The Law Offices of Howard G. Smith Reminds Investors of June 25th Deadline in the Class Action Lawsuit Against ACETO Corporation (ACET)

Law Offices of Howard G. Smith reminds investors of the June 25,
2018 deadline to file a lead plaintiff motion in the class action
filed on behalf of investors that purchased ACETO Corporation (“ACETO”
or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: ACET)
securities between February 1, 2018 and April 18, 2018, inclusive
(the “Class Period”). ACETO investors have until June 25, 2018 to
file a lead plaintiff motion.

Investors suffering losses on their ACETO investments are encouraged to
contact the Law Offices of Howard G. Smith to discuss their legal rights
in this class action at 888-638-4847 or by email to howardsmith@howardsmithlaw.com.

The Complaint filed in this class action alleges that throughout the
Class Period, Defendants made materially false and misleading statements
regarding the Company’s business, operational and compliance policies.
Specifically, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or
failed to disclose that: (i) due to undisclosed competitive and pricing
pressures, ACETO was unlikely to meet the performance metrics the
Company provided to its investors as financial guidance; (ii)
accordingly, ACETO’s financial guidance was overstated; and (iii) as a
result of the foregoing, ACETO’s financial statements and Defendants’
statements about ACETO’s business, operations, and prospects, were
materially false and misleading at all relevant times.

On April 18, 2018, ACETO issued a press release announcing that its
financial guidance should no longer be relied upon, that the Company
anticipates recording non-cash intangible asset impairment charges in
the range of $230 million to $260 million, and that Edward Borkowski
resigned as the Company’s CFO.

On this news, ACETO’s share price fell $4.74 per share, or 64%, to close
at $2.66 per share on April 19, 2018, thereby injuring investors.

If you purchased shares of ACETO during the Class Period you may move
the Court no later than June 25, 2018 to ask the Court to
appoint you as lead plaintiff. To be a member of the Class you need not
take any action at this time; you may retain counsel of your choice or
take no action and remain an absent member of the Class. If you wish
to learn more about this action, or if you have any questions concerning
this announcement or your rights or interests with respect to these
matters, please contact Howard G. Smith, Esquire, of Law Offices of
