Law Offices of Todd M. Garber Announces Lead Plaintiff Deadline In The Class Action Lawsuit Against Abiomed, Inc.21:45 EST Monday, January 07, 2013 LOS ANGELES (Business Wire) -- The Law Offices of Todd M. Garber announces that shareholders of Abiomed, Inc. (“Abiomed” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ:ABMD) have until January 15, 2013 to move for lead plaintiff status in the shareholder lawsuit filed in the United States District Court for the District of Massachusetts. The lawsuit was filed on behalf of a class (the “Class”) comprising all purchasers of Abiomed securities between August 5, 2011 and October 31, 2012, inclusive (the “Class Period”). Abiomed provides medical devices for circulatory support and offers a continuum of care in heart recovery for acute heart failure patients. The Company's Impella 2.5 catheter is a percutaneous micro heart pump with an integrated motor and sensors, designed primarily for use by interventional cardiologists to support patients in the cardiac catheterization lab who may require assistance to maintain their circulation. The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period the defendants made materially false and misleading statements regarding the Company's business, operations and financial prospects. Specifically, defendants misrepresented and/or failed to disclose that: (1) the Company was improperly marketing and/or labeling its Impella 2.5 system; (2) Abiomed's financial results would be materially impacted if the Company were either forced to stop or discontinued its improper conduct; (3) the Company lacked adequate internal and financial controls; and (4) as a result of the foregoing, the Company's statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times. If you are a member of the above-described Class, you may move the Court no later than January 15, 2013 to serve as lead plaintiff; however, you must meet certain legal requirements. To be a member of the Class you need not take any action at this time. You may retain counsel of your choice or take no action and remain an absent Class member. If you wish to discuss this action or have any questions concerning this Notice or your rights or interests with respect to these matters, please contact Todd M. Garber, Esquire, of the Law Offices of Todd M. Garber, by telephone at 213-700-7262 or by email to info@toddgarberlaw.com.
