In a recently filed federal class action complaint, BioSante and certain of its officers and directors were charged with violating the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Specifically, the complaint alleges that during the class period the defendants issued materially false and misleading statements to investors about the commercial viability of LibiGel, BioSante’s testosterone gel, and the drug’s effectiveness and market potential, which resulted in artificially high share prices. Notably, on December 14, 2011, BioSante disclosed for the first time that clinical trials of LibiGel failed to yield positive results and users in the tests did not show a significant increase in either sexual desire or satisfying sexual events. As a result of the news, BioSante’s stock price dropped substantially.
According to shareholder rights attorney Willie Briscoe, “The recent revelations about BioSante’s alleged misrepresentations regarding its business and financial status has led our firms to investigate possible breaches of fiduciary duties and other violations of state law by BioSante’s officers and directors. Based on our investigation, we are prepared to institute litigation to preserve the company and the value of BioSante stock for all shareholders.”
