: Moderna CFO out after two days in the role as former employer Dentsply discloses probe of financial reporting


- Advertisment -

Moderna Inc. surprised investors Wednesday with the news that its chief financial officer has departed the company just two days after taking up the position, following the disclosure of an internal probe into financial reporting at his former employer.

Jorge Gomez, who became Moderna CFO on Monday, has left the biotech after Dentsply Sirona Inc. XRAY, -7.31% disclosed a probe.

The maker of dental products and technology said it was late filing its 10-Q quarterly earnings form with the Securities and Exchange because of the investigation.

“The investigation is ongoing, and the Company cannot predict the duration or outcome of the investigation,” said the filing. “As a result, the Company has not yet finalized its financial statements or its assessment of the impact of the investigation on its historical financial statements or for the financial statements for the three months ended March 31, 2022, and is therefore unable to file the Form 10-Q on a timely basis.”

In a separate filing, the company offered more detail, saying that its audit and finance committees are investigating allegations regarding certain financial matters submitted by former and current employees. The investigation is focused on the company’s use of incentives to sell products to distributors in the third and fourth quarters of 2021 and “whether those incentives were appropriately accounted for and the impact of those sales was adequately disclosed in the company’s periodic reports filed with the SEC.”

The company has retained outside counsel and a forensic accounting firm. It has also made voluntary disclosures to the SEC and will continue to do so throughout the probe.

Moderna MRNA, -2.56% said its recently retired CFO David Meline will come out of retirement as of May 11 while the company conducts a new CFO search.
