The investigation concerns whether statements made by the Company and certain of its officers from December 14, 2011 to January 17, 2012 regarding the safety and effectiveness of the Company’s progesterone gel product Prochieve were materially false and misleading. On December 14, 2011, the Company issued a press release highlighting the purported results of clinical trials that showed that Prochieve “significantly reduces the risk of preterm birth and neonatal morbidity.” Following this announcement Columbia’s stock increased in price significantly. On January 17, 2012, however, the Food & Drug Administration released documents including trial data that indicates Prochieve is not effective. As a result, Columbia’s stock price tumbled over 50%, to $1.10, well below where it traded before the December 14, 2011 announcement.
