On April 18, 2018, Defendants announced (1) their financial guidance issued on February 1, 2018 should no longer be relied upon, (2) Aceto anticipates recording asset impairment charges in the range of $230 million to $260 million on certain currently marketed and pipeline generic products, and (3) Aceto’s Chief Financial Officer (Edward Borkowski) resigned after just two months in that position.
This news drove the price of Aceto shares down $4.74, or over 64%, to close at $2.66 that day.
“We’re focused on investors’ losses and whether Aceto and senior officers knowingly violated Generally Accepted Accounting Principles,” said Hagens Berman partner Reed Kathrein.
