According to the lawsuit, defendants issued materially false and misleading statements about Amarin’s true business and financial condition in violation of the federal securities laws. Specifically, the complaint alleges that: (i) defendants misrepresented the prospects for U.S. Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) approval of Amarin’s lead product Vascepa, which reduces triglycerides levels in adult patients; and (ii) defendants failed to disclose that the FDA had informed Amarin that there was a lack of prospective, controlled clinical trial data indicating that pharmaceutical reduction of triglycerides significantly reduces residual cardiovascular risk. The complaint alleges that investors who purchased the Company’s ADSs at artificially inflated prices during the Class Period suffered damages when the truth about the Company’s financial condition was revealed to the market at certain times during the Class Period and the price of the Company’s ADSs declined.Kantrowitz, Goldhamer & Graifman, P.C. has been retained by a purchaser of Amarin common stock seeking to recover damages on his own behalf and on behalf of a class of purchasers of Amarin ADSs.
