According to the complaint, the Company made false and/or misleading statements about its financial condition and prospects to convince shareholders to reject a merger proposal by Mylan N.V. Perrigo publicly rejected the offer on April 21, 2015 and told investors that Mylan N.V. undervalued the Company. On November 13, 2015 a majority of Perrigo's shareholders refused to tender their shares, thus defeating Mylan's tender offer. Since that date, Perrigo's CEO resigned, the Company has lowered its 2016 earnings guidance, and the Company incurred a $185 million impairment charge related to its acquisition of Omega Pharma NV.
