Allergan To Allocate $130 Million As Settlement To Appease Aggrieved Company Investors

Allergan investors score a win recently as the drug company agreed to pay up $130 million as settlement for the class action filed against them, contending that shareholders were tricked by Allergan regarding their price-fixing schemes. 

Company Investors Union Asset Management Holding AG and Sjunde AP-Fonden Score Initial Win 

The Allergan Price-Fixing Antitrust Class Action Lawsuit originated from allegations that Allergan purposely increased the price tags on their drugs to up to 7,000%, which ended up hurting investors. 

This is because when the news of Allergan’s purported price-fixing schemes were released to the public, company shares fell down, causing losses to shareholders. 

Furthermore, the announcement was coupled with investigations initiated by the authorities, eventually leading to federal prosecutors looking into pressing criminal charges against Allergan. 

The plaintiffs in the case led by Union Asset Management Holding AG and Sjunde AP-Fonden argued that Allergan inflated its company stock prices along with its drug offerings. They continued that the company has failed to properly disclose and inform their shareholders about their actions leading to the government allegations. 

And now, Allergan has agreed to enter into a class action settlement agreement with the complainants, which officially ends the legal proceedings involving the charges filed against them in 2016. 

Allergan Price-Fixing Class Action Lawsuit Settlement’s Initial Details 

Initial reports suggest that Allergan shareholders who have purchased company stocks between the dates of 29th of October 2013 to 2nd of November 2016 will be covered by the legal proceedings and are eligible to file official claims. 

Meanwhile, the investors who act as the plaintiffs in the class action commended that the settlement amount of $130 million was a favorable result for the aggrieved company shareholders.

In their court filing asking for the judge’s official approval for the settlement proceedings to carry on, Union Asset Management Holding AG and Sjunde AP-Fonden have also included their intention to have a Class formation proposal be approved.
