Item 8.01 Other Events.

 

On June 16, 2022, in the purported shareholder class action lawsuit captioned Liu et al. v. Intercept Pharmaceuticals, Inc. et al., case number 20-3488, the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit entered a summary order affirming the order of the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York dated September 9, 2020.

 

In March 2020, the district court had dismissed the amended class action complaint (the “Complaint”) of the plaintiffs Liu et al., and on September 9, 2020, the district court denied the plaintiffs’ requests for reconsideration and for leave to amend their Complaint. The plaintiffs subsequently appealed the latter order, which has now been affirmed.
