Summary

Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP Encourages Investors Who Suffered Losses In USANA Health Sciences, Inc. To Contact The Firm

Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities law firm, reminds investors in USANA Health Sciences, Inc. (“USANA” or the “Company”) (NYSE:USNA) of the April 14, 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 District of Utah on behalf of all those who purchased USANA securities between March 14, 2014 and February 7, 2017 (the “Class Period”).  The case, Rumbaugh v. USANA Health Sciences et al, No. 2:17-cv-00106 was filed on February 13, 2017, and has been assigned to Judge Brooke C. Wells.

The lawsuit focuses on whether the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws by making false and/or misleading statements and/or failing to disclose that: (i) the Company’s BabyCare subsidiary had engaged in improper reimbursement practices in China; (ii) the aforementioned constituted violations of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act; (iii) consequentially, the Company’s China revenues were, in part, the product of unlawful conduct and unlikely to be sustainable; (iv) the aforementioned conduct, when it became known, was likely to subject the Company to significant regulatory scrutiny; and (v) as a result, USANA’s public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.

Specifically, after-market close on February 7, 2017, the Company disclosed that “[t]he Company is voluntarily conducting an internal investigation of its China operations, BabyCare Ltd. . . . focus[ing] on the compliance with the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act . . . and certain conduct and policies at BabyCare, including BabyCare’s expense reimbursement policies.” Furthermore, USANA advised investors that it retained outside counsel to conduct the investigation and had notified both the Securities and Exchange Commission and the Department of Justice of the investigation.

After the announcement, USANA’s share price fell from $62.65 per share on February 7, 2017 to a closing price of $55.40 on February 8, 2017 —a $7.25 or a 11.57% drop.
