NEW YORK, Jan. 6, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities law firm, reminds investors in Diplomat Pharmacy, Inc. ("Diplomat" or the "Company") (NYSE: DPLO) of the January 9, 2017 deadline to seek the role of lead plaintiff in a federal securities class action lawsuit filed against the Company and certain officers.
The lawsuit has been filed in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan on behalf of all those who purchased Diplomat stock or options between October 9, 2014 and November 2, 2016 (the "Class Period"). The case, Zimmerman v. Diplomat Pharmacy, Inc. et al, No. 16-cv-14005 was filed on November 10, 2016, and has been assigned to Judge Stephanie Dawkins Davis.
The lawsuit focuses on whether the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws by making false and/or misleading statements and/or failing to disclose that: (1) the Company lacked adequate internal controls over its financial reporting; (2) as a result the Company could not adequately calculate direct and indirect remuneration ("DIR") fees; (3) the Company's hepatitis C segment was not performing as previously disclosed to investors; (4) and therefore, the Company had overstated its full-year 2016 guidance.
Specifically, on November 2, 2016, Diplomat announced third quarter 2016 results that were below investors' expectations and lowered its full year 2016 guidance. The Company's Chief Executive Officer attributed the poor operating results to "softness in the hepatitis C business" and DIR fees.
On this news, Diplomat's share price fell from $22.38 per share on November 2, 2016 to a closing price of $12.95 on November 3, 2016—a $9.43 or a 42.1% drop.
