INVESTOR ALERT: Brower Piven Encourages Shareholders Who Have Losses In Excess Of $100,000 From Investment In Sinovac Biotech Ltd. To Contact Brower Piven Before The Lead Plaintiff Deadline In Class Action Lawsuit

STEVENSON, Md.--()--The securities litigation law firm of Brower Piven, A Professional Corporation, announces that a class action lawsuit has been commenced in the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey on behalf of purchasers of Sinovac Biotech Ltd. (Nasdaq: SVA) (“Sinovac” or the “Company”) securities during the period between April 30, 2013 and May 16, 2017, inclusive (the “Class Period”). Investors who wish to become proactively involved in the litigation have until September 1, 2017 to seek appointment as lead plaintiff.

If you wish to choose counsel to represent you and the class, you must apply to be appointed lead plaintiff and be selected by the Court. The lead plaintiff will direct the litigation and participate in important decisions including whether to accept a settlement for the class in the action. The lead plaintiff will be selected from among applicants claiming the largest loss from investment in Sinovac securities during the Class Period. Members of the class will be represented by the lead plaintiff and counsel chosen by the lead plaintiff. No class has yet been certified in the above action.

The complaint accuses the defendants of violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 by virtue of the defendants’ failure to disclose during the Class Period that the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Weidong Yin bribed a member of the Chinese Food and Drug Administration to assist Sinovac’s vaccine clinical trial and approval and that conduct would subject the Company to heightened regulatory scrutiny.

According to the complaint, following a December 21, 2016 report regarding the bribe, a December 23, 2016 announcement that the Company was commencing an internal investigation, a May 1, 2017 announcement that the Company’s annual report will be delayed, and a May 16, 2017 announcement that the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission commenced an enforcement inquiry, the value of Sinovac shares declined significantly.

If you have suffered a loss in excess of $100,000 from investment in Sinovac securities purchased on or after April 30, 2013 and held through the revelation of negative information during and/or at the end of the Class Period and would like to learn more about this lawsuit and your ability to participate as a lead plaintiff, without cost or obligation to you, please visit our website at http://www.browerpiven.com/currentsecuritiescases.html.
