STEVENSON, Md.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The securities litigation law firm of Brower Piven, A Professional Corporation, announces that a class action lawsuit has been commenced in the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey on behalf of purchasers of SCYNEXIS, Inc. (Nasdaq: SCYX) (“SCYNEXIS” or the “Company”) who purchased or otherwise acquired SCYNEXIS securities pursuant and/or traceable to the Company’s Registration Statement and Prospectus issued in connection with its initial public offering on or about May 2, 2014, and/or on the open market between May 2, 2014 and March 2, 2017, inclusive (the “Class Period”). Investors who wish to become proactively involved in the litigation have until May 8, 2017 to seek appointment as lead plaintiff.
If you wish to choose counsel to represent you and the class, you must apply to be appointed lead plaintiff and be selected by the Court. The lead plaintiff will direct the litigation and participate in important decisions including whether to accept a settlement for the class in the action. The lead plaintiff will be selected from among applicants claiming the largest loss from investment in SCYNEXIS securities during the Class Period. Members of the class will be represented by the lead plaintiff and counsel chosen by the lead plaintiff. No class has yet been certified in the above action.
The complaint accuses the defendants of violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and the Securities Act of 1933 by virtue of the defendants’ failure to disclose in connection with the Company’s IPO on or about May 2, 2014 and during the Class Period that SCYNEXIS’ lead product SCY-078 entailed substantial undisclosed health and safety risks and the Company had overstated the drug’s approval prospectus and/or commercial viability.
According to the complaint, following a March 2, 2017 press release announcing the U.S. Federal Drug Administration’s clinical hold on clinical trials for the Company’s lead product, the value of SCYNEXIS’ shares declined significantly.
If you have suffered a loss in excess of $100,000 from investment in SCYNEXIS securities purchased on or after May 2, 2014 and held through the revelation of negative information during and/or at the end of the Class Period and would like to learn more about this lawsuit and your ability to participate as a lead plaintiff, without cost or obligation to you, please visit our website at http://www.browerpiven.com/currentsecuritiescases.html.
