BRIDGEWATER, N.J., June 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Aegerion Pharmaceuticals, Inc., a specialty pharmaceutical company focused on the treatment of cardiovascular and metabolic diseases, today announced the company has postponed its initial public offering (IPO).

"The company has decided not to move forward with the proposed IPO at this time," said Jerry Wisler, President and Chief Executive Officer.
