The investigation focuses on whether the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws by failing to disclose that Pain Therapeutics’ new drug REMOXY was not approvable by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) due to chemistry, manufacturing, and control deficiencies that caused unreliable results during laboratory tests.

On June 24, 2011, Pain Therapeutics announced that the Company had received a Complete Response Letter from the FDA denying the Company’s New Drug Application (“NDA”) for REMOXY. As a result of this shocking revelation, Company shares declined $3.94 per share or nearly 43%, to close at $5.30 per share on June 24, 2011.

On June 27, 2011, the Company disclosed that the FDA’s Complete Response Letter raised concerns related to, among other things, the chemistry, manufacturing and controls sections of the NDA for REMOXY. In the aftermath of this disclosure, the Company’s shares declined an additional $1.37 per share or nearly 26%, to close at $3.93 per share on June 27, 2011.
