Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities law firm, is investigating potential securities fraud claims on behalf of investors of Orthofix International N.V. (“Orthofix” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: OFIX).
On July 29, 2013, Orthofix announced that it is postponing the release of its financial results for the second quarter of 2013 and its previously announced conference call. The Company explained that additional time is needed to review matters relating to revenue recognition practices for prior periods, and the Audit Committee, along with help from outside professionals, has commenced an internal investigation into these issues.
Following this news, on July 30, 2013, Orthofix’s stock dropped $4.46 or 16.28% to close at $22.94. Further, on August 6, 2013, the Company announced that it would restate financial statements for fiscal years 2011 and 2012 and the first quarter of 2013.
