Foti, Jr., remind investors that they have only until March 16, 2020 to file lead plaintiff applications in securities class action lawsuits against Portola Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NasdaqGS: PTLA), if they purchased the Company’s securities between January 8, 2019 and February 26, 2020, inclusive (the "Class Period"). These actions are pending in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California.

About the Lawsuit

Portola and certain of its executives are charged with failing to disclose material information during the Class Period, violating federal securities laws. On January 9, 2020, the Company disclosed preliminary net revenues for 4Q2019 significantly below analysts’ consensus estimates due to falling demand for its lead product, Andrexxa, and that it was taking a substantial charge of $5 million for unused and returned product previously recognized as revenue. On this news, the price of Portola’s shares plummeted.

The first-filed case is Paul Hayden, et al. v. Portola Pharmaceuticals, Inc., et al., 20-cv-00367.
