EQUITY ALERT: Rosen Law Firm Reminds Aegerion Pharmaceuticals, Inc. Investors of Important March 17, 2014 Class Action Deadline -- AEGR

NEW YORK, March 4, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Rosen Law Firm, P.A. reminds purchasers of Aegerion Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Nasdaq:AEGR) between March 15, 2012 and January 9, 2014, inclusive (the "Class Period") of the important Mach 17, 2014 lead plaintiff deadline in the class action seeking remedies under the federal securities laws.

NO CLASS HAS YET BEEN CERTIFIED IN THE ABOVE ACTION. UNTIL A CLASS IS CERTIFIED, YOU ARE NOT REPRESENTED BY COUNSEL UNLESS YOU RETAIN ONE. YOU MAY CHOOSE TO DO NOTHING AT THIS POINT AND REMAIN AN ABSENT CLASS MEMBER.

According to the suit, defendants issued materially false and misleading statements about Aegerion's true business and financial condition because the Company allegedly marketed its drugs in violation of the Food Drug and Cosmetic Act. On January 10, 2014, Aegerion announced that it received a subpoena from the U.S. Department of Justice requesting documents regarding the Company's marketing of Juxtapid. The lawsuit claims this adverse information caused the price of Aegerion's stock price to fall, damaging investors.

If you wish to serve as lead plaintiff, you must move the Court no later than March 17, 2014. A lead plaintiff is a representative party acting on behalf of other class members in directing the litigation.
