About the Lawsuit

Aerie and certain of its executives are charged with failing to disclose material information during the Class Period, violating federal securities laws.

On April 23, 2015, Aerie issued a press release announcing the results of its first Phase 3 registration trial for the Company’s lead product candidate RhopressaTM, a once-per-day eye drop that is designed to lower intraocular pressure (“IOP”) in patients with glaucoma or ocular hypertension. According to the release, “[t]he trial did not meet its primary efficacy endpoint of demonstrating non-inferiority of IOP lowering for once-daily RhopressaTM compared to twice-daily timolol, the most widely used comparator in registration trials for glaucoma.”

On this news, the price of Aerie's shares plummeted by almost 64%.
