Lannett Accused of Misleading Investors About Its Risk of Losing Major Exclusivity Agreement

According to the complaint, Lannett has an exclusivity agreement with its primary supplier, Jerome Stevens Pharmaceuticals ("JSP"), which is set to expire on March 23, 2019. JSP's products have historically accounted for at least one-third of Lannett's sales. Lannett represented to investors that the company was focused on strengthening its relationship with JSP. It therefore came as a surprise to investors when, on August 20, 2018, Lannett announced that its distribution agreement with JSP would not be renewed. On this news, Lannett's stock plummeted over 60% to close at $5.35 per share that day, and has yet to recover.
