NEW YORK, Jan. 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities law firm, reminds investors in Nu Skin Enterprises, Inc. ("Nu Skin" or the "Company") (NYSE: NUS) of the March 24, 2014 deadline to seek the role of lead plaintiff in a federal securities class action lawsuit filed against Nu Skin, and certain executives.
A complaint has been filed on behalf of all persons who purchased or otherwise acquired Nu Skin securities between October 25, 2011 and January 15, 2014, inclusive (the "Class Period") in the District of Utah.
The complaint alleges that the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws with respect to its disclosures concerning its business, operations, and prospects.
Specifically, the action alleges that throughout the Class Period the Company and senior executives made a series of false and misleading statements concerning pyramid selling schemes the Company had engaged in in its Mainland China operations.
On January 15, 2014, a leading Chinese newspaper issued an investigative story suggesting that Nu Skin is an illegal pyramid scheme in China and utilizes unlawful and immoral business practices violating Chinese law. Following this news, the Company's stock declined an additional $21.24 per share, or over 15%, to close at $115.23 per share on January 15, 2014 on heavy volume.
Further, on January 16, 2014, the Company disclosed that Chinese government regulators were investigating its business practices.
