Levi & Korsinsky announces the commencement of a class action lawsuit in the USDC for the District of New Jersey on behalf of shareholders of Agile Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ: AGRX) (“Agile Therapeutics”) who purchased shares between March 9, 2016 and January 3, 2017.
The complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, Agile Therapeutics made materially false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (a) the Twirla contraceptive patch had an efficacy rating that fell below peer group standards; (b) over half of patients in its “Secure” Phase 3 Study discontinued the study early; and (c) the Twirla patch therefore allegedly had a slight chance of gaining approval by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
On January 3, 2017, Agile Therapeutics reported “positive top-line results” for the study, yet reported an efficacy measure that failed to meet the standard set by other approved contraceptive patches. In addition, more than 51% of subjects opted to discontinue the study. Upon this news, shares of Agile Therapeutics fell from a close of $5.70 per share on December 30, 2016, to a close of $2.63 per share on January 4, 2017.
