BENSALEM, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb 5, 2019--Law Offices of Howard G. Smith announces that a class action lawsuit has been filed on behalf of investors that purchased Alkermes plc, Inc. (NASDAQ: ALKS ) (“Alkermes” or the “Company”) securities between  February 17, 2017 and November 1, 2018, inclusive (the “Class Period”). Alkermes investors have until  February 25, 2019 to file a lead plaintiff motion.

The Complaint filed in this class action alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) had advised Alkermes to follow a certain protocol in connection with its New Drug Application submission for ALKS 5461; (2) Alkermes had failed to follow that protocol; (3) consequently, an FDA advisory committee voted 21 to 2 against the approval of ALKS 5461; and (4) as a result, Alkermes’ public statements were materially false and/or misleading at all relevant times.

If you purchased shares of Alkermes, have information or would like to learn more about these claims, or have any questions concerning this announcement or your rights or interests with respect to these matters, please contact Howard G.
