Amarin Corporation plc
Amarin Corporation plc (“Amarin” or the “Company”) is a biopharmaceutical company specializing in the development of therapeutics for cardiovascular health.
On March 30, 2020, Amarin announced that “the United States District Court for the District of Nevada rul[ed] in favor of the generic companies in the company’s patent litigation against two filers of abbreviated new drug applications, or ANDAs, for Amarin’s VASCEPA® (icosapent ethyl) capsule franchise.” On this news, Amarin’s share price fell $9.58, or approximately 70.5%, to close at $4.00 per share on March 31, 2020, thereby injuring investors.
On June 21, 2021, investors learned that the Supreme Court rejected the Company’s bid to revive its Vascepa patents. On this news, Amarin’s share price fell 5.2%, to close at $4.70 per share on June 21, 2021, further injuring investors.
A securities class action has been filed against Amarin on behalf of shareholders that purchased Amarin shares between December 5, 2018 through June 21, 2021. This case has been filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey.
The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and misleading statements and/or failed to disclose material adverse facts about Amarin’s business and patent portfolio. Specifically, Defendants made false and misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (i) there was an increasingly high risk that certain of Amarin’s patents would be invalidated; (ii) once certain of Amarin’s patents were invalidated by the United States District Court for the District of Nevada, there was little to no chance of reversing that ruling; (iii) the Company’s litigation was preventing it from effectuating a successful takeover; (iv) Defendants were downplaying the true threat the ongoing Abbreviated New Drug Application (“ANDA”) litigation posed to the Company’s business and future prospects; and (v) as a result, the Company’s public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.
