NEW YORK, Aug. 7, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationally acclaimed investor rights law firm, announces that a securities class action lawsuit has been filed on behalf of shareholders of Abiomed, Inc. ("Abiomed" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: ABMD) between January 31, 2019, and July 31, 2019, inclusive (the "Class Period"). The lawsuit filed in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York seeks to recover damages for Abiomed investors under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.

The complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and misleading statements regarding the Company's business, operational and compliance policies. Specifically, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (i) Abiomed's revenue growth was in decline; (ii) the Company did not have a sufficient plan in place to stem its declining revenue growth; (iii) the Company was unlikely to restore its revenue growth over the next several fiscal quarters; (iv) consequently, Abiomed was reasonably likely to revise its full-year 2020 guidance in a way that would fall short of the Company's prior projections and market expectations; and (v) as a result, the Company's public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.
On August 1, 2019, the Company slashed its previously issued full-year 2020 guidance from total revenues in the range of $900-945 million to total revenues in the range of $885-925 million, which fell roughly $22 million short of market expectations. On this news, Abiomed's stock price fell $73.69 per share, or 26.45%, to close at $204.87 per share on August 1, 2019.
