On August 23, 2017, PetMed Express, Inc. today issued the following statement in response to market activity in its common stock. A false and defamatory “report” was published today by Aurelius Value. We believe that this “report” was intended to severely manipulate our stock price downward in support of short sellers. PetMed Express, Inc. categorically denies the allegations and its implications. We are in the process of reporting this manipulation to the appropriate regulators. While the Company dispenses Tramadol and Gabapentin, which represent less than 1% of annual revenue, it is done exclusively to valid prescriptions from veterinarians for the treatment of animals only. PetMed Express, Inc. will defend itself vigorously against these false allegations, and is also reviewing all legal options at its disposal to hold the author(s) of this article responsible for the baseless attack which has, as of this press release, caused its stock to decrease substantially. Shareholders are cautioned against reacting to the false statements being made. Our financial statements have been and are routinely audited; and we reiterate that we stand behind the integrity of our financial statements and SEC filings.

A copy of this press release is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.
