BENSALEM, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Law Offices of Howard G. Smith announces an investigation on behalf of Covetrus, Inc. (“Covetrus” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: CVET) investors concerning the Company and its officers’ possible violations of federal securities laws.

In February 2019, Covetrus was formed through a spin-off of Henry Schein’s Animal Health Business, which was merged with Vets First Choice (VFC).

On August 13, 2019, before the market opened, Covetrus reported a net loss of $0.09 per share for the second quarter of 2019, well below analyst estimates of $0.17 in net income per share. Additionally, the Company also revealed difficulties integrating the platforms and disclosed increased spending to eliminate obligations to Henry Schein as part of the spin-off agreement.

On this news, the Company’s share price fell $9.30, or 40%, to close at $13.89 per share on August 13, 2019, thereby injuring investors.
