On July 27, 2017, the pulmonary arterial hypertension drug maker disclosed that it has set aside $210 million in connection to a possible settlement with the U.S. Department of Justice concerning alleged violations of the federal False Claims Act and anti-kickback laws. The DOJ previously subpoenaed United Therapeutics for information about its contributions to non-profit organizations that provide financial assistance to patients with out-of-pocket drug costs. The company stated that it expects any settlement would also include a corporate integrity agreement, and the company may incur significant future costs to comply with that agreement.

On this news, United Therapeutics’ share price fell $6.30, or 4.79%, to close at $125.10 on July 27, 2017.
