On January 9, 2020, Portola Pharmaceuticals announced preliminary unaudited Andexxa global net revenues for 2019. According to the announcement, the company estimates Andexxa revenues to be around $28 million for the fourth quarter. Oppenheimer’s analyst, Jay Olson, stated that this estimate is "well below our $39 million estimate and $41 million consensus."

According to the announcement, Portola attributed the decrease in fourth quarter Andexxa sales, in part, to "hospital pharmacies curtailed use of Andexxa following drug utilization reviews in an effort to manage pharmacy budgets."

Following this news, on January 10, 2020, Portola’s stock price dropped more than 40% to close at $14.76, causing harm to investors.
