Holzer Holzer & Fistel, LLC Announces That a Class Action Lawsuit Has Been Filed on Behalf of Investors in Genzyme Corp.

ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwire - August 18, 2009) - Holzer Holzer & Fistel, LLC announces that a class action lawsuit has been filed in the United States District Court for the District of Massachusetts on behalf of purchasers of Genzyme Corporation ("Genzyme" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: GENZ) who purchased shares between June 26, 2008 and July 21, 2009, inclusive (the "Class Period"). The lawsuit alleges that Genzyme failed to disclose certain problems it was experiencing at two of its manufacturing facilities. The complaint alleges that this resulted in significant production problems that negatively impacted the Company's revenues.

If you purchased shares of Genzyme common stock during the Class Period, you have the legal right to petition the Court to be appointed a "lead plaintiff." A lead plaintiff is a representative party that acts on behalf of other class members in directing the litigation. Any such request must satisfy certain criteria and be made no later than September 28, 2009. Any member of the purported class may move the Court to serve as lead plaintiff through counsel of their choice, or may choose to do nothing and remain an absent class member. If you are a Genzyme investor and would like to discuss a potential lead plaintiff appointment, or your rights and interests with respect to the lawsuit, you may contact Michael I. Fistel, Jr., Esq., or Marshall P. Dees, Esq. via email at mfistel@holzerlaw.com, or mdees@holzerlaw.com, or via toll-free telephone at (888) 508-6832.
