LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Lundin Law PC, a shareholder rights firm, announces the filing of a class action lawsuit against Amyris, Inc. (“Amyris” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: AMRS) concerning possible violations of federal securities laws. Investors who purchased shares between March 2, 2017 and April 17, 2017 inclusive (the “Class Period”), should contact the firm prior to the June 19, 2017 lead plaintiff motion deadline.
No class has been certified in the above action. Until a class is certified, you are not considered represented by an attorney. You may also choose to do nothing and be an absent class member.
According to the Complaint, during the Class Period, Amyris made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose: that in the first quarter of 2017, the Company made a decision to take an equity stake in one of Blue California’s affiliates that focused on the sweetener market instead of cash payment under the license agreement; that due to this 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 that as a result of the above, the Company’s public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times. When this information was released, shares of Amyris dropped in value.
Lundin Law PC was founded by Brian Lundin, a securities litigator based in Los Angeles dedicated to upholding shareholders’ rights.
