NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Klein Law Firm announces that a class action complaint has been filed on behalf of shareholders of Amyris, Inc. (NASDAQ: AMRS) who purchased shares between March 2, 2017 and April 17, 2017. The action, which was filed in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California, alleges that the Company violated federal securities laws.
In particular, the complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, defendants made materially false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that (1) in the first quarter of 2017, Amyris made a decision to take an equity stake in one of Blue California’s affiliates that focused on the sweetener market in lieu of cash payment under the license agreement; (2) consequently, due to Amyris’ decision, Amyris would be unable to recognize $10 million in fourth quarter and fiscal year 2016 revenue from the license agreement with Blue California; and (3) as a result, defendants’ public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times. When the true details entered the market, the lawsuit claims that investors suffered damages.
Shareholders have until June 19, 2017 to petition the court for lead plaintiff status. Your ability to share in any recovery does not require that you serve as lead plaintiff. You may choose to be an absent class member.
