This investigation is for anyone who acquired securities in Avinger, Inc. (NASDAQ: AVGR) from January 30, 2015 through present.
The Law Offices of Howard G. Smith believes that the Company and certain of its executives violated federal law. Specifically, the Law Offices of Howard G. Smith believes that, in the Prospectus to the Company's IPO, the Company misled investors regarding its financial condition. More specifically, the Law Offices of Howard G. Smith believes that the Company misled investors to believe that its Pantheris product would see wider use than the Company knew to be the case.
On July 12, 2016, the Company lowered its fiscal year 2016 revenue guidance from a range of $25 million to $30 million down to a range of $19 million to $23 million noting that the Company “experienced lower than expected utilization of Pantheris in the second quarter.” On this news, the price of the Company's stock dropped precipitously on unusually heavy trading volume. On April 10, 2017, the Company announced poor first quarter results, admitting to problems with commercialization and reliability of its Pantheris product and also that it was laying off 33% of its workforce. On this news, the price of the Company's stock again dropped precipitously on unusually heavy trading volume. The stock trades today much lower than its public offering price of $13.00 per share.
