Faruqi & Faruqi is investigating allegations that ZELTIQ executives misled investors by failing to disclose material information about the delayed sale of Company products and increased competition from a competitor's Liposonix business.
On March 6, 2012, shares of ZELTIQ plummeted after the Company announced fourth quarter 2011 sales and profits that fell well below analyst estimates. ZELTIQ reported a loss per share of $0.22, while analysts had been expecting a per share loss of only $0.09. In addition, ZELTIQ predicted 2012 sales in the range of $90 million to $94 million, well below analyst expectations of $114 million.
In the days following this extremely disappointing news, ZELTIQ's stock price lost nearly 47% of its value falling from $11.11 per share on March 5, 2012, to only $5.66 per share on March 8, 2012.
