DEADLINE ALERT: Bronstein, Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC Reminds Investors of Class Action Against Egalet Corporation (EGLT) and Lead Plaintiff Deadline - March 28, 2017

NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / March 20, 2017 / Bronstein, Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC reminds investors that a class action lawsuit has been filed against Egalet Corporation ("Egalet" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: EGLT) and certain of its officers, and is on behalf of shareholders who purchased or otherwise acquired Egalet securities between December 15, 2015, and January 9, 2017, both dates inclusive (the "Class Period"). Such investors are advised to join this case by visiting the firm's site: http://www.bgandg.com/eglt.

The class action lawsuit seeks to recover damages against Defendants for alleged violations of the federal securities laws under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the "Exchange Act").

The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose material adverse information about its lead product, ARYMO ER, and the likelihood that it would receive oral abuse-deterrent labeling.

On January 9, 2017, Egalet released a statement announcing the approval of its product Arymo ER. Later that day, the U.S. Federal Drug Administration stated that a competitor product MorphaBond "has marketing exclusivity for labeling describing the expected reduction of abuse of single-entity extended-release morphine by the intranasal route due to physicochemical properties." Following this news, Egalet stock dropped, thus damaging investors.

A class action lawsuit has already been filed. If you wish to review a copy of the Complaint, you can visit the firm's site: http://www.bgandg.com/eglt, or you may contact Peretz Bronstein, Esq. or his Investor Relations Analyst, Yael Hurwitz of Bronstein, Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC at 212-697-6484. If you suffered a loss in Egalet, you have until March 28, 2017 to request that the Court appoint you as lead plaintiff. Your ability to share in any recovery doesn't require that you serve as a lead plaintiff.
