LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Glancy Binkow & Goldberg LLP reminds investors of INSYS Therapeutics, Inc. (“INSYS” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ:INSY) that all purchasers of INSYS securities between May 2, 2013 and May 8, 2014, inclusive (the “Class Period”), have until July 14, 2014, to file a motion to be appointed as lead plaintiff in the shareholder lawsuit.
Insys is a specialty pharmaceutical company that develops and commercializes innovative supportive care products. The Company has two marketed products – a generic equivalent to Marinol for chemotherapy-induced nausea, vomiting and anorexia in patients with AIDS, and Subsys, a proprietary sublingual fentanyl spray for breakthrough cancer pain in opioid-tolerant patients. The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period defendants issued false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose: (1) the Company’s illegal and/or improper marketing of Subsys; (2) that improper marketing of Subsys could lead to regulatory scrutiny; (3) that such regulatory scrutiny could expose the Company to potential fines and other disciplinary actions; and (4), as a result of the foregoing, that the Company’s financial statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.
On December 12, 2013, Insys disclosed that it has received a subpoena from the Office of Inspector General of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) in connection with an investigation of potential violations involving HHS programs and requesting documents regarding Subsys, including Insys’ sales and marketing practices relating to Subsys. On this news, shares of Insys stock declined $4.70 per share, or nearly 16%, to close at $25.37 per share on December 13, 2013.
On May 8, 2014, the MLive.com website reported that a Kochville Township, Michigan, neurologist is under federal investigation and accused of defrauding Medicare for allegedly receiving $6.9 million from January 1, 2009 through February 6, 2014, for Subsys he allegedly prescribed to Medicare beneficiaries nationwide during that period. The MLive.com article alleges that the physician was responsible for over 20% of total nationwide Subsys prescriptions. Following this news, the Company’s stock price declined $6.63 per share, more than 17%, to close at $32.68 per share on May 9, 2014, on unusually heavy trading volume.
