Federman & Sherwood Announces the Filing of a Securities Class Action Lawsuit against PetMed Express, Inc.

Oklahoma City, OK (August 29, 2017) – On August 25, 2017, a securities class action lawsuit was filed in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida against PetMed Express, Inc. (NASDAQ: PETS). 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 May 8, 2017 through August 23, 2017. More specifically, this litigation was filed because Defendants failed to disclose: (1) that the Company was marketing dangerous and addictive animal drugs to humans; (2) that, as such, the Company is vulnerable to potential civil or criminal liability, as well as other regulatory action; (3) that, as a result of the foregoing, Google may halt the Company’s advertising activities; and (4) that, as a result of the foregoing, Defendants’ statements about PetMed’s business, operations, and prospects, were false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.

On August 23, 2017, Aurelius Value published a report alleging that the Company targets opioid users with Google ads and other marketing techniques to facilitate the abuse of opiates. On this news, the Company’s stock price fell $3.19 per share, to close at $36.22 per share on August 23, 2017.

Plaintiff seeks to recover damages on behalf of all PetMed Express, Inc. 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 Tuesday, October 24, 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.
