Rigrodsky & Long, P.A. announces that a complaint has been filed in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York on behalf of all persons or entities that purchased the common stock of Horizon Pharma plc (“Horizon” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ GS: HZNP) between March 13, 2014 and February 26, 2016, inclusive (the “Class Period”), alleging violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 against the Company and certain of its officers (the “Complaint”).

The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, defendants made materially false and misleading statements, and omitted materially adverse facts, about the Company’s business, operations and prospects.  As a result of defendants’ alleged false and misleading statements, the Company’s stock traded at artificially inflated prices during the Class Period.

On this news, shares of Horizon dropped over 13%, closing at $17.16 per share on February 29, 2016, on heavy trading volume.
