Federman & Sherwood Announces the Filing of a Securities Class Action Lawsuit against Omega Protein Corporation
Oklahoma City, OK (March 6, 2017) – On March 2, 2017, a securities class action lawsuit was filed in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York against Omega Protein Corporation (NYSE: OME). The complaint alleges violations of federal securities laws, Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and Rule 10b-5, including allegations of issuing a series of material or false misrepresentations to the market which had the effect of artificially inflating the market price during the Class Period, which is June 4, 2013 through March 1, 2017. More specifically, this litigation was filed because on March 1, 2017, Omega revealed that the Company had received a subpoena from the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission regarding an investigation of an Omega subsidiary's compliance with probation terms and the Company's protection of whistleblowers.
Plaintiff seeks to recover damages on behalf of all Omega Protein Corporation shareholders who purchased common stock during the Class Period and are therefore a member of the Class as described above. You may move the Court no later than Monday, May 1, 2017 to serve as a lead plaintiff for the entire Class. However, in order to do so, you must meet certain legal requirements pursuant to the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995.
