NEW YORK, Oct. 27, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Attorney Advertising -- Bronstein, Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC notifies investors that a class action lawsuit has been filed against Taro Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd. ("Taro" or the "Company") (NYSE: TARO) and certain of its officers. The class action is on behalf of a class consisting of all persons or entities who purchased Taro securities between July 3, 2014 through September 9, 2016, inclusive (the "Class Period").
This class action seeks to recover damages against Defendants for alleged violations of the federal securities laws under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the "Exchange Act").
The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) since 2014 Taro Pharmaceutical has conspired together with other pharmaceutical companies to artificially inflate the price of generic products; (2) the abovementioned collusion violated federal antitrust laws; (3) consequently, Taro Pharmaceutical's revenues during the Class Period were the result of illegal conduct; and (4) therefore, Taro's public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.
On September 9, 2016, Taro revealed that it and two of its senior officers received grand jury subpoenas from the United States Department of Justice, Antitrust Division, in connection with a federal antitrust investigation into generic drug pricing. Then on October 17, 2016, NECA-IBEW Welfare Trust Fund filed an antitrust class action lawsuit against Taro and several other pharmaceutical companies alleging involvement in the price-fixing of Clobetasol since 2014 in violation of the U.S. antitrust laws.
