NEW YORK, Feb. 7, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Attorney Advertising -- Bronstein, Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC notifies investors that a class action lawsuit has been filed against Psychemedics Corporation ("Psychemedics" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: PMD) and certain of its officers, on behalf of a class who purchased Psychemedics securities between February 28, 2014 and January 30, 2017, inclusive (the "Class Period"). Such investors are encouraged to join this case by visiting the firm's site: www.bgandg.com/pmd.
This class action seeks to recover damages against Defendants for alleged violations of the federal securities laws under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.
The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) through its affiliate Psychemedics Brasil Exames Toxicologicos Ltda., Psychemedics engaged in anticompetitive conduct to maintain a monopoly over the Brazilian market in violation of the law; (2) effectively, Psychemedics lacked effective internal controls over financial reporting; and (3) consequently, Psychemedics' public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.
On January 31, 2017, it was revealed that Psychemedics Brasil Exames Toxicologicos Ltda., Psychemedics' local representative in Brazil, was ordered to compensate Omega Laboratories, Inc. USA for losses caused by anticompetitive practices used for "preventing other companies from accessing (the) market," on January 20, 2017. Following this news, Psychemedics stock dropped during intra-trading on January 31, 2017.
