NEW YORK, Nov. 16, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Gainey & McKenna announces that a class action lawsuit has been filed in the United States District Court for the District of Connecticut, on behalf of investors who purchased the securities of Blyth, Inc. ("Blyth" or the "Company") (NYSE:BTH) between March 14, 2012 and November 6, 2012, inclusive (the "Class Period"). The action is brought against Blyth and certain of its officers and directors for violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.
The Complaint alleges that Defendants made false or misleading statements about sales and prospects of ViSalus, Inc., in which Blyth owns a controlling interest. As the true facts concerning ViSalus became known to the market, the Company's stock price plummeted, losing more than $462 million in market capitalization.
