NEW YORK, Oct. 11, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities law firm, reminds investors in OvaScience, Inc. ("OvaScience" or the "Company") (Nasdaq:OVAS) of the November 15, 2013 deadline to seek the role of lead plaintiff in a federal securities class action lawsuit filed against the Company and certain executives.
A complaint has been filed on behalf of all persons who purchased OvaScience securities between February 25, 2013 and September 10, 2013 (the "Class Period").
The complaint alleges that the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws with respect to its disclosures concerning business, operational, and compliance policies. Specifically, the action focuses on whether OvaScience misrepresented to the FDA and the investing public that its AUGMENT technology qualified for 361 HCT/P designation and therefore did not need FDA licensure in order to be tested and marketed.
On September 10, 2013, the Company announced that it would suspend enrollment of AUGMENT in the U.S. after receiving an "untitled" letter from the FDA questioning the designation of AUGMENT as 361 HCT/P.
Following this news, OvaScience's stock declined by $3.32 or over 23%.
