Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP Encourages Investors Who Suffered Losses In Excess Of $100,000 Investing In Omega Protein Corp. To Contact The Firm Before Lead Plaintiff Deadline
Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities law firm, reminds investors in Omega Protein Corp. (“Omega” or the “Company”) (NYSE:OME) of the May 1, 2017 deadline to seek the role of lead plaintiff in a federal securities class action lawsuit filed against the Company and certain officers.
The lawsuit has been filed in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York on behalf of all those who purchased Omega stock or options between June 4, 2013 and March 1, 2017 (the “Class Period”). The case, Malone v. Omega Protein Corporation et al, No. 17-cv-01596 was filed on March 2, 2017, and has been assigned to Judge P. Kevin Castel.
The lawsuit focuses on whether the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws by engaging in conduct that would potentially lead to an investigation into its whistleblower policy by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”)
Specifically, on March 1, 2017, the Company acknowledged that the SEC issued a subpoena in December 2016 requesting information in connection with an investigation relating to a Company subsidiary’s compliance with its probation terms and the Company’s protection of whistleblower employees.
After the announcement, Omega’s share price fell from $26.25 per share on March 1, 2017 to a closing price of $20.00 on March 2, 2017—a $6.25 or a 23.8% drop.
