NEW YORK, March 20, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- In light of a new court order, it is important that investors who purchased shares on a September 7, 2012 secondary offering of stock by Vocera Communications Inc. (Vocera) (NYSE:VCRA) step forward to preserve claims against the company under the federal securities laws.
Labaton Sucharow LLP is the Court-appointed Lead Counsel in a class action suit pending against Vocera in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California. The suit is brought on behalf of a class of investors who purchased or otherwise acquired Vocera securities between March 28, 2012 and May 3, 2013, inclusive.
The complaint alleges that Vocera and certain of its officers violated federal securities laws in connection with false statements and omissions that misrepresented Vocera's growth prospects.
On February 11, 2015, the Court in the federal action permitted key claims to go forward, but dismissed claims under the Securities Act of 1933 relating to a September 7, 2012 secondary offering because Lead Plaintiffs did not purchase on that offering. The Court granted Lead Plaintiff until March 27, 2015 to file an amended complaint.
In order for the class to pursue recovery for losses on the September 7, 2012 secondary offering under the Securities Act of 1933, the Court will require that an investor who bought on the offering serve as a representative plaintiff. Members of the class will be represented by Lead Plaintiffs, and the class will be represented by Lead Plaintiffs' counsel, Labaton Sucharow.
If a suitable investor does not step forward by March 27, 2015, there is a chance that shareholders of Vocera who purchased common stock on the secondary offering may not be able to pursue their claims under the Securities Act of 1933.
