The lawsuit has been filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey on behalf of all those who purchased Dr. Reddy's securities between June 17, 2015 and August 10, 2017 (the “Class Period”). The case, Critchley v. Dr. Reddy’s Laboratories Limited et al, No. 3:17-cv-06436 was filed on August 25, 2017.
The lawsuit focuses on whether the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws by making false and/or misleading statements and/or failing to disclose that: (1) Dr. Reddy's lacked an effective corporate quality system; and (2) as a result, Dr. Reddy's public statements were materially false and misleading.
Specifically, on August 10, 2017, Dr. Reddy's published a letter disclosing that the Regulatory Authority of Germany (Regierung von Oberbayern) sent notice to Dr. Reddy’s wholly-owned subsidiary, betapharm Arzneimittel GmbH, that one of the Company’s plants lost its Good Manufacturing Practices compliance certificate.
On this news, Dr. Reddy's share price fell from $32.25 per share on August 9, 2017 to a closing price of $30.33 on August 10, 2017 —a $1.92 or a 5.95% drop.
The court-appointed lead plaintiff is the investor with the largest financial interest in the relief sought by the class who is adequate and typical of class members who directs and oversees the litigation on behalf of the putative class. Any member of the putative class may move the Court to serve as lead plaintiff through counsel of their choice, or may choose to do nothing and remain an absent class member. Your ability to share in any recovery is not affected by the decision to serve as a lead plaintiff or not.
