NEW YORK, Sept. 14, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Wolf Haldenstein Adler Freeman & Herz LLP announces that a federal securities fraud class action lawsuit has been filed in the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey against OPKO Health, Inc. (Nasdaq: OPK) (“OPKO”) on behalf of purchasers of OPKO securities between September 26, 2013 and September 7, 2018, inclusive (the “Class Period”).

The filed complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, the defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that:

  • defendant Frost and OPKO were engaged in a pump-and-dump scheme with several other individuals and companies in their investments in several penny stocks;

  • this illicit scheme would result in governmental scrutiny including from the SEC; and 

  • as a result, the defendants' statements about OPKO's business, operations and prospects were materially false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis at all relevant times.

On September 7, 2018, the SEC issued a press release entitled "SEC Charges Microcap Fraudsters for Roles in Lucrative Market Manipulation Schemes," which included Frost and OPKO as defendants. The press release stated, in relevant part, "[a]ccording to the SEC's complaint, from 2013 to 2018, a group of prolific South Florida-based microcap fraudsters . . . manipulated the share price of the stock of three companies in classic pump-and-dump schemes. Miami biotech  billionaire Phillip Frost allegedly participated in two of these three schemes.”

Following this news, shares of OPKO fell $1.01, or over 18%, before NASDAQ halted the trading of OPKO on September 7, 2018 at 2:34 p.m. EDT at $4.58 per share.

To date, OPKO remains halted and shareholders are unable to trade the shares.
