On January 25, 2017, McKesson announced its financial and operating results for the third quarter of fiscal year 2017. McKesson advised investors that its poor financial results were “a result of the generic pricing actions [McKesson] began to implement late in our second quarter,” as McKesson’s “prices were ultimately set at a lower level than our initial expectations that were included in our previous guidance.” On this news, McKesson’s share price fell $12.55, or nearly 8.3%, to close at $138.55 per share on January 26, 2017, thereby injuring investors.
The complaint filed in this class action alleges that the Company made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) McKesson and several of its industry peers colluded to fix the price of certain generic drugs; (2) the collusive conduct constituted a violation of federal antitrust laws; (3) consequently, McKesson's revenues during the Class Period were, in part, the result of illegal conduct and were therefore unsustainable; (4) McKesson lacked effective internal controls over financial reporting; and (5) as a result, McKesson's public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.
