NEW YORK, Feb. 2, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities law firm, reminds investors in Endologix, Inc. ("Endologix" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: ELGX) of the March 6, 2017 deadline to seek the role of lead plaintiff in a federal securities class action lawsuit filed against the Company and certain officers.
The lawsuit has been filed in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California on behalf of all those who purchased Endologix securities between August 2, 2016 and November 16, 2016 (the "Class Period"). The case, Vicky Nguyen v. Endologix, Inc. et al, No. 2:17-cv-00017 was filed on January 3, 2017, and has been assigned to Judge Andre Birotte Jr.
The lawsuit focuses on whether the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws by making false and/or misleading statements and/or failing to disclose that: (1) Endologix did not have the requisite clinical data for U.S. Food and Drug Administration ("FDA") premarket approval of the Nellix® EndoVascular Aneurysm Sealing System ("Nellix EVAS System"); and (2) as a result, Endologix's public statements were materially false and misleading.
Specifically, pre-market on November 16, 2016, Endologix issued a press release entitled "Endologix Provides Update on Nellix PMA Process," revealing "that the FDA requested the Company provide 2-year patient follow-up data from the EVAS-FORWARD IDE Study of the Nellix EVAS System."
After the announcement, Endologix's share price fell from $9.84 per share on November 15, 2016 to a closing price of $7.82 on November 16, 2016—a $2.02 or a 20.53% drop.
