Filing Date: May 31, 2018

According to the law firm press release, Recro is a specialty pharmaceutical company that develops non-opioid therapeutics for the treatment of pain in the post-operative setting. Recro offers its products to the medical industry. The Company’s lead product is a proprietary injectable form of meloxicam, a long-acting preferential COX-2 inhibitor (“IV meloxicam”) to be used for the management of moderate to severe pain.

The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and misleading statements regarding the Company’s business, operational and compliance policies. Specifically, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (i) IV meloxicam lacked supporting clinical data to show sufficient clinical benefits to receive U.S. Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) approval; and (ii) as a result, Recro’s public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.

On May 24, 2018, Recro announced that the FDA had declined to approve Recro's New Drug Application (“NDA”) for IV meloxicam. In its Complete Response Letter, the FDA stated that the drug's analgesic effects did not meet FDA expectations and raised questions related to chemistry, manufacturing and controls data.

On this news, Recro's share price fell $6.79, or 54.67%, to close at $5.63 on May 24, 2018.

On October 5, 2018, the Court issued an Order appointing Lead Plaintiff and Counsel. Lead Plaintiff filed an amended Complaint on December 10. On December 11, Lead Plaintiff re-filed the amended Complaint. Defendants filed a Motion to Dismiss the amended Complaint on February 8, 2019. On February 14, 2020, the Court granted Defendants' Motion to Dismiss. Plaintiff was given leave to amend the Complaint.

About the Company & Securities Data

"Company" information provides the industry and sector classification and headquarters state for the primary company-defendant in the litigation. In general, "Securities" information provides the ticker symbol, market, and market status for the underlying securities at issue in the litigation.

In most cases, the primary company-defendant actually issued the securities that are the subject of the litigation, and the securities information and company information relate to the same entity. In a small subset of cases, however, the primary company-defendant is not the issuer (for example, cases against third party brokers/dealers), and the securities information and company information do not relate to the same entity.
