GW Pharmaceuticals is a British biopharmaceutical company that discovers, develops, and commercializes cannabinoid prescription medicines. On January 10, 2016, The Sunday Times of London reported that in its annual report the Company disclosed that its internal financial controls were not effective as of September 30, 2015. It also revealed that management had determined that it lacked effective controls over the completeness and valuation of clinical trial accruals. The annual report went further and stated that management does not have sufficiently precise controls to evaluate the completeness and accuracy of the calculation of clinical trial accruals due to the incorrect allocation of expenditure to clinical studies and that the Company lacks sufficiently precise control to ensure completeness of clinical trial accruals in connection with contractual progress payment liabilities.

Following this news, GW Pharmaceuticals shares fell $3.55, or nearly 6%, to close at $56.31 per share on January 11, 2016. The share price continues to tumble and is currently trading at $42.63 per share.

The complaint alleges that GW Pharmaceuticals violated the securities laws by failing to disclose to investors that the Company lacked effective internal controls, lacked effective internal controls over their clinical trial accruals, and as a result their statements were false, misleading, and lacked a reasonable basis throughout the class period.
