Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP Encourages Investors Who Suffered Losses In Excess Of $100,000 Investing In Neptune Technologies & Bioressources Inc. To Contact The Firm

Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities law firm, is investigating potential securities fraud at Neptune Technologies & Bioressources Inc. (“Neptune” or the “Company”) (NasdaqCM: NEPT).

The investigation focuses on whether the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws by failing to disclose issues with Neptune’s Sherbrooke, Québec manufacturing plant, including that:  (1) Neptune had installed large acetone storage tanks, storing dangerously high levels of acetone that exceeded the limits established by the Québec Ministry of Environment in 2002; and (2) the Company had failed to obtain authorization from the Québec government before launching the expansion of its Sherbrooke facility.

Following a fatal explosion and fire at Neptune’s Sherbrooke plant, and the subsequent halt to trading of the stock by the Nasdaq Stock Exchange on November 8, 2012, the price of Neptune’s stock plunged $1.18 per share – approximately 32% of its closing price on November 7, 2012 – when trading resumed on November 26, 2012.
