The complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (a) the Company marketed its drugs in violation of the Federal Food Drug and Cosmetic Act; (b) as a result of these violations, the Company exposed itself to heightened regulatory scrutiny by the FDA and other governmental bodies; (c) as a result of the aforementioned, Aegerion's statements regarding the Company's business, operations, and prospects were materially false and misleading.

On January 10, 2014, Aegerion received a subpoena from the U.S. Department of Justice requesting documents relating to the marketing and sale of the Company's JUXTAPID capsules. Upon this news, shares of Aegerion fell almost 11% to close at $65.77 per share.
