On May 3, 2022, Scorpion Capital published a report alleging that IonQ is a “part-time side-hustle run by two academics who barely show up, dressed up as a ‘company,’” and a “scam built on phony statements about nearly all key aspects of the technology and business.” Moreover, the report claimed that the Company’s quantum computer is a “useless toy that can’t even add 1+1, as revealed by experiments we hired experts to run,” that the Company reported “[f]ictitious ‘revenue’ via sham transactions and related-party round-tripping,” and that the CEO appears to be making up his MIT credentials.
On this news, IonQ’s stock price fell $0.71 per share, or 9.03%, to close at $7.15 per share on May 3, 2022.
