BENSALEM, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Law Offices of Howard G. Smith reminds investors of the upcoming January 5, 2017 deadline to file a lead plaintiff motion in the class action filed on behalf of investors who purchased Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Limited (“Teva” or the “Company”) (NYSE: TEVA) securities between February 10, 2014 and November 3, 2016, inclusive (the “Class Period”). Teva investors have until January 5, 2017 to file a lead plaintiff motion.
On November 3, 2016, Bloomberg published the article “U.S. Charges in Generic-Drug Probe to Be Filed by Year End” which discussed the Department of Justice’s two year investigation of suspected price collusion by several pharmaceutical companies, including Teva, which will likely result in prosecutors filing criminal charges by the end of the year.
The complaint filed in this lawsuit alleges that Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) Teva and several of its pharmaceutical industry peers colluded to fix generic drug prices; (2) the foregoing conduct constituted a violation of federal antitrust laws; (3) consequently, Teva’s revenues during the Class Period were in part the result of illegal conduct; and (4) as a result, Teva’s public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.
If you purchased Teva shares, you may move the Court no later than January 5, 2017 to request appointment as lead plaintiff. 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. If you wish to learn more about this action, or if you have any questions concerning this announcement or your rights or interests with respect to these matters, please contact Howard G. Smith, Esquire, of Law Offices of Howard G. Smith, 3070 Bristol Pike, Suite 112, Bensalem, Pennsylvania 19020 by telephone at (215) 638-4847, toll-free at (888) 638-4847, or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit our website at http://www.howardsmithlaw.com.
