The investigation focuses on whether certain individuals violated federal securities laws by, among other things, failing to disclose that: (1) the Company had inaccurately claimed that the Food and Drug Administration (the “FDA”) was granting K-V the exclusive distribution rights over “Makena,” a drug used to prevent miscarriages; (2) the FDA would not be enforcing K-V’s rights by preventing the Company’s competitors from distributing generic formulations of the drug; and (3) the drug’s $1,500 price would reduce the availability of Makena to low-income and other at-risk groups.

On March 30, 2011, the FDA revealed that it did not intend to take enforcement action against K-V’s competitors for distributing generic versions of K-V’s Makena.
