According to the Complaint, Esperion Therapeutics made materially false and misleading statements during the class period. Esperion failed to disclose that Bempedoic acid, the company’s cholesterol-lowering medication, had serious safety risks up to and including death. As a result of the failure to disclose this information, Esperion Therapeutics’ financial statements, claims about the company’s business operations, and financial prospects were materially false and misleading throughout the class period. According to the lawsuit, when accurate information about Esperion Therapeutics became apparent in the market, investors suffered damages.
