The Gross Law Firm notifies investors that a class action has commenced in the United States District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania on behalf of shareholders of Viatris Inc. who purchased common stock between March 1, 2021 and February 25, 2022.
The filed complaint alleges that defendants made materially false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: i) the Company was experiencing significantly more competition in its United States complex generics business than disclosed; (ii) the Company was not able to effectively manage its base business erosion or create a stable revenue base; (iii) despite being on the Company’s only growth drivers, Viatris was actively planning to divest its biosimilars business in order to secure enough cash to let it purportedly meet its phase one goals; (iv) Viatris was deviating from the business model it touted throughout the Class Period and undertaking a significant global reshaping of its business which would undermine its ability to achieve stable revenue growth; and (v) the Company was anticipating less financial growth moving into 2022.
