The filed Complaint alleges that on December 21, 2018, Perrigo issued a Form 8-K disclosing that it had received an audit finding letter from the Irish tax authorities on October 30, 2018 stating “that IP sales transactions… including the sale of Tysabri®, were not part of the trade of Elan Pharma and therefore should have been treated as chargeable gains subject to an effective 33% tax rate, rather than the 12.5% tax rate applicable to trading income.” Although the Company had revealed to investors on November 8, 2018 that it had received the audit finding letter, it did not disclose material details.

Following the news on December 21, 2018, Perrigo stock dropped roughly 25%.
