The lawsuit centers on claims that Biogen made false or misleading statements about its:

  • Compliance controls: The lawsuit alleges Biogen overstated the effectiveness of its compliance procedures in foreign countries, potentially exposing the company to legal and financial risks.
  • Alzheimer’s drug portfolio: Investors allege Biogen inflated the potential of its Alzheimer’s drugs, including Leqembi, and downplayed the challenges to market access.
  • Financial guidance: The suit claims Biogen failed to properly disclose the negative impact of the Reata acquisition on its 2023 earnings.
