The Law Offices of Howard G. Smith Announces Filing of Securities Class Action on Behalf of Clovis Oncology, Inc. Investors

BENSALEM, Pa.--()--Law Offices of Howard G. Smith announces the filing of a class action lawsuit on behalf of investors of Clovis Oncology, Inc. ("Clovis" or the "Company") (NYSE:CLVS) who purchased shares between October 31, 2013 and November 15, 2015, inclusive (the “Class Period”). Clovis investors have until January 19, 2016 to file a lead plaintiff motion.

Clovis is a biopharmaceutical company that focuses on acquiring, developing, and commercializing innovative anti-cancer agents in the United States, Europe and additional international markets.

Throughout the Class Period, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements, as well as failed to disclose material adverse facts about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects. Specifically, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose: (1) that the New Drug Application (“NDA”) that Clovis submitted to the FDA for rociletinib contained immature data sets based on both unconfirmed response rates and confirmed response rates; (2) that Clovis’ Breakthrough Therapy designation submission contained immature data set based primarily on unconfirmed responses; (3) that Clovis presented interim data publicly and at medical meetings that included a data set based primarily on unconfirmed responses; (4) that as the efficacy data matured, the number of patients with an unconfirmed response who converted to a confirmed response was lower than expected; (5) that, as a result of the foregoing, Clovis’ NDA was likely to be delayed and/or rejected by the FDA; and (6) that, as a result of the foregoing, the Defendants’ statements about Clovis’ business, operations, and prospects, were false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.
