NEW YORK, March 24, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Rosen Law Firm, a global investor rights law firm, announces the filing of a class action lawsuit on behalf of purchasers of Mallinckrodt Public Limited Company securities (MNK) from November 25, 2014 through January 18, 2017, inclusive (the "Class Period").

NO CLASS HAS YET BEEN CERTIFIED IN THE ABOVE ACTION. UNTIL A CLASS IS CERTIFIED, YOU ARE NOT REPRESENTED BY COUNSEL UNLESS YOU RETAIN ONE. YOU MAY ALSO REMAIN AN ABSENT CLASS MEMBER AND DO NOTHING AT THIS POINT. YOU MAY RETAIN COUNSEL OF YOUR CHOICE.

According to the lawsuit, throughout the Class Period Mallinckrodt and its Chief Executive Officer, Mark Trudeau, made a series of false and misleading statements and failed to disclose material adverse facts about the long-term sustainability of Mallinckrodt's monopolistic HP Acthar Gel ("Acthar") revenues and the exposure of Acthar to reimbursement rates by Medicare and Medicaid. Specifically, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that Acthar's monopoly status as the only FDA-approved adrenocorticotropic hormone preparation was the product of unlawful anticompetitive practices and failed to disclose that its increasing reliance on Medicare and Medicaid meant that Mallinckrodt's monopolistic Acthar revenue would be threatened if the government took action to limit the price paid for this drug by taxpayers. When the true details entered the market, the lawsuit claims that investors suffered damages.

A class action lawsuit has already been filed. If you wish to serve as lead plaintiff, you must move the Court no later than March 27, 2017.
