The investigation concerns whether Amgen and certain of its officers and/or directors have engaged in securities fraud or other unlawful business practices.
On April 27, 2022, Amgen disclosed in its first quarter 2022 earnings release that "[o]n April 18, 2022, Amgen received a notice of deficiency from the [Internal Revenue Service (‘IRS')] for the 2013-2015 period proposing adjustments primarily related to the allocation of profits between certain of the Company's entities in the United States and the U.S. territory of Puerto Rico" which "seeks to increase Amgen's U.S. taxable income for the 2013-2015 period by an amount that would result in additional federal tax of approximately $5.1 billion, plus interest." The Company also disclosed that the IRS "notice proposes penalties of approximately $2 billion." On this news, Amgen's stock price fell sharply during intraday trading on April 28, 2022.
