BOSTON, May 18, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Block & Leviton LLP (www.blockesq.com), a securities litigation firm representing investors nationwide, is investigating whether Sinovac Biotech Ltd. ("Sinovac" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: SVA) and certain of its officers and directors violated federal securities laws following the revelation of an SEC investigation.
On December 21, 2016, the investor website Seeking Alpha published an article revealing that court documents demonstrate Sinovac's Chairman and CEO, Weidong Ying, bribed a member of the Chinese food and drug administration to help obtain approval for its drug.
Then, on May 16, 2017, Sinovac disclosed that the Company is under investigation by the SEC regarding Ying's bribery of officials and that the Company would not be able to timely file its annual financial results.
On this news, the Company's stock has fallen 5%, causing millions in losses to investors.
