NEW YORK, April 17, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Pomerantz LLP has filed a class action lawsuit against Omnicell, Inc. ("Omnicell" or the "Company")(NASDAQ: OMCL) and certain of its officers. The class action, filed in United States District Court, Northern District of California, and docketed under 15-cv-01280, is on behalf of a class consisting of all persons or entities who purchased Omnicell securities between May 2, 2014 and March 2, 2015, inclusive (the "Class Period"). This class action seeks to recover damages against Defendants for alleged violations of the federal securities laws under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the "Exchange Act").
If you are a shareholder who purchased Omnicell securities during the Class Period, you have until May 18, 2015 to ask the Court to appoint you as Lead Plaintiff for the class.

Those who inquire by e-mail are encouraged to include their mailing address, telephone number, and number of shares purchased.
Omnicell, Inc. provides automation solutions for medication and supply management. The company operates in two segments, Acute Care and Non-Acute Care.
The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements, as well as failed to disclose material adverse facts pertaining to arrangements with certain customers. Specifically, defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose: (1) the existence of a "side letter" arrangement with a Company customer for certain discounts and Company products that were to be provided at no cost, but which were not reflected in the final invoices paid by the customer; (2) that the Company lacked adequate internal controls over financial reporting; and (3) that as a result of the foregoing, the Company's financial statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.
On March 2, 2015, after the market closed, the Company disclosed in a regulatory filing that it would be unable to timely file its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2014. According to the Company, "additional time is required by the Company to investigate a notice received on February 27, 2015 from a Company employee alleging, among other matters, the existence of a 'side letter' arrangement with a Company customer for certain discounts and Company products that were to be provided at no cost, but which were not reflected in the final invoices paid by the customer."
As a result of this news, shares of Omnicell fell $2.14, or over 6%, on extremely heavy volume, to close at $33.08 on March 3, 2015.
