Thornton Law Firm alerts investors that a shareholder class action lawsuit has been filed on behalf of shareholders of STAAR Surgical Company (NASDAQ:STAA). Investors who purchased STAA securities between February 26, 2020, and August 10, 2020, that are interested in learning about the case or being a lead plaintiff are encouraged to submit their information above. Investors may also contact Thornton Law Firm at shareholder@tenlaw.com, or call 617-531-3917.

It is alleged that STAAR failed to disclose that STAAR Surgical was overstating and mischaracterizing: (1) its sales and growth in China; (2) its marketing spend; and (3) its research and development expenses.

Specifically, the Complaint alleges that on August 5, 2020, STAAR Surgical reported disappointing financial results and upon this news, STAAR’s common stock price fell approximately 10%. The Complaint also alleges that on August 11, 2020, analyst J Capital Research published a report in which it wrote that “[w]e think that STAAR Surgical has overstated sales in China by at least one-third, or $21.6 mln. That would mean that all of the company’s $14 mln in 2019 profit is fake.” The Complaint alleges that the report continued, stating that “[f]ake sales [in China] come at 100% margins and therefore translate directly into profit. That means that the roughly $21.6 mln in overstated Chinese sales in 2019 represent 152% of total company profit. In other words, without the fraud that we believe pervades the China business, STAAR is losing money.” On this news, STAAR’s common stock price fell an additional 6.2%, allegedly damaging investors.
