Investor Alert: Deadline for Appointment as Lead Plaintiff in the Shareholder Class Action Against Warner Chilcott Ltd (WCRX)
DALLAS – There are only 15 more days until the January 2, 2007 deadline to file for appointment of Lead Plaintiff in the pending class action lawsuit against Warner Chilcott Limited (“WCRX” or “the Company”) (NASDAQ:WCRX – News). If you purchased the securities of WCRX between September 20, 2006 and September 26, 2006, inclusive (the “Class Period”), you may contact Baron & Budd, P.C. to discuss your legal options.
On November 1, 2006, the initial complaint was filed against WCRX alleging violations of Federal securities laws. The complaint charges that Defendants violated the Securities Act of 1933. In particular, the complaint alleges the Company's registration statement, in conjunction with its initial public offering ("IPO"), contained false statements of material facts and/or failed to state other facts necessary to make the statements not misleading. Specifically, the complaint alleges that the Company's registration statement neglected to disclose that at the time of the IPO, the WCRX had halted shipments of Ovcon 35, erasing a valuable revenue stream for the Company.
On September 26, 2006, the Company announced advancements in a lawsuit carried out against it by the Federal Trade Commission. Additionally, the Company also filed a supplement to its initial registration statement, in which it disclosed that it had shut down shipments of Ovcon 35 in September.
In reaction to this news, shares of Warner Chilcott plummeted from $15.00 per share to $12.60 per share, a single day decline of 16% on abnormally heavy volume.
