("Uroplasty" or the "Company") (Nasdaq:UPI) and certain of its officers. The class action, filed in United States District Court, Southern District of New York, and docketed under 13 CIV 4570, is on behalf of a class consisting of all persons or entities who purchased or otherwise acquired securities of Uroplasty between July 26, 2012 and June 13, 2013 both dates inclusive (the "Class Period"). This class action seeks to recover damages against the Company and certain of its officers and directors as a result of alleged violations of the federal securities laws pursuant to Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and Rule 10b-5 promulgated thereunder.

Uroplasty designs, develops, manufactures, and markets medical products primarily for the treatment of voiding dysfunctions. The Company's principal product is Urgent PC Neuromodulation System which is a system that delivers percutaneous tibial nerve stimulation (PTNS) for the office-based treatment of overactive bladder. Uroplasty also offers Macroplastique, a bulking agent.

The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements, as well as failed to disclose material adverse facts about the Company's business, operations, and prospects. Specifically, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) the Company improperly recognized revenues; (2) the Company made improper sales commission payments; (3) the Company lacked adequate internal and financial controls; and (4) as a result of the foregoing, the Company's statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.

On June 14, 2013, the Company disclosed a delay in the filing of its annual report for the year ended March 31, 2013, until the completion of a review of its internal controls over reporting. Specifically, the review relates "to the recognition of orders and the payment of sales commissions at the end of fiscal quarters." Further, the Company placed its Chief Financial Officer "on administrative leave pending completion of the internal control review." On this news, Uroplasty securities declined $0.23 per share or over 10%, to close at $2.22 per share on June 14, 2013.
