NEW YORK, Jan. 14, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Attorney Advertising -- Bronstein, Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC reminds investors that a class action lawsuit has been filed against Allergan plc ("Allergan" or the "Company") (NYSE:AGN) and certain of its officers, on behalf of shareholders who purchased or otherwise acquired Allergan shares between May 9, 2017, and December 19, 2018, both dates inclusive (the "Class Period"). Such investors are encouraged to join this case by visiting the firm's site: bgandg.com/agn.
This class action seeks to recover damages against Defendants for alleged violations of the federal securities laws under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.
The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose adverse information. Specifically, the complaint alleges that Allergan concealed from investors the fact that the Company's CE Mark for its textured breast implants and tissue expanders was expiring in Europe.
On December 18, 2018, France's National Agency for the Safety of Medicines & Health Products ("ANSM") ordered the recall of textured breast implants manufactured by Allergan from the European market, stating that the implants "have been linked to a rare form of cancer"—specifically, anaplastic large cell lymphoma. On December 19, 2018, Allergan stated that it would remove its textured breast implants from the European market. Following these announcements, Allergan's stock price fell sharply to close at $136.56 on December 19, 2018.
