NEW YORK, March 3, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Rosen Law Firm, a global investor rights law firm, reminds purchasers of the securities of Portola Pharmaceuticals, Inc. between May 8, 2019 and January 9, 2020, inclusive (the "Class Period") of the important March 16, 2020 lead plaintiff deadline in the securities class action. The lawsuit seeks to recover damages for Portola investors under the federal securities laws.

NO CLASS HAS YET BEEN CERTIFIED IN THE ABOVE ACTION. UNTIL A CLASS IS CERTIFIED, YOU ARE NOT REPRESENTED BY COUNSEL UNLESS YOU RETAIN ONE. YOU MAY RETAIN COUNSEL OF YOUR CHOICE. YOU MAY ALSO REMAIN AN ABSENT CLASS MEMBER AND DO NOTHING AT THIS POINT. AN INVESTOR'S ABILITY TO SHARE IN ANY POTENTIAL FUTURE RECOVERY IS NOT DEPENDENT UPON SERVING AS LEAD PLAINTIFF.
According to the lawsuit, defendants throughout the Class Period made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) the six month shelf life of the short-dated Andexxa caused Portola to face a significant risk of returns from customers due to expiration before use; (2) Portola was shifting to a longer-dated Andexxa version with a shelf life of up to 36 months to exchange with short-dated versions at no cost to customers but at significant expense to the Company; (3) Portola had not established adequate reserves for returns; (4) because of utilization reviews, financially strapped hospitals and healthcare organizations were curtailing usage of Andexxa in order to make more efficient use of their budgets; (5) certain distributors were cutting back on orders of Andexxa as they were awash with inventory of Andexxa; (6) as a result, Portola was reasonably likely to need to "catch up" on accounting for return reserves; and (7) therefore, defendants' positive statements about the Company's business, operations, and prospects were materially misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis. When the true details entered the market, the lawsuit claims that investors suffered damages.
A class action lawsuit has already been filed. If you wish to serve as lead plaintiff, you must move the Court no later than March 16, 2020.
