NEW YORK, Sept. 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities law firm, reminds investors in LifeVantage Corporation ("LifeVantage" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: LFVN) of the November 14, 2016 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 District of Utah on behalf of all those who purchased LifeVantage securities between November 4, 2015 and September 13, 2016 (the "Class Period"). The case, Zhang v. Lifevantage et al, No. 2:16-cv-00965 was filed on September 15, 2016, and has been assigned to Judge Brooke C. Wells.
The lawsuit focuses on whether the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws by failing to disclose potential deficiencies in the Company's internal control over financial reporting.
Specifically, after markets closed on September 13, 2016, the Company announced that it would not release its fourth quarter and fiscal year 2016 financial results on time due to accounting issues on sales into certain international markets and the revenue and income tax accruals associated with such sales. The Company also stated that an independent review by the Company's Audit Committee is currently underway.
After the announcement, LifeVantage's share price fell from $10.40 per share on September 13, 2016 to a closing price of $9.08 on September 14, 2016—a $1.32 or a 12.69% drop.
