Aurinia is a biopharmaceutical company that develops and commercializes therapies to treat various diseases with unmet medical need in Japan and the People’s Republic of China. The Company’s only product is LUPKYNIS, which it offers for the treatment of adult patients with active lupus nephritis.
The complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and misleading statements regarding the Company’s business, operations, and compliance policies. Specifically, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that:
- Aurinia was experiencing declining revenues;
- Aurinia’s 2022 sales outlook for LUPKYNIS would fall well short of expectations;
- accordingly, the Company had significantly overstated LUPKYNIS’s commercial prospects;
- as a result, the Company had overstated its financial position and/or prospects for 2022; and
- as a result, the Company’s public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.
On February 28, 2022, Aurinia issued a press release announcing its financial results for the quarter and full year ended December 31, 2021. Among other items, Aurinia reported a year-over-year revenue decline and announced a lower-than-expected sales outlook for 2022.
On this news, Aurinia’s common share price fell $3.94 per share, or 24.26%, to close at $12.30 per share on February 28, 2022.
