The information contained on this web page is only a summary of information presented in more detail in the Notice of
Proposed Class Action Settlement (the “Notice”), which you can access by clicking here .  Since this website is just a summary, you should review the Notice for additional details.

Court-appointed Lead Plaintiff, Barbara Forman, on behalf of herself and all Settlement Class Members, have reached a proposed settlement of the Action for $2.1 million in cash that, if approved, will resolve all claims in the Litigation (the “Settlement”).

If you are a member of the Class, your rights will be affected and you may be eligible for a payment from the Settlement, unless you timely request to be excluded.  The Class consists of:

all persons or entities who purchased or otherwise acquired securities of Meridian Bioscience, Inc. (“Meridian” or the “Company”) between March 24, 2016 and October 23, 2017, inclusive (the “Class Period”), and were damaged thereby, except for certain persons and entities who are excluded from the Class by definition (see paragraph 6 of the Notice ) or who request exclusion pursuant to the instructions set forth in the Notice (see paragraph 14 of the Notice ).

Please read the Notice  to fully understand your rights and options. Copies of the Notice  and Claim Form  can be found on the menu at the left of this page.

Payments to eligible claimants will be made only if the Court approves the Settlement and a plan of allocation, and only after any appeals are resolved, and after the completion of all claims processing. Please be patient, as this process will take some time to complete.
