SHAREHOLDER ALERT: Bronstein, Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC Reminds Investors With Losses Exceeding $500K of Class Action Against 22nd Century Group, Inc. (XXII) and Lead Plaintiff Deadline -- March 22, 2019

NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / February 22, 2019 / Bronstein, Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC reminds investors that a class action lawsuit has been filed against 22nd Century Group, Inc. (''22nd Century'' or the ''Company'') (XXII) and certain of its officers, on behalf of shareholders who purchased or otherwise acquired 22nd Century securities from February 18, 2016 through October 25, 2018, inclusive (the ''Class Period''). Such investors are encouraged to join this case by visiting the firm's site: www.bgandg.com/xxii.

This class action seeks to recover damages against Defendants for alleged violations of the federal securities laws under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.

The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period Defendants made materially false and misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) 22nd Century's stock was prone to manipulation through paid stock promotions; (2) such conduct would subject 22nd Century to heightened regulatory scrutiny by the Securities and Exchange Commission (the ''SEC''); and (3) consequently, 22nd Century's public statements were materially false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis at all relevant times.

A class action lawsuit has already been filed. If you wish to review a copy of the Complaint you can visit the firm's site: www.bgandg.com/xxii or you may contact Peretz Bronstein, Esq. or his Investor Relations Analyst, Yael Hurwitz of Bronstein, Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC at 212-697-6484. If you suffered a loss in 22nd Century you have until March 22, 2019 to request that the Court appoint you as lead plaintiff. Your ability to share in any recovery doesn't require that you serve as a lead plaintiff.
