On November 15, 2021, Waldencast issued a press release announcing entry into a business “into definitive simultaneous business combination agreements with leading science-based, results-driven skin care brand Obagi and award-winning makeup and skin care brand Milk Makeup.”
Then, on July 5, 2023, Waldencast announced that certain of Obagi’s financial statements for periods prior to the merger transaction “should no longer be relied upon.” The financial statements containing errors and requiring restatement included those for 2021 and for the first quarter of 2022 and were included within Waldencast’s registration and proxy statement soliciting stockholder approval of the merger.
On this news, Waldencast’s stock price fell $0.76 per share, or 10.2%, to close at $6.63 per share on July 6, 2023.
