The Defendants in this action are Mylan and certain of Mylan’s former members of management and directors (collectively, the “Defendants”.)
The Third Amended Class Action Complaint (“Complaint”) alleges three categories of misconduct on the part of Mylan that make statements by Defendants to investors false and misleading: (1) Mylan knowingly misclassified the EpiPen for the purposes of the MDRP; (2) Mylan offered anticompetitive rebates on EpiPen in order to eliminate competition and inflate the price of the EpiPen; and (3) Mylan was a central participant in a massive cartel among generic drug companies that allocated the markets for, and fixed the prices of, generic drugs. This is an action for violations of Section 10(b) of the Exchange Act and Rule 10b-5 promulgated thereunder and Section 20(a) of the Exchange Act.
The Defendants emphatically deny all claims and wrongdoing asserted in the Complaint and any liability arising out of the conduct alleged therein. The Defendants deny that the EpiPen was misclassified for purposes of the MDRP; that its rebates on EpiPen were anticompetitive; or that it participated in a cartel or conspired to allocate the markets for, or fix the prices of, generic drugs. The Defendants further deny that any of the Defendants made any materially false or misleading statements regarding the alleged misconduct. The Defendants filed an answer to the Complaint on April 27, 2020, denying all material allegations and asserting multiple defenses.
The Court has not made any determination about whether the Defendants engaged in any alleged misconduct or wrongdoing.
