Deadline Reminder: The Law Offices of Howard G. Smith Reminds Investors of Looming Deadline in the Class Action Lawsuit Against Zogenix, Inc.

May 2, 2019

BENSALEM, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 2, 2019--Law Offices of Howard G. Smith reminds investors of the upcoming  June 11, 2019  deadline to file a lead plaintiff motion in the class action filed on behalf of investors who purchased Zogenix, Inc. (“Zogenix” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ:  ZGNX ) securities between February 6, 2019 and April 8, 2019, inclusive (the “Class Period”).

Investors suffering losses on their Zogenix investments are encouraged to contact the Law Offices of Howard G. Smith to discuss their legal rights in this class action at 888-638-4847 or by email to howardsmith@howardsmithlaw.com.

On April 8, 2019, Zogenix announced that it received a refusal to file letter from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) regarding Zogenix’s new drug application (“NDA”) for FINTEPLA, Zogenix’s proposed treatment for seizures associated with Dravet syndrome. The FDA determined that the NDA was not sufficiently complete to permit a substantive review because certain non-clinical studies were not submitted to allow assessment of the chronic administration of fenfluramine, and the application contained an incorrect version of a clinical dataset.

On this news, shares of Zogenix fell $11.89 or nearly 23% to close at $39.96 per share on April 9, 2019, thereby injuring investors.

The complaint filed in this class action alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and/or misleading statements, as well as failed to disclose material adverse facts about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects. Specifically, Defendants failed to disclose to investors: (1) Zogenix’s NDA for FINTEPLA contained inadequate non-clinical data and an incorrect version of a clinical dataset; (2) consequently, Zogenix’s NDA for FINTEPLA was unlikely to gain FDA approval; and (3) as a result, the Company’s public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.

If you purchased shares of Zogenix during the Class Period you may move the Court no later than  June 11, 2019  to ask the Court to appoint you as lead plaintiff if you meet certain legal requirements. To be a member of the class action you need not take any action at this time; you may retain counsel of your choice or take no action and remain an absent member of the class action. If you wish to learn more about this class action, or if you have any questions concerning this announcement or your rights or interests with respect to these matters, please contact Howard G. Smith, Esquire, of Law Offices of Howard G. Smith, 3070 Bristol Pike, Suite 112, Bensalem, Pennsylvania 19020 by telephone at (215) 638-4847, toll-free at (888) 638-4847, or by email to  howardsmith@howardsmithlaw.com, or visit our website at www.howardsmithlaw.com.
