Abraham, Fruchter & Twersky, LLP has commenced an investigation concerning possible violations of federal securities laws by Impax Laboratories, Inc. (“Impax” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: IPXL).
Impax, based in Hayward, California, is a specialty pharmaceutical company engaged in the development and manufacture of generic pharmaceutical drugs. On March 4, 2013 after the close of trading, Impax announced that it had received a second Form 483 inspectional observation notice by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (the “FDA”) regarding the results of a re-inspection of the Company’s Hayward manufacturing facility. The FDA identified 12 different problems at the Hayward plant that need to be fixed, some of which related to the testing and evaluation processes for the Company’s Parkinson’s disease treatment drug Rytary, which was scheduled to launch in the first half of 2014.
The recent FDA inspection, which spanned from January until the end of February 2013, was also not disclosed by the Company during its fourth-quarter conference call on February 25, 2013. On March 5, 2013, the day following the Company’s announcement, Impax shares closed at $14.80, down 26% from the prior day’s closing price.
