On February 13, 2024, QuidelOrtho reported underwhelming results for its fourth quarter ended December 31, 2023. Among other things, the Company's Adjusted Earnings Per Share was 46% below the midpoint of Wall Street analysts' expectations. This miss was largely attributed to lower endemic COVID-19 revenues during the quarter due to distributor destocking. The Company also slashed its 2024 financial forecasts, including a drastic cut to its COVID-19 revenue guidance. Specifically, QuidelOrtho lowered its annual endemic COVID-19 revenue forecast from the range of $200-$400 million to $200 million. On this news, QuidelOrtho's stock price fell $21.50 per share, or 32.2%, to close at $45.27 per share on February 14, 2024. 

On February 21, 2024, QuidelOrtho announced that its Board of Directors had terminated Douglas Bryant from his positions as President and Chief Executive Officer ("CEO") of the Company. Bryant also resigned from the Company's Board, effective February 21, 2024. Then, on April 2, 2024, QuidelOrtho announced that it had withdrawn its FDA 510(k) submission for approval to sell the Savanna RVP4 Test in the United States after recent data did not meet expectations. According to a Citi analyst, the Savanna RVP4 Test was "expected to be a key driver of Savanna uptake in the respiratory season." 

On this news, QuidelOrtho's stock price fell $4.85, per share, or 10.32%, to close at $42.15 per share on April 2, 2024
