According to the complaint, Lannett develops, manufactures, packages, markets and distributes solid oral (tablets and capsules), extended release, topical, and oral solution finished dosage forms of drugs that address a wide range of therapeutic areas. At all relevant times, Lannett had an exclusivity agreement with its primary supplier, Jerome Stevens Pharmaceuticals (“JSP”), owned and operated by the Steinlauf family, set to expire on March 23, 2019. JSP’s products have historically accounted for at least one-third of Lannett’s sales.
The Class Period commences on February 7, 2018, when Lannett issued a press release announcing the company’s financial and operating results for the second fiscal quarter ended December 31, 2017.
The complaint alleges that on August 20, 2018, prior to the market opening, Lannett issued a press release stating, in part, “that its distribution agreement with Jerome Stevens Pharmaceuticals (JSP), which expires on March 23, 2019, will not be renewed.”
Following this news, Lannett’s share price fell $8.15, or 60.3%, to close at $5.35 on August 20, 2018.
The complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, the defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (i) Lannett faced a substantial risk of the loss of its exclusivity agreement with JSP; (ii) accordingly, Lannett’s reported revenues were unsustainable; and (iii) as a result, Lannett’s public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.
If you are a member of the class described above, you may no later than October 26, 2018 move the Court to serve as lead plaintiff of the class, if you so choose.
A lead plaintiff is a representative party that acts on behalf of other class members in directing the litigation. In order to be appointed lead plaintiff, the Court must determine that the class member’s claim is typical of the claims of other class members, and that the class member will adequately represent the class. Your ability to share in any recovery is not, however, affected by the decision whether or not to serve as a lead plaintiff. Any member of the purported class may move the court to serve as a lead plaintiff through counsel of their choice, or may choose to do nothing and remain an inactive class member.
