NEW YORK, Feb. 10, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Rosen Law Firm, P.A. announces that a class action lawsuit has been filed on behalf of purchasers of the common stock of Merge Healthcare Incorporated (Nasdaq:MRGE) asserting violations of the federal securities laws.

NO CLASS HAS YET BEEN CERTIFIED IN THE ABOVE ACTION. UNTIL A CLASS IS CERTIFIED, YOU ARE NOT REPRESENTED BY COUNSEL UNLESS YOU RETAIN ONE. YOU MAY CHOOSE TO DO NOTHING AT THIS POINT AND REMAIN AN ABSENT CLASS MEMBER.

The lawsuit alleges that Merge Healthcare and certain of its executive officers and/or directors misrepresented or failed to disclose that, among other things:

  • Merge Healthcare's reported subscription backlog and its reported increase in backlog were false and overstated during the six quarters ended September 30, 2013.
  • Merge Healthcare was experiencing a continued reluctance among large health systems to move forward with enterprise purchases.
  • Merge Healthcare failed to properly log and verify customer contracts and appropriately calculate the commissions of its sales force.

On this adverse news, the price of Merge Healthcare stock, which had traded as high as $4.71 per share during the Class Period, fell to a closing price of $2.11 per share as a result of the alleged fraud.
