NEW YORK, Jan. 10, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Wolf Haldenstein Adler Freeman & Herz LLP announces that a federal securities class action lawsuit has been filed in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York on behalf of investors that purchased or otherwise acquired Liberty Health Sciences Inc. (“Liberty” or the “Company”) (OTC: LHSIF; XCNQ: LHS) securities between June 28, 2018 and December 3, 2018, inclusive (the “Class Period”).
Shareholders who purchased shares of Liberty Health Sciences Inc. and suffered losses on United States and/or Canadian exchanges are urged to contact the firm immediately at email@example.com or (800) 575-0735 or (212) 545-4774. You may obtain additional information concerning the action on our website, www.whafh.com.
If you have incurred losses in the shares of Liberty Health Sciences Inc., you may, no later than March 9, 2019, request that the Court appoint you lead plaintiff of the proposed class. Please contact Wolf Haldenstein to learn more about your rights as an investor in March 9, 2019.
The filed complaint alleges that defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that:
- Liberty, in conjunction with Aphria, was involved in a scheme whereby numerous fraudulent acquisitions and transactions were made to provide undue benefits to both companies’ insiders; and
- as a result, Liberty’s public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.
In September 2018, Liberty sold its stake in Aphria Inc. (“Aphria”). On December 3, 2018, Quintessential Capital Management and Hindenburg Research issued a report entitled “Aphria: A Shell Game with a Cannabis Business on the Side,” claiming that Aphria was part of a scheme orchestrated by a network of insiders to divert funds away from shareholders and into their own pockets.
On this news, Liberty’s stock price fell $0.36 per share, or nearly 34%, over the next two trading days to close at $0.70 on December 4, 2018, thereby injuring investors.
