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:

“I could go on and on, but bottom line, the fees being charged are much less than what I was spending in house to file and this is just one less thing I have to spend time trying to figure out how to complete on a consistent basis. I send the data on an annual basis to CCC and they take it from there. My clients are protected (if there is a class action, it is getting filed), the Bank is protected (we are meeting our fiduciary obligation by filing the claims) and…dealing with the CCC staff has been a very positive thing.”
John E. Thomason, The National Bank of Indianapolis
“We were spending countless hours on class action claims before we signed on with CCC in January. Matt Murray and their technical team ensured our data transmission was seamless and secure. We found everyone at CCC to be professional, courteous, and accommodating.”
Carie A. Minnie, Torrington Savings Bank
“We found filing securities claims very time consuming and laborious. But after signing with CCC, it’s been great! Everything is handled behind the scenes.”
Carol A. Neville, Proffitt & Goodson
“Signing with CCC has made a huge difference. Before, it was horrible. We had to print thousands of pieces of paper, invite clients to come in and sit down with us to show them where to find the transactions, how to input them into the Proof of Claim forms…Now, we do some minor leg work up front when a new account is opened, and then upload our spreadsheet to CCC. And then, voila! It’s very nice to be able to tell our client, “You can shred that Proof of Claim form because CCC has it taken care of.”
Daniela Jones, Barnes Investment Advisory
“Your client reporting portal and customer service is the reason we chose Chicago Clearing.”
