It has been alleged that during the Class Period, KV Pharmaceutical and certain of its officers and directors made materially false and misleading statements or failed to disclose material information related to the company’s business and operations in violation of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Specifically, the complaint alleges that defendants misrepresented that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) had granted KV Pharmaceutical the exclusive distribution rights over "Makena," a drug used to prevent miscarriages, and that the FDA would enforce those rights by preventing KV Pharmaceutical’s competitors from distributing generic formulations of the drug. The complaint further alleges that defendants failed to disclose that the drug’s $1,500 price actually would reduce the availability of Makena to low-income and other at-risk groups. It’s alleged that the defendants’ false statements cause KV Pharmaceutical’s stock to trade at artificially inflated prices during the Class Period.
