NEW YORK, Aug. 17, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Attorney Advertising -- Bronstein, Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC reminds investors that a class action lawsuit has been filed against ACADIA Pharmaceuticals Inc. (“Acadia” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: ACAD) and certain of its officers, on behalf of shareholders who purchased or otherwise acquired Acadia securities between April 29, 2016 and July 9, 2018, (the “Class Period”). Such investors are encouraged to join this case by visiting the firm’s site: www.bgandg.com/acad.
This class action seeks to recover damages against Defendants for alleged violations of the federal securities laws under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.
The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) adverse events and safety concerns related to NUPLAZID threatened the drug’s initial and continuing FDA approval; (2) ACADIA engaged in business practices likely to attract regulatory scrutiny; and (3) as a result, defendants’ statements about ACADIA’s business, operations, and prospects, were materially false and/or misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.
On April 9, 2018, CNN published an article that questioned whether Acadia’s Nuplazid treatment may have caused the deaths of sick and elderly patients. Following this news Acadia stock dropped $5.03 per share or over 23% to close at $16.50 on April 9, 2018. Then, on July 9, 2018, The Southern Investigative Reporting Foundation reported that that Acadia’s “pursuit of regulatory approval is best described as ‘loophole-centric.’” Following this news Acadia stock dropped $1.21 per share or over 6.7% to close at $16.63 on July 9, 2018.
