Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities law firm, reminds investors in AbbVie Inc. (“AbbVie” or the “Company”) (NYSE:ABBV) of the November 20, 2018 deadline to seek the role of lead plaintiff in a federal securities class action that has been filed against the Company.

The lawsuit has been filed in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California on behalf of all those who purchased AbbVie securities between October 25, 2013 and September 18, 2018 (the “Class Period”).  The case, Pippins v. AbbVie Inc. et al, No. 18-cv-08225 was filed on September 21, 2018.

The lawsuit focuses on whether the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws by failing to disclose: (1) that the Company relied on kickbacks and illegal marketing tactics to increase the sales growth of HUMIRA, the Company’s blockbuster drug for the treatment of arthritis, plaque psoriasis, ankylosing spondylitis, Crohn's disease, and ulcerative colitis; and (2) that such practices would lead to heightened scrutiny by State governments and agencies.

Specifically, on September 18, 2018, Bloomberg published an article entitled, “California Sues AbbVie Over Alleged Arthritis Drug Kickbacks,” asserting the State of California filed a lawsuit against AbbVie for engaging in a kickback scheme aimed to boost HUMIRA sales.

On this news, AbbVie stock fell from $95.37 per share on September 17, 2018 to $91.02 on September 19, 2018—a $4.35 or 4.56% drop.
