or 15.9%, to close at $77.59 per share on May 8, 2018.

According to the complaint, on July 10, 2018 multiple analysts reported on a tentative ruling in the patent infringement litigation, invalidating at least five of the patents related to Nevro’s HF10 therapy and Senza systems.

Following this news, Nevro’s stock price fell $11.43 per share, or 15.15% to close at $64.04 per share on July 10, 2018.
