According to the complaint, Defendants misled investors about Zogenix's much-anticipated New Drug Application ("NDA") for FINTEPLA®. More specifically, according to the complaint, the NDA (1) contained inadequate non-clinical data and an incorrect version of a clinical dataset, and (2) consequently the NDA was unlikely to gain approval by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration ("FDA").
When, on April 8, 2019 Defendants announced the regulator determined that the NDA was not sufficiently complete to permit a substantive review, the price of Zogenix shares fell sharply lower on April 9, 2019.
"We're focused on investors' losses, whether Defendants knew that the NDA they submitted on February 5 was not sufficiently complete to permit the FDA to conduct a substantive review, and the extent to which investors may have been misled," said Hagens Berman partner Reed Kathrein.
Whistleblowers: Persons with non-public information regarding Zogenix should consider their options to help in the investigation or take advantage of the SEC Whistleblower program. Under the new program, whistleblowers who provide original information may receive rewards totaling up to 30 percent of any successful recovery made by the SEC.
