SHAREHOLDER ALERT: Rigrodsky & Long, P.A. Files Class Action Suit Against Nutraceutical International Corporation


WILMINGTON, Del., Aug. 10, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Rigrodsky & Long, P.A. announces that it has filed a class action complaint in the United States District Court for the District of Utah on behalf of holders of Nutraceutical International Corporation ("Nutraceutical") (NASDAQ:NUTR) common stock in connection with the proposed acquisition of Nutraceutical by affiliates of HGGC, LLC ("HGGC") announced on May 22, 2017 (the "Complaint").  The Complaint, which alleges violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 against Nutraceutical, its Board of Directors (the "Board"), and HGGC, is captioned Berg v. Nutraceutical International Corporation, Case No. 17-cv-830 (D. Utah).

If you wish to discuss this action or have any questions concerning this notice or your rights or interests, please contact plaintiff's counsel, Seth D. Rigrodsky or Gina M. Serra at Rigrodsky & Long, P.A., 2 Righter Parkway, Suite 120, Wilmington, DE 19803, by telephone at (888) 969-4242, by e-mail at, or at

On May 21, 2017, Nutraceutical entered into an agreement and plan of merger (the "Merger Agreement") with HGGC.  Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, shareholders of Nutraceutical will receive $41.80 in cash for each share of Nutraceutical stock they own (the "Proposed Transaction").

Among other things, the Complaint alleges that, in an attempt to secure shareholder support for the Proposed Transaction, defendants issued materially incomplete disclosures in a proxy statement (the "Proxy Statement") filed with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission on July 12, 2017.  The Complaint alleges that the Proxy Statement, which recommends that Nutraceutical stockholders vote in favor of the Proposed Transaction, omits material information necessary to enable shareholders to make an informed decision as to how to vote on the Proposed Transaction, including material information with respect to the analyses performed by Nutraceutical's financial advisor and potential conflicts of interest.  The Complaint seeks injunctive and equitable relief and damages on behalf of holders of Nutraceutical common stock. 

If you wish to serve as lead plaintiff, you must move the Court no later than October 9, 2017.  A lead plaintiff is a representative party acting on behalf of other class members in directing the litigation.  Any member of the proposed class may move the Court to serve as lead plaintiff through counsel of their choice, or may choose to do nothing and remain an absent class member.
