FINAL DEADLINE ALERT: Brower Piven Reminds Shareholders Of Approaching Deadline In Class Action Lawsuit And Encourages Investors Who Have Losses In Excess Of $100,000 From Investment In Meridian Bioscience, Inc. (NASDAQ: VIVO) To Contact The Firm
STEVENSON, Md., Jan. 03, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The securities litigation law firm of Brower Piven, A Professional Corporation, announces that a class action lawsuit has been commenced in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Ohio on behalf of purchasers of Meridian Bioscience, Inc. (NASDAQ:VIVO) (“Meridian” or the “Company”) securities during the period between March 25, 2016 and July 13, 2017, inclusive (the “Class Period”). Investors who wish to become proactively involved in the litigation have until January 16, 2018 to seek appointment as lead plaintiff.
If you wish to choose counsel to represent you and the class, you must apply to be appointed lead plaintiff and be selected by the Court. The lead plaintiff will direct the litigation and participate in important decisions including whether to accept a settlement for the class in the action. The lead plaintiff will be selected from among applicants claiming the largest loss from investment in Meridian securities during the Class Period. Members of the class will be represented by the lead plaintiff and counsel chosen by the lead plaintiff. No class has yet been certified in the above action.
The complaint accuses the defendants of violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 by virtue of the defendants’ failure to disclose during the Class Period that Meridian’s lead tests provide inaccurate results.
According to the complaint, following a May 17, 2017 press release by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) warning about the inaccuracy of the Company’s lead tests, and a July 13, 2017 statement by the FDA regarding the status of the investigation into the inaccurate results, the value of Meridian shares declined significantly.
If you have suffered a loss in excess of $100,000 from investment in Meridian securities purchased on or after March 25, 2016 and held through the revelation of negative information during and/or at the end of the Class Period and would like to learn more about this lawsuit and your ability to participate as a lead plaintiff, without cost or obligation to you, please visit our website at http://www.browerpiven.com/casesandinvestigations.html.
