BOSTON, Jan. 29, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Block & Leviton LLP (www.blockesq.com), a securities litigation firm representing investors nationwide, reminds investors that it has filed a securities fraud class action against Allergan plc. (“Allergan” or the “Company”) (NYSE: AGN) and certain of its officers and directors. The firm encourages shareholders to contact Block & Leviton LLP ahead of the February 19, 2019 lead plaintiff deadline.
The complaint, filed in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York, captioned Cook v. Allergan plc et al., Case No. 18-cv-12089, alleges that between May 9, 2017, and December 19, 2018, inclusive, 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 19, 2018, Allergan announced that it had suspended sales of textured breast implants and that it was withdrawing any remaining supply from the European markets. The withdrawal decision followed a compulsory recall request from Agence Nationale de Securite du Medicament, the regulatory authority in France.
Following this news, Allergan's stock price dropped from $146.76 at close on December 18, 2018, to $136.56 at close on December 19, 2018.
