Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP Encourages Investors Who Suffered Losses In Excess Of $100,000 Investing In Cardiovascular Systems Inc. To Contact The Firm Before Lead Plaintiff Deadline
Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities law firm, reminds investors in Cardiovascular Systems Inc. (“Cardiovascular” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ:CSII) of the April 12, 2016 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 Central District of California on behalf of all those who purchased or otherwise acquired Cardiovascular securities between September 12, 2011 and January 21, 2016 (the “Class Period”). The case, Caroline Paradis v. Cardiovascular Systems, Inc. et al., No. 2:16-cv-01011 was filed on February 12, 2016, and has been assigned to Judge Dale S. Fischer and Magistrate Judge Rozella A. Oliver.
The lawsuit focuses on whether the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws by making materially false and misleading statements about the Company’s business prospects and by failing to disclose that Cardiovascular distributed illegal kickbacks to health care providers and engaged in off-label promotion of the Company’s medical devices.
Specifically, the lawsuit alleges that during aftermarket hours on May 9, 2014, the Company received a letter from the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Western District of North Carolina stating that it is investigating the Company to determine whether it violated the False Claims Act, resulting in the submission of false claims to federal and state health care programs.
After the announcement, Cardiovascular’s share price fell from $29.05 per share on May 9, 2014 to a closing price of $27.43 on May 12, 2014 —a $1.62 or a 5.6% drop.
Then, during aftermarket hours on October 7, 2015, the Company announced lower expected revenue for the 2016 fiscal first quarter due to the continued effects of the sales force transition caused by the receipt of the letter from the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Western District of North Carolina.
After the announcement, Cardiovascular’s share price fell from $16.63 per share on October 7, 2015 to a closing price of $13.62 on October 8, 2015—a $3.01 or a 18.1% drop.
During aftermarket hours on January 21, 2016, the Company announced lower expected revenue for the 2016 fiscal second quarter, due to the continued effects of the sales force transition caused by the receipt of the letter from the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Western District of North Carolina..
After the announcement, Cardiovascular’s share price fell from $12.46 per share on January 21, 2016 to a closing price of $8.74 on January 22, 2016—a $3.72 or a 29.9% drop.
