comp-pr2017-175 22-Sep-2017 Complaint
According to the SEC, "Beginning in or about 2013 and continuing to in or about 2014, Aegerion misled investors about a key sales metric known as the "='conversion rate' ... 5. Aegerion's misrepresentations improperly inflated the company's stock price. It was not until October 2014 that Aegerion disclosed to investors that the conversion rate was actually in the range of 50 to 60 percent. Even then, Aegerion failed to reveal to investors that the conversion rate had hovered at around 50 percent since 2013. By engaging in the conduct described in this Complaint, Aegerion violated Section 17(a)(2) and (3) of the Securities Act of 1933"
