K-V Pharmaceutical Company (KV-A)



Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP Announces Investigation of K-V Pharmaceutical Company

Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a national law firm concentrating on investor rights, consumer rights and enforcement of federal antitrust laws, is investigating potential wrongdoing at K-V Pharmaceutical Company (“K-V” or the “Company”) (NYSE: KV-A) (NYSE: KV-B).  Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP seeks to determine whether certain officers and directors at K-V violated federal securities laws in connection with statements made to the Company's shareholders.

The investigation focuses on whether certain individuals violated federal securities laws by, among other things, failing to disclose that: (1) the Company had inaccurately claimed that the Food and Drug Administration (the “FDA”) was granting K-V the exclusive distribution rights over “Makena,” a drug used to prevent miscarriages; (2) the FDA would not be enforcing K-V’s rights by preventing the Company’s competitors from distributing generic formulations of the drug; and (3) the drug’s $1,500 price would reduce the availability of Makena to low-income and other at-risk groups.

On March 30, 2011, the FDA revealed that it did not intend to take enforcement action against K-V’s competitors for distributing generic versions of K-V’s Makena.
