(“Depomed” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: DEPO) securities between February 26, 2015 and August 7, 2017, inclusive (the “Class Period”).

On August 7, 2017, Depomed announced that it had received a request for information relating to the promotion of opioids from the U.S. Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs as well as the Office of the Attorney General of Maryland and the U.S. Department of Justice.
On this news, Depomed’s share price fell $3.09, or 33.42%, to close at $6.15 on August 8, 2017.
The Complaint filed in this class action alleges that throughout the Class Period, the Company made materially false and misleading statements regarding the Company’s business, operational and compliance policies. Specifically, the Company made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (i) Depomed engaged in questionable practices in connection with the sales and marketing of the Company’s opioid products; (ii) the foregoing conduct, when it became known, would likely subject the Company to heightened legal and regulatory scrutiny; and (iii) as a result, Depomed’s public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.
If you purchased shares of Depomed during the Class Period you may move the Court no later than October 17, 2017 to ask the Court to appoint you 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.
