NEW YORK, April 11, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Pomerantz LLP is investigating claims on behalf of investors of Indivior PLC ("Indivior" or the "Company") (OTCMKTS: INVVY). Such investors are advised to contact Robert S. Willoughby at firstname.lastname@example.org or 888-476-6529, ext. 9980.
The investigation concerns whether Indivior and certain of its officers and/or directors have engaged in securities fraud or other unlawful business practices.
On April 9, 2019, the U.S. Department of Justice ("DOJ") announced that a federal grand jury had indicted Indivior "for engaging in an illicit nationwide scheme to increase prescriptions of Suboxone Film, an opioid drug used in the treatment of opioid addiction." The DOJ stated that "[a]ccording to the indictment, Indivior obtained billions of dollars in revenue from Suboxone Film prescriptions by deceiving health care providers and health care benefit programs into believing that Suboxone Film was safer, less divertible, and less abusable than other opioid-addiction treatment drugs." Following news of Indivior's indictment, the Company's American depositary receipt price fell $4.48 per share, or 66.08%, to close at $2.30 per share on April 10, 2019.
