SHAREHOLDER ALERT: Brower Piven Notifies Investors of Class Action Lawsuit And Encourages Those Who Have Losses In Excess Of $100,000 From Investment In Agile Therapeutics, Inc. (AGRX) To Contact Brower Piven Before The Lead Plaintiff Deadline
STEVENSON, Md., Jan. 12, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The securities litigation law firm of Brower Piven, A Professional Corporation, announces that a class action lawsuit has been commenced in the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey on behalf of purchasers of Agile Therapeutics, Inc. (Nasdaq:AGRX) (“Agile” or the “Company”) securities during the period between March 9, 2016 and January 3, 2017, inclusive (the “Class Period”). Investors who wish to become proactively involved in the litigation have until March 7, 2017 to seek appointment as lead plaintiff.
If you wish to choose counsel to represent you and the Class, you must apply to be appointed lead plaintiff and be selected by the Court. The lead plaintiff will direct the litigation and participate in important decisions including whether to accept a settlement for the Class in the action. The lead plaintiff will be selected from among applicants claiming the largest loss from investment in Agile securities during the Class Period. Members of the Class will be represented by the lead plaintiff and counsel chosen by the lead plaintiff. No class has yet been certified in the above action.
The complaint accuses the defendants of violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 by virtue of the defendants’ failure to disclose during the Class Period that: Agile’s Twirla contraceptive patch had an efficacy rating that fell below peer group standards; over half of the patients in its “Secure” Phase 3 Study dropped out of the study early; and, the Twirla patch had a slim chance for U.S. Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) approval.
According to the complaint, following a January 3, 2017 announcement that the Twirla patch’s efficacy measure failed to meet the industry standard for FDA approved contraceptives and that 51.4% of patients failed to continue the study to completion, the value of Agile shares declined significantly.
If you have suffered a loss in excess of $100,000 from investment in Agile securities purchased on or after March 9, 2016 and held through the revelation of negative information during and/or at the end of the Class Period and would like to learn more about this lawsuit and your ability to participate as a lead plaintiff, without cost or obligation to you, please visit our website at http://www.browerpiven.com/currentsecuritiescases.html.
