On September 7, 2018, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission
("SEC") filed a lawsuit against Opko and its CEO and Chairman Phillip
Frost, alleging that Opko and Frost engaged in pump-and-dump schemes. On
this news, Opko's share price fell $1.01 per share, or more than 18%, to
close at $4.58 on September 7, 2018, thereby injuring investors.

The complaint filed in this class action alleges that defendants made
false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1)
OPKO and its Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Phillip Frost, were
engaged in a pump-and-dump scheme with several other individuals and
companies in their investments in several penny stocks; (2) this illicit
scheme would result in governmental scrutiny including from the SEC; and
(3) as a result, defendants' statements about OPKO's business,
operations and prospects were materially false and misleading and/or
lacked a reasonable basis at all relevant times.
