The SEC complaint seems to follows this string of events, alleging that Theranos, Holmes, and Balwani made "numerous false and misleading statements in investor presentations, product demonstrations, and media articles by which they deceived investors into believing that its key product - a portable blood analyzer - could conduct comprehensive blood tests from finger drops of blood, revolutionizing the blood testing industry". That technology was never used by the Department of Defense, even though Gen. James N. Mattis, who then led the U.S. Central Command, personally pushed for it to be used in the field. In reality, operations in 2014 raised just over $100,000.

In a statement, Theranos' independent board of directors said the company was "pleased to be bringing this matter to a close and looks forward to advancing its technology". Holmes, the charismatic young Stanford dropout who once adorned the cover of magazines in Steve Jobs-esque turtlenecks, must pay a $500,000 penalty, give up voting control of the company, return the shares she obtained during the alleged fraud, and can not be part of the leadership of a public company for a decade.
