SALIX INVESTIGATION INITIATED BY FORMER LOUISIANA ATTORNEY GENERAL: Kahn Swick & Foti, LLC Investigates Salix Pharmaceuticals Ltd. Following Disclosure of Disappointing Third Quarter Results and Resignation of CFO

NEW ORLEANS--()--Former Attorney General of Louisiana, Charles C. Foti, Jr., Esq., a partner at the law firm of Kahn Swick & Foti, LLC (“KSF”), announces that KSF has commenced an investigation into Salix Pharmaceuticals Ltd. (Nasdaq: SLXP).

On November 6, 2014, Salix announced disappointing financial results for third quarter 2014, including a $88.6 million net loss, or $1.39 per diluted share for the quarter, and a downward revision of the Company’s previous full-year revenue guidance. Salix further announced the resignation of its chief financial officer, and named a senior vice president as interim CFO until a permanent successor is found. Reports indicate that the CFO resigned due to an accounting scandal involving inventory levels of key gastrointestinal drugs, forcing the reduction in the Company’s financial forecasts for the remainder of the year.

On this news, the price of Salix’s shares plummeted by almost 40%.

KSF’s investigation is focusing on whether Salix and/or its officers and directors violated state or federal securities laws.
