NEW YORK, July 11, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Levi & Korsinsky, LLP announces that class action lawsuits have commenced on behalf of shareholders of the following publicly-traded companies. Shareholders interested in serving as lead plaintiff have until the deadlines listed to petition the court; further details about the cases can be found at the links provided.
MEDNAX, Inc. (NYSE:MD)
Class Period: February 4, 2016 – July 27, 2017
Lead Plaintiff Deadline: September 10, 2018
The complaint alleges that throughout the class period Defendants issued materially false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) the Company’s business model was not sustainable; and (2) Mednax’s growth was in fact based upon suppressing physician compensation and enforcing non-compete agreements to deter physician defections.
On April 20, 2017, Mednax announced negative financial results for the first quarter of 2017. Then on July 28, 2017, during an earnings call, Mednax announced that the Company failed to complete any acquisitions of anesthesiologist practices during the second quarter and disclosed that any future acquisitions were unlikely. Following this news, shares of Mednax fell from a close of $56.49 on July 27, 2017, to a close of $47.73 per share the following day.

Symantec Corp. (NASDAQ:SYMC)
Class Period: May 20, 2017 – May 10, 2018
Lead Plaintiff Deadline: July 16, 2018
The complaint alleges that Symantec’s internal controls over financial reporting were materially weak and deficient; Symantec’s later disclosed “reporting of certain Non-GAAP measures including those that could impact executive compensation programs” would lead to heightened regulatory scrutiny by the SEC; and as a result, Symantec’s public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times. On May 10, 2018, Symantec announced the commencement of an internal investigation “in connection with concerns raised by a former employee.”
