Harwood Feffer LLP Announces Investigation of HeartWare International, Inc.

Jan 25, 2016, 13:50 ET from Harwood Feffer LLP

NEW YORK, Jan. 25, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Harwood Feffer LLP (www.hfesq.com) is investigating potential claims against the board of directors of HeartWare International, Inc. ("He" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: HTWR), concerning whether the board has breached its fiduciary duties to shareholders.

In June 2014, HeartWare received a warning letter from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration identifying inadequacies at the Company's sole manufacturing facility.  Company representatives assured investors that the letter posed no risk to HeartWare's clinical trials or timely approval of a pump that HeartWare is developing called MVAD.     

In September 2015, the Company disclosed that it was halting enrollment in the MVAD trial due to a manufacturing problem with the device.  In October 2015, the Company disclosed that patients in the MVAD trial had suffered adverse events causing the trial to be further delayed. 

Then, on January 11, 2016, Heartware revealed that problems with MVAD had resulted in serious adverse events in nearly half of the patients so far implanted with the device and the trial would be delayed indefinitely.

Our investigation concerns whether the Company board of directors has breached its fiduciary duties to shareholders, grossly mismanaged the Company, and/or committed abuses of control in connection with the foregoing.
