NEW YORK, May 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Attorney Advertising -- Bronstein, Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC remind investors that they have until July 19, 2013 to file lead plaintiff applications in a securities class action lawsuit against Accretive Health, Inc.

On February 27, 2013, shares of Accretive health fell 25% to $9.06 in intraday trading, and had fallen more than 26% at one point, in the wake of a release issued late Tuesday that said it would postpone the Company's financial results for the fourth quarter and full year 2012.   The Company said it is evaluating the timing of revenue recognition for its revenue cycle management pacts it has with its clients.  The Company added if a change is warranted, it may have to restate prior financial statements. 

The Complaint charges Accretive and other defendants with violations of the Federal Securities Laws.   The complaint alleges that throughout the class period defendants failed to disclose the following: (i) that the Company had improperly recognized revenue under certain managed service contracts; (ii) that the Company's financial statements were not prepared in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles; (iii) that the Company lacked adequate internal and financial controls; and (iv) that, as a result of the foregoing, the Company's financial statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.
