The complaint alleges that during the Class Period, Omega made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: the SEC is requesting information for an investigation relating to the Company subsidiary's compliance with its probation terms and Omega's protection of whistleblower employees; that it is possible that the foregoing matter could have a material adverse effect on Omega's business, reputation, results of operation and financial condition; and that as a result of the above, Omega's statements about its business, operations and prospects were materially false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis at all relevant times. When this information reached the public, shares of Omega fell in value significantly.
