SHAREHOLDER ALERT - Portola Pharmaceuticals Inc. (PTLA) - Bronstein, Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC Notifies Investors of Class Action and Lead Plaintiff Deadline: March 16, 2020
Bronstein, Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC notifies investors that a class action lawsuit has been filed against Portola Pharmaceuticals Inc. (“Portola” or the Company”) (NASDAQ: PTLA) and certain of its officers, on behalf of shareholders who purchased Portola securities between November 5, 2019 and January 9, 2020, inclusive (the “Class Period”).
This class action seeks to recover damages against Defendants for alleged violations of the federal securities laws under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.
The complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) Portola’s internal control over financial reporting regarding reserve for product returns was not effective; (2) Portola was shipping longer-dated product with 36-month shelf life; (3) Portola had not established adequate reserve for returns of prior shipments of short-dated product; (4) as a result, Portola was reasonably likely to need to "catch up" on accounting for return reserves; and (5) as a result of the foregoing, defendants’ positive statements about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects were materially misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.
