Probes Reporter stated that it received an update from the SEC that confirms Valeant's involvement in an ongoing enforcement proceedings, which remain undisclosed. The investigation "somehow pertains to the conduct, transactions, and/or disclosures of Valeant Pharmaceuticals."

The report added that the ongoing proceedings "likely started last fall and absolutely should have been disclosed by now."
