If you suffered losses because of your purchases of Insys Therapeutics between March 3, 2015 and January 25, 2016, or have information that will help our continuing investigation contact Hagens Berman Partner Reed Kathrein, who is leading the firm’s investigation by calling 510-725-3000 or emailing [email protected] or visiting https://www.hbsslaw.com/cases/insy. The lawsuit was filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Arizona and investors have until April 4, 2016 to move the court to participate as a lead plaintiff.
Throughout the Class Period, various sources reported that Insys and key executives were engaged in illegal and improper off-label marketing of the Company’s core product, the narcotic Subsys. Specifically, the Southern Investigating Report Foundation published articles on April 24, 2015, December 3, 2015, and January 25, 2016 alleging that the Company and key executives encouraged employees to promote illegal and off-label marketing of Subsys, and had not been transparent about cases of patients who had either died or suffered adverse events while being treated with Subsys.
Additionally, on June 15, 2015, the New York Times published an article that covered the guilty conviction of a Connecticut nurse who accepted more than $83,000 in kickbacks from Insys as payment for writing $1 million worth of Subsys prescriptions.
In total, as a result of these articles, Insys’ stock price dropped from $31.21 per adjusted share on April 24, 2015 down to $21.58 per share on January 25, 2016, a decline of more than 30%.
