Investor Sues QuadraMed Corp. for Securities Fraud, Berman DeValerio Pease Tabacco Burt & Pucillo Announces -- QMDCE

Boston, Massachusetts, UNITED STATES

SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 1, 2002 (PRIMEZONE) -- An investor filed a class action against QuadraMed Corp. (Nasdaq:QMDCE) and two of its top officers, accusing the healthcare information and technology company of defrauding its shareholders, Berman DeValerio Pease Tabacco Burt & Pucillo said.

The complaint was filed October 31, 2002 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California. It seeks damages for violations of federal securities laws on behalf of all investors who bought QuadraMed securities from May 3, 1999 through October 15, 2002 (the Class Period).

Berman DeValerio has represented investors in class actions for 20 years. To review the complaint and learn more about becoming a lead plaintiff, please visit the firm's website at

The lawsuit claims that the defendants artificially inflated the company's stock price by publicly issuing false and misleading financial information about QuadraMed's revenues and earnings during the Class Period.

According to the complaint, the truth about QuadraMed began to emerge on August 12, 2002, when the company said it would restate its financial results for the fiscal years 2000 and 2001 and for the period ending March 31, 2002. The news grew worse for shareholders on October 16, 2002, when QuadraMed revealed that it would also restate results for fiscal year1999. In the announcement, the company explained that the restatement relates to issues involving revenue recognition and deferral on certain software licenses, reductions in revenue recorded in 2000 and 2001 that should have been recorded in 1999, and certain nonrecurring charges and impairment of assets recorded in 2000 that should have been recorded in 1999.

The price of QuadraMed stock is now 80% lower than its trading range during the Class Period.
