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

BOCA RATON, FL--(Marketwired - Nov 22, 2013) - Saxena White P.A. has filed a securities fraud class action lawsuit in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania against PhotoMedex, Inc. ("PhotoMedex" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: PHMD) on behalf of investors who purchased or otherwise acquired the common stock of the Company during the period from November 7, 2012 through November 14, 2013 (the "Class Period"). 

PhotoMedex is a skin health company providing integrated disease management and aesthetic solutions to dermatologists, professional aestheticians and consumers.

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 that: (i) the effectiveness of the Company's key product, the no!no! device, rested on flimsy, weak studies; (ii) a more credible study raised serious doubts as to the effectiveness of the Company's key product, and in fact showed that no!no! works no better than shaving; (iii) the Company materially overstated the prospects for the no!no! device in the Japanese market; and (iv) as a result of the above, the Company's financial statements, assurances and expectations with regard to the Company's growth, operations and business prospects were false and misleading at all relevant times.
