Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP Encourages Investors Who Suffered Losses in Excess of $100,000 Investing in PDL BioPharma, Inc. (PDLI) to Contact the Firm

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - September 22, 2014) - Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities law firm, reminds investors in PDL BioPharma, Inc. ("PDL" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: PDLI) of the November 17, 2014 deadline to seek the role of lead plaintiff in a federal securities class action lawsuit filed against PDL and certain executives.

A complaint has been filed in the United States District Court for the District of Nevada on behalf of all persons who purchased or otherwise acquired PDL securities between November 6, 2013 and September 16, 2014, inclusive (the "Class Period").

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 during the Class Period, PDL made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (i) the Company had overstated its total revenues, royalty revenues, net income, and net cash provided by operating activities; (ii) the Company had understated its operating expenses; and (iii) the Company did not properly classify royalty and milestone payments in connection with an agreement with Depomed, Inc.

On September 16, 2014, PDL announced that on September 11, 2014, the Company had been orally notified by Ernst & Young LLP, its independent registered accounting firm, that it was resigning effective September 11, 2014. The resignation was confirmed in a letter delivered to PDL on September 15, 2014.
