Tuesday, September 25, 2012

Holzer Holzer & Fistel, LLC Announces Investigation into Questcor Pharmaceuticals, Inc.10:10 EDT Tuesday, September 25, 2012 ATLANTA (Business Wire) -- Holzer Holzer & Fistel, LLC is investigating whether Questcor Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (“Questcor” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: QCOR) and/or its officers or directors have violated the federal securities laws. The investigation focuses on whether a series of statements regarding the Company's business, its prospects and its operations were materially false and misleading at the time they were made. On September 19, 2012, it was revealed to investors that Aetna had issued a Clinical Policy Bulletin stating that it would no longer provide coverage for Questcor's HP Acthar Gel because it believed the product was not “medically necessary” for a number of the conditions for which it was prescribed. Then, on September 24, 2012, Questcor revealed that the U.S. Government was investigating its marketing strategy and potential anticompetitive practices. The price of Questcor's stock fell dramatically following each announcement.
