The Klein Law Firm announces that a class action complaint has been filed on behalf of shareholders of OPKO Health Inc. (NASDAQ: OPK) who purchased shares between September 26, 2013 and September 7, 2018. The action, which was filed in the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey, alleges that the Company violated federal securities laws.
In particular, the Opko lawsuit alleges that (1) OPKO and its Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Phillip Frost, were engaged in a pump-and-dump scheme with several other individuals and companies in their investments in several penny stocks; (2) this illicit scheme would result in governmental scrutiny including from the SEC; and (3) as a result, defendants’ statements about OPKO’s business, operations and prospects were materially false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis at all relevant times.
Shareholders have until November 13, 2018 to petition the court for lead plaintiff status. Your ability to share in any recovery does not require that you serve as lead plaintiff. You may choose to be an absent class member.
