About the Lawsuit
Orexigen and certain of its executives are charged with failing to disclose material information during the Class Period, violating federal securities laws.
On March 3, 2015, Orexigen announced positive interim results of an ongoing clinical trial of its weight loss drug Contrave, stating that a patient group taking Contrave had fewer serious cardiovascular problems than those who took a placebo. Following this, the price of Orexigen’s stock rose.
Then, on March 5, 2015, a Forbes report stated that the FDA’s director of the Office of New Drugs criticized Orexigen’s released data as “unreliable,” “misleading,” and “likely false.” The Forbes report warned that “[i]f Orexigen cannot find a way to set things right, it could face fines, civil penalties, or even the withdrawal of Contrave from the market.” On this news, the price of Orexigen’s shares plummeted.
