Saxena White P.A. Files Securities Fraud Class Action Against Neovasc, Inc.

BOCA RATON, FL--(Marketwired - June 06, 2016) - Saxena White P.A. has filed a securities fraud class action lawsuit in the United States District Court for the District of Massachusetts against Neovasc, Inc. ("Neovasc" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: NVCN) on behalf of investors who purchased or otherwise acquired the common stock of the Company during the period between January 26, 2015, and May 19, 2016, inclusive (the "Class Period").

Neovasc is a specialty medical company that develops, manufactures and markets cardiovascular products. The Company's main product is the Tiara, a transcatheter mitral valve device used to treat mitral valve disease. The Tiara, which the Company started developing in the second quarter of 2011, can be implanted through minimally invasive surgery to individuals who experience mitral regurgitation as a result of mitral heart valve disease.

The Complaint brings forth claims for violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. The Complaint alleges that, throughout the Class Period, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements, as well as failed to disclose material adverse facts about the Company's business, operations, and prospects. Specifically, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose: (i) that the Company's Tiara device was developed through unlawful business practices, including the misappropriation of trade secrets from another company; (ii) that a related lawsuit against Neovasc regarding the misappropriation of trades secrets had merit; and (iii) that, as a result of the above, Defendants' statements about Neovasc's business, operations, and prospects were false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.
