The complaint alleges that Defendants violated Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and Rule 10b-5 promulgated thereunder. Specifically, the complaint alleges that the Company failed to disclose that it had hyped the results of an inconclusive study of AGI-1067, that the levels of plaque reduction described by the Company in its original announcement differed meaningfully from the results achieved by the Cleveland Clinic, that the Company was rapidly burning cash and that it would need to raise additional funds, and that the Company manipulated the study's results in order to enter into a strategic partnership with a major pharmaceutical company to complete the commercialization of AGI-1067. When the truth was revealed the price of Atherogenics shares fell from a close of $23.56 per share on December 31, 2004 to close at $18.72 on January 3, 2005.
If you bought Atherogenics securities between September 28, 2004 and December 31, 2004, inclusive, and would like to obtain information about the lawsuit, then you are invited to call (800) 495-1868 to speak with an advisor.
