DEADLINE ALERT: Brower Piven Reminds Investors Of The January 17, 2017 Deadline In Class Action Lawsuit And Encourages Investors With Losses In Excess of $100,000 From Investment In Alexion Pharmaceuticals, Inc. To Contact The Firm

STEVENSON, Md.--()--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 Southern District of New York on behalf of purchasers of Alexion Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Nasdaq: ALXN) (“Alexion” or the “Company”) securities during the period between February 10, 2014 and November 9, 2016, inclusive (the “Class Period”). Investors who wish to become proactively involved in the litigation have until January 17, 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 Alexion 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 Alexion employed improper sales practices with respect to Soloris, a monoclonal antibody for the treatment of paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria (“PNH”) and atypical hemolytic uremic syndrome (“aHUS”), and the Company’s revenues from Soloris sales were unlikely to be sustainable.

According to the complaint, following a November 4, 2016 cancellation of an appearance at the Credit Suisse Healthcare Conference and a failure to file its Quarterly Report with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission within two days of its earnings announcement, and a November 9, 2016 press release, Form 8-K, and Form NT 10-Q announcing that it would not be able to timely file its financial and operating results for the quarter ended September 30, 2016 because the Company was conducting an investigation into allegations regarding sales practices of Soloris, the value of Alexion shares declined significantly.

If you have suffered a loss in excess of $100,000 from investment in Alexion securities purchased on or after February 10, 2014 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.
