According to the lawsuit, defendants issued materially false and misleading statements about Unilife's true business and financial condition in violation of the federal securities laws. Specifically, the complaint alleges that the defendants concealed from investors that: (i) the Company's Unifill syringes failed to comply with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration's ("FDA") validation process; (ii) Unilife's Quality Management System failed to comply with FDA regulations; (iii) Unilife intentionally increased its purchases of Unifill component parts to lead suppliers into believing that Unilife was producing at increased volumes even though its lacked customer demand or manufacturing capacity to support such purchases; and (iv) consequently, the Company's statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times. As a result, the complaint alleges that when this adverse information was disclosed, it caused the price of Unilife stock to drop, damaging investors.
