By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Managed Care Weekly Digest -- Glancy Prongay & Murray LLP ("GPM") reminds investors of the September 26, 2017 deadline in the class action lawsuit filed on behalf of investors who purchased Foundation Medicine, Inc. ("Foundation" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: FMI) securities between February 26, 2014 and November 3, 2015, inclusive (the "Class Period"). Foundation investors have until September 26, 2017 to file a lead plaintiff motion. To obtain information or participate in the class action, please visit the Foundation case page on our website at www.glancylaw.com/case/foundation-medicine-inc (see also Glancy Prongay and Murray LLP).
The Complaint filed in this class action alleges that, during the Class Period, the Company made false and misleading statements and/or failed to disclose adverse information regarding the Company's business and prospects. Specifically, the complaint alleges that the defendants made false and/or misleading statements regarding: (i) the reimbursement process and likelihood of coverage for Foundation's tumor tests by Medicare; and (ii) the Company's financial guidance. As a result of these false statements, Foundation common stock traded at artificially inflated prices during the Class Period.
On July 29, 2015, the Company disclosed that "clinical volume growth was affected by slower than anticipated progress towards obtaining a local coverage determination from our regional Medicare Administrative Contractor (MAC) and by some competitive noise in the market" and that, as such, the Company was "adjusting" its guidance for clinical volume and annual revenues. Then, on November 3, 2015, the Company disclosed a further revision to the already reduced number of clinical tests it expected to report for 2015.
On this news, the price of Foundation common stock fell $6.62 per share, to close at $17.31 per share on November 4, 2015.
