Shareholder Class Action Filed Against Immucor, Inc. by the Law Firm of Barroway Topaz Kessler Meltzer & Check, LLP
Date:9/22/2009

e prices for blood reagents and related medical equipment in the U.S. market; (3) that the Company's revenues had been significantly increased through the employment of such unlawful business practices; (4) that, as a result, the Company's financial statements were false and misleading at all relevant times; (5) that such unlawful business practices, when they were discovered, would initiate an investigation by the federal authorities into the Company's business practices; (6) that the Company lacked adequate internal and financial controls; and (7) that, as a result of the foregoing, the Company's statements about its financial well-being and future business prospects were lacking in any reasonable basis when made.

On April 24, 2009, the Company shocked investors when it announced that it had received a grand jury subpoena from the United States Department of Justice, Antitrust Division ("DOJ") requesting documents from September 1, 2000 through the present regarding an investigation into potential violations of the federal criminal antitrust laws in the blood reagents industry. The DOJ investigation of Immucor follows a Federal Trade Commission ("FTC") investigation of the Company that began in or about October 2007 and which focused on whether Immucor violated the federal antitrust laws through three acquisitions that it made between 1996 and 1999, and whether the Company had engaged in unfair methods of competition by restricting price competition. Upon the release of the news that the DOJ was investigating Immucor and the blood reagents industry, and that Immucor had received the grand jury subpoena related to the investigation, the Company's shares fell $5.63 per share, or almost 27%, to close on April 24, 2009 at $15.35 per share.
