The Law Offices of Howard G. Smith Reminds Investors of Looming Deadline in the Class Action Lawsuit against Rockwell Medical, Inc. (RMTI)

September 18, 2018

BENSALEM, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep 18, 2018--Law Offices of Howard G. Smith reminds investors of the September 25, 2018  deadline to file a lead plaintiff motion in the class action filed on behalf of investors that purchased Rockwell Medical, Inc. (“Rockwell” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: RMTI ) securities between November 8, 2017, and June 26, 2018, inclusive (the “Class Period”). Rockwell investors have until  September 25, 2018  to file a lead plaintiff motion.

Investors suffering losses on their Rockwell investments are encouraged to contact the Law Offices of Howard G. Smith to discuss their legal rights in this class action at 888-638-4847 or by email to howardsmith@howardsmithlaw.com.

On June 27, 2018, Rockwell disclosed that its auditor resigned, and that the auditor claimed, among other things, that the estimated reserves in Rockwell’s Form 10-Q for the period ended March 31, 2018 were incorrect.

On this news, Rockwell’s share price fell $0.85, or more than 16%, to close at $4.41 on June 28, 2018, thereby injuring investors.

The Complaint filed in this class action alleges that the Company made false and misleading statements to the market. Specifically, the complaint alleges that Rockwell Medical had knowledge that the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services would not pursue the Company’s plan for reimbursement for Triferic; the Company’s estimated reserves on form 10-Q for the quarter ending March 31, 2018, were misstated; the Company suffered from material weakness in controls for financial reporting; and that Robert L. Chioini, Rockwell’s former Chief Executive Officer, failed to inform the Company’s auditors, corporate counsel, and independent board members with important information about Triferic.

If you purchased shares of Rockwell during the Class Period you may move the Court no later than  September 25, 2018  to ask the Court to appoint you as lead plaintiff. To be a member of the Class you need not take any action at this time; you may retain counsel of your choice or take no action and remain an absent member of the Class. If you wish to learn more about this action, or if you have any questions concerning this announcement or your rights or interests with respect to these matters, please contact Howard G. Smith, Esquire, of Law Offices of Howard G. Smith, 3070 Bristol Pike, Suite 112, Bensalem, Pennsylvania 19020 by telephone at (215) 638-4847, toll-free at (888) 638-4847, or by email to  howardsmith@howardsmithlaw.com, or visit our website at  www.howardsmithlaw.com.
