Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP Encourages Investors Who Suffered Losses in Excess of $100,000 Investing in Achillion Pharmaceuticals, Inc. to Contact the Firm

NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 11/15/13 -- Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities law firm, reminds investors in Achillion Pharmaceuticals, Inc. ("Achillion" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: ACHN) of the December 9, 2013 deadline to seek the role of lead plaintiff in a federal securities class action lawsuit filed against Achillion and certain executives.

A complaint has been filed on behalf of all persons who purchased Achillion securities between April 21, 2012 and September 27, 2013 (the "Class Period") in the District of Connecticut.

The complaint alleges that the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws with respect to its disclosures concerning its business, operations, and prospects.

Specifically, the action alleges that throughout the Class Period Achillion issued false and/or misleading statements regarding the effect of sovaprevir, the Company's investigative hepatitis drug, on liver enzyme elevations.

On July 1, 2013, the Company disclosed that the FDA had placed a clinical hold on sovaprevir after elevations in liver enzymes were noted in a Phase I trial. Then, on September 27, 2013, Achillion announced that it had received a response from the FDA effectively informing the Company that the removal of the clinical hold was not warranted.

Following this news, the Company's stock declined $4.22 per share, or over 58%, to close at $3.02 per share on September 30, 2013.
