About the Lawsuit
Allergan and certain of its executives are charged with failing to disclose material information during the Class Period, violating federal securities laws.
The Complaint asserts claims under Sections 14(e), 20A and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 relating to the attempted acquisition of Allergan by Valeant and its affiliates in 2014 in which certain Defendants traded on material non-public information relating to the proposed acquisition, which caused investors to sell call options and equity forward contracts at artificially deflated prices and purchase put options at artificially inflated prices.
