NEW YORK, June 28, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Pomerantz LLP announces that a class action lawsuit has been filed against Inovalon Holdings, Inc. (“Inovalon” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ:INOV) and certain of its officers. The class action, filed in United States District Court, Southern District of New York, and docketed under 16-cv-05065, is on behalf of a class consisting of all persons or entities who purchased Inovalon Class A common stock pursuant or traceable to the Registration Statement and Prospectus (collectively, the “Registration Statement”) issued in connection with Inovalon’s February 12, 2015 initial public stock offering (the “IPO” or “Offering”). The action asserts strict liability claims under §§11 and 15 of the Securities Act of 1933.
If you are a shareholder who purchased Inovalon securities during the Class Period, you have until August 23, 2016 to seek appointment as Lead Plaintiff for the class.

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 Inovalon business, operations, and prospects. Specifically, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (i) the Registration Statement for the Company’s IPO was negligently prepared and, as a result, contained untrue statements of material fact and omitted to state material facts both required by governing regulations and necessary to make the statements made not inaccurate statements of material fact; and (ii) the Individual Defendants approved the said Registration Statement.
On February 10, 2015, Inovalon filed its final amendment to the Registration Statement, which registered 25,555,555 shares of Inovalon common stock for public sale. The Securities and Exchange Commission declared the Registration Statement effective on February 11, 2015. On or about February 12, 2015, the Company priced the IPO at $27 per share and filed the final Prospectus for the IPO, which forms part of the Registration Statement. On February 18, 2015, the Company completed the IPO, which, upon the underwriters' exercise of their option to purchase additional shares, issued and sold a total of 25,364,803 shares, generating over $684 million in gross proceeds. However, since the IPO, Inovalon's stock has imploded, falling from its first day trading high of $33.75 to close at $17.39 on February 2, 2016.
