The investigation on behalf of current long term investors in ABIOMED, Inc. (NASDAQ:ABMD) stocks concerns whether certain ABIOMED officers and directors breached their fiduciary duties. The investigation by a law firm comes after a lawsuit was filed against ABIOMED, Inc. over alleged securities laws violations. The plaintiff in that lawsuit alleges that Defendants touted ABIOMED’s financial strength and future prospects while in reality these statements were materially false and misleading when made because the United States Food and Drug Administration ("FDA") repeatedly warned ABIOMED, Inc. that its promotional materials contained inappropriate claims regarding the Impella 2.5 catheter and suggested improper off-label uses. The plaintiff claims that defendants repeatedly assured investors that they had addressed the FDA's concerns and that the matter was resolved.
