INVESTOR ALERT: Kirby McInerney LLP Reminds Investors That a Class Action Lawsuit Has Been Filed Against AxoGen, Inc. and Encourages Investors to Contact the Firm Before March 11

February 2, 2019

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb 2, 2019--The law firm of Kirby McInerney LLP announces that a class action lawsuit has been filed in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida on behalf of those who acquired AxoGen, Inc. (“AxoGen” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: AXGN ) securities during the period from August 7, 2017 through December 18, 2018 (the “Class Period”). Investors have until March 11, 2019 to apply to the Court to be appointed as lead plaintiff in the lawsuit.

The lawsuit alleges that AxoGen failed to disclose that: (i) the Company aggressively increased prices to mask lower sales; (ii) the Company’s pricing alienated customers and threatened the Company’s future growth; (iii) the Company was dependent on a small number of surgeons whom the Company paid to generate sales; (iv) the Company offered purchase incentives to sales representatives to encourage channel stuffing; (v) the Company’s sales representatives were encouraged to backdate revenue to artificially inflate metrics; and (vi) the Company’s key operating metrics, such as number of active accounts, were overstated.

Following the publication of a report by Seligman Investments alleging channel stuffing and the overstatement of active accounts, the price of AxoGen shares fell by $6.17, or approximately 22.4%, to close at $21.36 on December 18, 2018.
