During the class period Defendants are alleged to have downplayed the risk that Lannett’s exclusivity agreement with its primary supplier (Jerome Stevens Pharmaceuticals, or “JSP”) would not be renewed.
Then, on August 20, 2018, Defendants announced JSP did not renew the agreement. This news drove the price of Lannett shares down $8.15, down over 60%, to close at $5.35 that day.
“We’re focused on investors’ losses, whether JSP’s non-renewal was related to several Attorneys Generals’ price-fixing allegations against Lannett, and possible impairment charges,” said Hagens Berman partner Reed Kathrein.
