The complaint alleges that Defendants violated the Securities Act of 1933. In particular, the complaint alleges the Company’s registration statement, in connection with its initial public offering (“IPO”), contained untrue statements of material facts and or omitted to state other facts necessary to make the statements not misleading. More specifically, the complaint alleges that the Company’s registration statement failed to disclose that at the time of the IPO, Warner Chilcott had stopped shipments of Ovcon 35, eliminating a valuable revenue stream for the Company.
On September 26, 2006, the Company announced developments in a lawsuit brought against it by the Federal Trade Commission. Additionally, the Company also filed a supplement to its initial registration statement, in which it disclosed that it had stopped shipments of Ovcon 35 in September. In reaction to this news, shares of Warner Chilcott fell from $15.00 per share to $12.60 per share, a one-day decline of 16% on very heavy volume.
