WAYNE, Pa., Jan. 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Ryan & Maniskas, LLP announces that a class action lawsuit has been filed in the United States District Court for the United States District Court for the Central District of California on behalf of purchasers of OSI Systems, Inc. ("OSI" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: OSIS) common stock during the period between January 24, 2012 and December 6, 2013, inclusive (the "Class Period").
For more information regarding this class action suit, please contact Ryan & Maniskas, LLP (Richard A. Maniskas, Esquire) toll-free at (877) 316-3218 or by email at [email protected] or visit: www.rmclasslaw.com/cases/osis.
OSI Systems produces medical monitoring and anesthesia systems; security and inspection systems; and lasers, optics, and optoelectronic components.
The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and misleading statements regarding the Company's business, operational and compliance policies. Specifically, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose: (1) the Company manipulated operational test of its Advanced Imaging Technology by selectively picking the best sensors, causing the test not to be representative of the scanners already deployed at airports; (2) the Company's products raised strong privacy concerns and were subject to disqualification for use in airport security checkpoints; (3) the Company manufactured its products with parts that directly violated contracts with the TSA, thereby risking cancellation of the contracts; and, (4) as a result of the above, the Company's financial statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.
On November 14, 2012, after the market closed, various news sources, including Bloomberg News reported that a key congressman disclosed the Company may have committed fraud by "knowingly manipulating" the results of an operational test in connection with the Company's Advanced Imaging Technology ("AIT"), otherwise commonly known as body scanners. Moreover, Bloomberg News cited to an executive vice president of the Company who revealed that its Rapiscan unit had received a so-called "show cause" letter from the Transportation Security Administration ("TSA") on November 9, 2012, seeking detailed information about the testing of technology used in its body scanners. On this news, OSI Systems shares declined $21.40 per share or 28%, to close at $54.89 per share on November 15, 2012.
On January 22, 2013, the TSA reported that it had ended its contract with the Company, and that OSI Systems would have to bear the costs of removing all Rapiscan full body scanners from airports, because TSA administrators concluded the company could not meet a congressional deadline to produce generic passenger images. On this news, the Company's shares fell $14.03 per share to $57.33, a one day decline of over 19%.
Thereafter, on December 6, 2013, the United States Transportation Security Administration canceled a $60 million contract for the company's carry-on baggage screening equipment, with the possibility of a future ban on contracting with the Department of Homeland Security. The reason for the canceled contract and future ban is that a part in the company's baggage scanning machine was manufactured in China, violating TSA security policies. On this news, the Company's shares fell $21.69 per share to $43.63, a decline of over 33% on December 6, 2013.
If you are a member of the class, you may, no later than February 10, 2014, request that the Court appoint you as lead plaintiff of the class. A lead plaintiff is a representative party that acts on behalf of other class members in directing the litigation. In order to be appointed lead plaintiff, the Court must determine that the class member's claim is typical of the claims of other class members, and that the class member will adequately represent the class. Under certain circumstances, one or more class members may together serve as "lead plaintiff." Your ability to share in any recovery is not, however, affected by the decision whether or not to serve as a lead plaintiff. You may retain Ryan & Maniskas, LLP or other counsel of your choice, to serve as your counsel in this action.

The Internet of Things is a misnomer. That implies that everything is on the Internet, and that simply should not be - especially for things that are blurring the line between medical devices that stimulate like a pacemaker and quantified self-sensors like a pedometer or pulse tracker. The mesh of things that we manage must be segmented into zones of trust for sensing data, transmitting data, receiving command and control administrative changes, and peer-to-peer mesh messaging. In his session a...

The web app is Agile. The REST API is Agile. The testing and planning are Agile. But alas, Data infrastructures certainly are not. Once an application matures, changing the shape or indexing scheme of data often forces at best a top down planning exercise and at worst includes schema changes which force downtime. The time has come for a new approach that fundamentally advances the agility of distributed data infrastructures. Come learn about a new solution to the problems faced by software orga...

The OpenStack cloud operating system includes Trove, a database abstraction layer. Rather than applications connecting directly to a specific type of database, they connect to Trove, which in turn connects to one or more specific databases. One target database is Postgres Plus Cloud Database, which includes its own RESTful API. Trove was originally developed around MySQL, whose interfaces are significantly less complicated than those of the Postgres cloud database. In his session at 16th Cloud...

While great strides have been made relative to the video aspects of remote collaboration, audio technology has basically stagnated. Typically all audio is mixed to a single monaural stream and emanates from a single point, such as a speakerphone or a speaker associated with a video monitor. This leads to confusion and lack of understanding among participants especially regarding who is actually speaking. Spatial teleconferencing introduces the concept of acoustic spatial separation between confe...

There is no question that the cloud is where businesses want to host data. Until recently hypervisor virtualization was the most widely used method in cloud computing. Recently virtual containers have been gaining in popularity, and for good reason. In the debate between virtual machines and containers, the latter have been seen as the new kid on the block – and like other emerging technology have had some initial shortcomings. However, the container space has evolved drastically since coming on...
