INVESTOR ALERT: Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP Encourages Investors Who Suffered Losses in Excess of $100,000 Investing in Ampio Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (AMPE) to Contact the Firm

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - June 12, 2015) - Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities law firm, is investigating potential securities fraud at Ampio Pharmaceuticals, Inc. ("Ampio" or the "Company") (NYSE: AMPE).

The investigation focuses on whether the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws by failing to disclose that (1) the STEP Study was conducted by a clinical research organization which lacked autonomy; and (2) the trial drug supply for the STEP Study was shipped to clinical sites at lower temperatures than were permitted by the drug's specifications. As a result, the Company announced on August 21, 2014, that data and other results from the clinical research would be delayed.

After the announcement, the Company's share price declined from a closing price of $7.54 on August 20, 2014, to a closing price of $5.66, or more than 24.9%, on August 21, 2014.

Furthermore, on April 20, 2015, Ampio announced that "the multiple injection STRIDE study AP008 did not reach its primary endpoint against the saline control test." On this news, shares of Ampio fell $5.18 per share, to close at $2.69, or more than 65.8%, on April 24, 2015.
