NEW YORK, April 5, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Pomerantz Grossman Hufford Dahlstrom & Gross LLP is investigating claims on behalf of investors of Impax Laboratories Inc. ("Impax" or the "Company") who purchased Impax common stock between June 6, 2011 and March 04, 2013 (the "Class Period"). Such investors are advised to contact Robert S. Willoughby at email@example.com or 888-476-6529, ext. 237.

On March 4, 2013, Impax announced that the FDA had completed an inspection of the Company's Hayward, California facility, finding twelve problems at the facility that the Company needed to correct.
