(“Henry Schein” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: HSIC) securities between March 7, 2013, and February 12, 2018, inclusive (the “Class Period”).

On February 12, 2018, the Federal Trade Commission (“FTC”) announced that it filed a complaint against the country’s three largest dental supply companies, Henry Schein, Benco Dental Supply Company (“Benco”), and Patterson Companies, Inc. (“Patterson”), alleging violations of U.S. antitrust laws by conspiring to refuse to provide discounts to or otherwise serve buying groups representing dental practitioners. On this news, Henry Schein’s share price fell $4.79, or 6.63%, to close at $67.39 on February 13, 2018.

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 failed to disclose that: (i) the Company conspired with other dental supply companies to violate federal antitrust laws; (ii) discovery of the foregoing conduct would subject the Company to heightened regulatory scrutiny and potential criminal sanctions; and (iii) that as a result of the foregoing, Henry Schein’s public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.

If you purchased shares of Henry Schein during the Class Period you may move the Court no later than May 7, 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.
