You are hereby notified that a securities class action lawsuit has been commenced in the USDC for the Southern District of New York. To get more information go to: http://zlk.9nl.com/gw-pharmaceuticals.
The complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (i) the Company lacked effective internal financial controls; (ii) the Company lacked effective controls over completeness and valuation of clinical trial accruals; and (iii) as a result of the foregoing, Defendants’ statements about GW Pharmaceuticals’ business, operations, and prospects were false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.
In its 2015 Annual Report, GW Pharmaceuticals disclosed the discovery of a material weakness in its internal control over financial reporting for the year ended September 30, 2015. The Company noted that “management does not have sufficiently precise controls to evaluate the completeness and accuracy of the calculation of clinical trial accruals due to the incorrect allocation of expenditure to clinical studies.” On this news, GW Pharmaceuticals stock fell $3.55, or nearly 6%, to close at $56.31 per share on January 11, 2016.
