Endo International Settles Securities Settlement for $82.5 Million

Second Endo Settlement of 2019

Endo International... Sound familiar? Earlier this August we posted a blog with a similar title “Endo International Settles Securities Settlement for $50 Million.”

So what’s the difference? Aside from $32.5 million.

The first settlement pertained to declining demand for Endo’s generic drugs and also alleged that Endo had conspired to fix prices, which resulted in inflated stock and later a law enforcement inquiry. Once the scheme collapsed, plaintiffs alleged, the stock price collapsed with it.

This newer settlement pertains to Endo’s role in the opioid crisis. Specifically, plaintiffs allege that “failed to disclose material adverse facts regarding the putative safety and abuse-deterrent properties of Reformulated Opana, an opioid analgesic indicated for the management of severe pain that requires daily opioid treatment.”

Here are the other key facts:
