NEW YORK, Nov. 18, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Attorney Advertising -- Bronstein, Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC is investigating potential claims on behalf of purchasers of Mallinckrodt Public Limited Company (" Mallinckrodt" or the "Company") (NYSE: MNK). Such investors are advised to obtain additional information and assist the investigation by visiting the firm's site: www.bgandg.com/mnk.
The investigation concerns whether Mallinckrodt and certain of its officers and/or directors have violated Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. On November 16, 2016, Citron Research published an article called " Mallinckrodt CEO FRAUD exposed by the new Medicare Drug Dashboard." The article accuses Mallinckrodt's CEO, Mark C. Trudeau, of lying to stockholders on a conference call on October 5, 2015. Turdeau said that the Company's total Medicare and Medicaid spending on Acthar is "a little bit higher than" 25% of Acthar's sales. Citron Research then revealed the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services's data that showed Medicare and Medicaid spending on Acthar in 2015 that was roughly 61% of Acthar's sales. Following this news, Mallinckrodt stock dropped $8.15 per share or about 12% to close at $59.65 per share on November 16, 2016.
