In the complaint, the defendants are alleged to have violated certain
provisions of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Specifically, the
complaint alleges, among other things, that defendants misrepresented
and/or failed to disclose that the Company's Monrovia Facility lacked
sufficient systems and facilities for the manufacture, packing, storage
and installation of the Company's implantable lenses. It also did not
have adequate procedures for documenting complaints, sterility testing,
and maintaining required records. Due to these shortcomings, the
Monrovia Facility was not following current good manufacturing practice
requirements at all relevant times. According to the complaint, on June
30, 2014, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration ("FDA") publicly
released a Warning Letter related to an inspection of the Company's
Monrovia Facility, which occurred on February 10, 2014, and noted
several regulatory violations. Upon release of this letter, the
Company's stock dropped.
