LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

National securities law firm Glancy Prongay & Murray LLP (“GPM”) reminds investors of the June 25, 2018 deadline to file a lead plaintiff motion in the class action filed on behalf of investors that purchased ACETO Corporation (“ACETO” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: ACET) securities between February 1, 2018 and April 18, 2018, inclusive (the “Class Period”).

Investors suffering losses on their ACETO investments are encouraged to contact Lesley Portnoy of GPM to discuss their legal rights in this class action at 310-201-9150 or by email to shareholders@glancylaw.com.

The Complaint filed in this class action alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and misleading statements regarding the Company's business, operational and compliance policies. Specifically, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (i) due to undisclosed competitive and pricing pressures, ACETO was unlikely to meet the performance metrics the Company provided to its investors as financial guidance; (ii) accordingly, ACETO's financial guidance was overstated; and (iii) as a result of the foregoing, ACETO's financial statements and Defendants' statements about ACETO's business, operations, and prospects, were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.

On April 18, 2018, ACETO issued a press release announcing that its financial guidance should no longer be relied upon, that the Company anticipates recording non-cash intangible asset impairment charges in the range of $230 million to $260 million, and that Edward Borkowski resigned as the Company’s CFO.

On this news, ACETO’s share price fell $4.74 per share, or 64%, to close at $2.66 per share on April 19, 2018, thereby injuring investors.
