Welcome to the In re Illumina, Inc. Securities Litigation Settlement Website

The information contained on this website is only a summary of the information presented in more detail in the Notice of Pendency and Proposed Settlement of Class Action. Because this website is just a summary, you should review the Notice for additional details.

Summary of the Action and Settlement

The Settlement resolves class action litigation over whether Illumina, and certain Illumina executives, made materially false or misleading statements or omissions to investors concerning, among other things, Illumina’s July 26, 2016 earnings guidance, which projected that the Company would earn revenue of between $625 million and $630 million in the third quarter of 2016 and projected approximately 12% revenue growth and non-GAAP earnings per diluted share of $3.48 to $3.58 for the fiscal year 2016. 

Subject to Court approval, a Settlement fund of $13,850,000 total in cash will be established pursuant to the Settlement. The Net Settlement Fund (the Settlement Fund less court-awarded attorneys’ fees and expenses, Notice and Administration Expenses, any required Taxes or Tax Estimates payments, and any other fees or expenses approved by the Court) will be distributed in accordance with a proposed plan of allocation (the “Plan of Allocation”) that will be approved by the Court and will determine how the Net Settlement Fund shall be allocated to Class Members. The Plan of Allocation begins on page 8 of the Notice.

The Settlement Class consists of:

all persons or entities who purchased or otherwise acquired a legal or beneficial ownership interest in Illumina’s common stock between July 26, 2016 through October 10, 2016, inclusive.
