NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / January 22, 2020 / Bernstein Liebhard, a nationally acclaimed investor rights law firm, reminds investors of the deadline to file a lead plaintiff motion in a securities class action filed on behalf of investors that purchased or acquired the securities of Adamas Pharmaceuticals, Inc. ("Adamas" or the "Company") (ADMS) between August 8, 2017, and September 30, 2019, inclusive (the "Class Period"). The lawsuit filed in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California alleges violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.

The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and misleading statements, and failed to disclose material adverse facts about the Company's business, operations, and prospects. Specifically, it is alleged that Defendants made materially false and misleading statements about: (1) managed care's acceptance of GOCOVRI; (2) the breadth of insurer coverage for GOCOVRI prescriptions; and (3) the impact of the Company's commercialization efforts. In addition, it is alleged that Defendants failed to disclose: (1) that health insurers were excluding GOCOVRI from their prescription formularies or requiring patients to use "step therapy" - i.e., making patients try immediate-release amantadine prior to covering GOCOVRI; (2) that the rapid increase in physicians prescribing GOCOVRI during the Class Period was not due to its efficacy; and (3) that, as a result of the foregoing, the Company's financial statements and Defendants' statements about Adamas's business, operations, and prospects, were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.
After the market closed on March 4, 2019, during Adamas's Q4 2018 conference call with investors, Adamas walked back its previous prescription growth estimates for GOCOVRI, warned of a continued slow-down in GOCOVRI prescriptions, and refused to make further predictions about GOCOVRI's ability to achieve a sizeable market share. On this news, Adamas's stock fell $3.99 per share, or 32.84%, to close at $8.16 per share on March 5, 2019.
On September 30, 2019, Bank of America/Merrill Lynch analyst Tazeen Ahmad lowered its rating for Adamas shares to "Underperform" noting "existing overhangs for ADMS: (1) Gocovri coverage: a number of national formularies exclude Gocovri. We expect reimbursement hurdles in MSWI space especially with generic Ampyra launch." On this news, Adamas shares fell a further 42.83% from $7.05 per share on September 26 to $4.03 by October 3, 2019.
