NEW YORK, Aug. 13, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Pomerantz LLP is investigating claims on behalf of investors of STAAR Surgical Company ("STAAR" or the "Company"). Such investors are advised to contact Robert S. Willoughby at  newaction@pomlaw.com or 888-476-6529, ext. 7980.

On August 11, 2020, research firm J Capital published a report that called into question STAAR's representations with respect to its purported success in the Chinese market, accusing the Company of overstating its sales in China by at least one-third (or $21.6 million).  Citing over 75 interviews with former employees, site visits to China and Switzerland, and an extensive review of public documents, the J Capital report asserted that STAAR has reported fake sales revenues by overstating sales and then marking up actual marketing costs to hide "phantom" revenue.  

On this news, STAAR's stock price fell $3.17 per share, or 6.16%, to close at $48.25 per share on August 11, 2020.
