Glancy Prongay & Murray Reminds Investors of Looming Deadline in the Class Action Lawsuit Against Akorn, Inc.

LOS ANGELES, April 22, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Glancy Prongay & Murray LLP (“GPM”) reminds investors of the April 22, 2019 deadline to file a lead plaintiff motion in the class action filed on behalf of investors who purchased Akorn, Inc. (“Akorn” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: AKRX) securities between August 1, 2018 and January 8, 2019, inclusive (the “Class Period”). Akorn investors have until April 22, 2019 to file a lead plaintiff motion in this class action.

If you wish to learn more about this action, or if you have any questions concerning this announcement or your rights or interests with respect to these matters, please contact Lesley Portnoy, Esquire, at 310-201-9150, Toll-Free at 888-773-9224, or by email to shareholders@glancylaw.com, or visit our website at www.glancylaw.com.

On January 9, 2019, Akorn announced that it had received a warning letter “dated January 4, from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) related to an inspection of its Decatur, Illinois manufacturing facility in April and May of 2018.” The warning letter from the FDA detailed a laundry list of “significant violations of current good manufacturing practice (CGMP) regulations for finished pharmaceuticals.” On this news, shares of Akorn fell $0.46 per share or over 11.6% to close at $3.48 per share on January 9, 2019, thereby injuring investors.

The complaint filed in this class action alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and misleading statements regarding the Company’s business, operational and compliance policies. Specifically, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) Akorn’s management misled investors concerning the severity of Akorn’s manufacturing violations at its Decatur, Illinois facility; (2) Akorn’s responses to the FDA’s Form 483—which contained a list of observations made by the FDA during its inspection of Akorn’s Decatur, Illinois facility in April and May 2018—would be deemed inadequate by the FDA; (3) Akorn repeatedly failed to correct manufacturing violations at this facility; (4) the foregoing would subject Akorn to heightened regulatory scrutiny by the FDA; and (5) as a result, Akorn’s public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.
