Dec 08, 2015, 15:41 ET from Pomerantz LLP

NEW YORK, Dec. 8, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Pomerantz LLP is investigating claims on behalf of investors of Osiris Therapeutics, Inc. ("Osiris" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: OSIR).  Such investors are advised to contact Robert S. Willoughby at or 888-476-6529, ext. 9980.

The investigation concerns whether Osiris and certain of its officers and/or directors have violated Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.

On November 16, 2015, Osiris disclosed that the Company had "determined to correct the revenue recognition for three contracts which will result in a decrease in product revenues of $1.8 million in the first quarter of 2015, a decrease in product revenue of $1.0 million in the second quarter, an increase in product revenues of $0.8 million in the third quarter of 2015 and a decrease in product revenues of $1.1 million in 2014."  These restatements removed altogether approximately $3.1 million in sales and shifted approximately $3.9 million in sales between quarters.  Consequently, Osiris in fact missed its revenue targets in three of the last four quarters. 

On this news, Osiris stock fell $3.02, or 21.53%, to close at $10.97 on November 17, 2015.
