Members of the foregoing Class have until January 3, 2014, to file a motion to be appointed as lead plaintiff in the shareholder lawsuit.

Amarin is a biopharmaceutical company, focused on the development and commercialization of therapeutic products for the treatment for cardiovascular diseases. The Company’s lead product Vascepa is an adjunct to diet to reduce triglyceride levels in adult patients and also for the treatment of patients with high triglyceride levels who are also on statin therapy for elevated low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (the “Anchor” indication).
The Complaint alleges that defendants issued materially misleading statements concerning Amarin’s business, operations and financial prospects. Specifically, the Complaint alleges that:
- Defendants misrepresented the prospects for Food and Drug Administration approval of Vascepa for the ANCHOR indication.
- Defendants failed to disclose that the FDA had informed Amarin that there was a lack of prospective, controlled clinical trial data demonstrating that pharmaceutical reduction of triglycerides significantly reduces residual cardiovascular risk.
If you are a member of the Class described above, you may move the Court no later than January 3, 2014, to serve as lead plaintiff; however, you must meet certain legal requirements. To be a member of the Class you need not take any action at this time; you may retain counsel of your choice or take no action and remain an absent member of the Class.
