According to the complaint, during the Class Period, defendants issued materially false and misleading statements in relation to the drug FUSILEV. In particular, the complaint alleges that the defendants concealed that: (a) once the availability of the generic drug leucovorin increased, Spectrum's sales of FUSILEV would plummet; (b) the purported advantages of FUSILEV over leucovorin would not be sufficient for clinics and hospitals to continue to opt for the more expensive FUSILEV once leucovorin was available in larger quantities; and (c) based upon the above, defendants lacked a reasonable basis for their positive statements about the Company and its revenue and earnings during the Class Period. As a result of defendants' false and misleading statements, Spectrum's stock traded at artificially inflated prices during the Class Period, reaching a high of $13.05 per share on September 18, 2012.

If you suffered a loss in Spectrum you have until May 13, 2013 to request that the Court appoint you as lead plaintiff. Your ability to share in any recovery doesn't require that you serve as a lead plaintiff. To obtain additional information, contact Joseph E.
