Levi & Korsinsky, LLP announces that a class action lawsuit has been commenced in the United States District Court for the District of Maryland on behalf of shareholders of Emergent Biosolutions Inc. who purchased shares between January 11, 2016 and June 21, 2016.
The complaint alleges that defendants issued materially false and misleading information regarding the Company’s business and financial prospects, particularly in relation to potential contract renewals and demand from the U.S. government for its anthrax vaccine BioThrax. The complaint further alleges that these positive statements caused the stock to trade at artificially inflated prices, allowing insiders to sell their shares at these inflated prices. On June 22, 2016, before the open of trading, Emergent Biosolutions announced that the U.S. government had notified the Company it would only be purchasing 29.4 million doses of the vaccine over the following five years—an amount approximately one third less than the original contract. In addition, the Company disclosed that the government was seeking other anthrax vaccines, and that it was putting its supply bid out to other companies.
