NEW YORK, May 16, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Rosen Law Firm, P.A. announces that it has filed a class action lawsuit on behalf of purchasers of INSYS Therapeutics, Inc. (Nasdaq:INSY) securities between May 1, 2013 and May 8, 2014, seeking to recover damages for violations of 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 ALSO REMAIN AN ABSENT CLASS MEMBER AND DO NOTHING AT THIS POINT. YOU MAY RETAIN COUNSEL OF YOUR CHOICE.
According to the Complaint, the Company failed to disclose and/or materially misstated its true financial and business condition because: (i) the Company engaged in illegal and/or unethical off label marketing of Subsys(R); (ii) the Company was exposed to potential fines and other disciplinary actions as a result of its Subsys marketing practices; and, (iii) as a result, the Company's financial statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.
On December 12, 2013, after the market closed, the company announced that, "it has received a subpoena from the Office of Inspector General of the Department of Health and Human Services ("HHS") in connection with an investigation of potential violations involving HHS programs. The subpoena requests documents regarding Subsys, including INSYS' sales and marketing practices relating to this product." This caused the Company's shares to fall $7.73 per share, or over 17%.
On May 8, 2014, a news source published an article detailing charges against a Michigan doctor who allegedly accounted for 20% of total nationwide Subsys prescriptions. The doctor was charged by federal prosecutors with defrauding Medicare, private insurers, and prescribing unnecessary medications to patients. This caused the Company's shares to fall $6.64 per share, or over 16%.
On May 11, 2014, analyst firm, Bronte Capital, published a report further highlighting the claims against the Michigan doctor, and the problems attendant to INSYS' marketing of Subsys, including allegedly illegal off-label marketing. This caused INSYS shares to fall $5.04 per share, or 15%.
