The complaint alleges that Defendants issued false and misleading statements regarding the Company’s business and prospects, including that there was no clear path to approval for ETC-1002, the Company’s lead product candidate designed to lower LDL-cholesterol levels, and that the FDA had encouraged the Company to initiate a cardiovascular outcomes trial (“CVOT”) and that completion of a CVOT could be necessary prior to approval of ETC-1002.

On August 17, 2015, Esperion reported to investors material events from an August 2015 meeting with the FDA; the Company stated that during the meeting it was informed by the FDA that the Company would not have to complete a CVOT to gain approval of ETC-1002. Then in a September 28, 2015 news release the Company noted that the FDA had actually “encouraged the Company to initiate a cardiovascular outcomes trial promptly” and it may be necessary to have a completed CVOT prior to approval.

If you suffered a loss in Esperion Therapeutics you have until March 14, 2016 to request that the Court appoint you as lead plaintiff.
