According to the Complaint, the Company made false and misleading statements to the market. Akorn downplayed the severity of violations at its Decatur, Illinois, manufacturing facility, misleading investors. The Company’s response to the FDA’s Form 483, which detailed the agency’s inspection of the facility, was found to be inadequate by the regulator. In fact, the Company repeatedly failed to correct manufacturing problems at this plant. Based on these facts, the Company’s public statements were false and materially misleading throughout the class period. When the market learned the truth about Akorn, investors suffered damages.
