NEW YORK, Dec. 17, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities law firm, reminds investors in Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd. ("Teva" or the "Company") (NYSE: TEVA) of the January 2, 2017 deadline to seek the role of lead plaintiff in a federal securities class action lawsuit filed against the Company and certain officers.
The lawsuit has been filed in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California on behalf of all those who purchased American Depositary Shares ("ADSs") of Teva between February 10, 2015 and November 3, 2016 (the "Class Period"). The case, Galmi v. Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Limited et al, No. 2:16-cv-08259 was filed on November 6, 2016.
The lawsuit focuses on whether the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws by failing to disclose that the Company had engaged in activity that would prompt a Department of Justice ("DOJ") antitrust investigation that could lead to potential criminal charges against the Company.
Specifically, on August 4, 2016, the Company filed a Form 6-K with the Securities Exchange Commission disclosing that the company's subsidiary, Teva USA, received two subpoenas by a government investigations relating to Teva's pricing and marketing of certain products. Then, on November 3, 2016, Bloomberg published the article "U.S. Charges inGeneric-Drug Probe to Be Filed by Year End" which discussed the DOJ's two year investigation of suspected price collusion by several pharmaceutical companies. The article includes Teva among the companies being investigated and also states that the investigation will likely result in prosecutors filing criminal charges by the end of the year.
After the announcement, Teva's share price fell from $43.33 per share on November 2, 2016 to a closing price of $39.30 on November 3, 2016—a $4.03 or a 9.3% drop.
