NEW YORK, Nov. 23, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Attorney Advertising -- Bronstein, Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC announces that a class action lawsuit has been filed against Osiris Therapeutics, Inc. ("Osiris" or the "Company") (NasdaqGM: OSIR) and certain of its present and former officers.  The class action filed in the United District Court for the District of Maryland is on behalf of a class consisting of all persons or entities who purchased Osiris securities between May 12, 2014 and November 16, 2015 inclusive (the "Class Period").  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 "Exchange Act").  


Throughout the Class Period defendants made materially false and misleading statements regarding the Company's business, operational and financial information. Specifically, defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (i) the Company overstated revenues from several contracts and failed to follow GAAP standards, fixing its financial statements only a year and half later and causing millions in losses to the Company and Investors; and (ii) as a result of the foregoing, Osiris's public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times. 

It is alleged that on November 16, 2015, Osiris surprised investors by disclosing that it has "determined to correct the revenue recognition for three contracts which will result in a decrease in product revenues of $1.8 million in the first quarter of 2015, a decrease in product revenue of $1.0 million in the second quarter, an increase in product revenues of $0.8 million in the third quarter of 2015 and a decrease in product revenues of $1.1 million in 2014." Thus, three restatements were made related to distributor relationships, which completely removed about $3.1 million of sales and shifted about $3.9 million of sales between quarters.  As a result of these errors, Osiris missed its revenue targets in three of the last four quarters.

Following this news, Osiris shares fell sharply.  They dropped $3.02, or 21.53%, to close at $10.97 on November 17, 2015, damaging investors.
