NEW YORK, Jan. 14, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationally acclaimed investor rights law firm, reminds investors of the important February 25, 2019 lead plaintiff deadline in the shareholder class action lawsuit against Immunomedics, Inc. ("Immunomedics" or the "Company") (NASDAQ:IMMU). The lawsuit seeks to recover damages on behalf of those who purchased the securities of Immunomedics between August 23, 2018 and December 20, 2018, both dates inclusive (the "Class Period").

According to the lawsuit, throughout the Class Period, and unbeknownst to investors, Immunomedics misled investors by stating in its SEC filings beginning on August 23, 2018, that, "the FDA generally will issue a notice on Form 483 if it finds issues with respect to its inspections" without disclosing to investors the fact that between August 6, 2018 and August 14, 2018, the FDA cited Immunomedics for a host of violations observed at its Morris Plains, New Jersey, drug substance manufacturing facility. These violations included manipulated bioburden samples, misrepresentation of an integrity test procedure in the batch record, and backdating of batch records, such as dates of analytical results.
