PITTSBURGH & BERLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--RenovaCare, Inc. (“RenovaCare” or the “Company”) (RCAR), developer of a breakthrough technology for spraying a patient’s own skin cells onto burns and wounds, announces that it has received video evidence showing what appears to be predatory trading practices of several FINRA member firms in its stock.
RenovaCare has informed investigatory agents of FINRA about these extensive and, in the Company’s opinion, potentially illegal, on-going predatory trading practices, engaged in by certain FINRA member firms, as more fully shown in the video. These firms may be covertly collaborating with the short seller syndicate targeting the Company.
The Company is proceeding with the filing of a formal complaint regarding these “bear raid” trading practices with both FINRA and the SEC and will explore all potential private legal remedies available to it.
These FINRA member firms, some very well-known, we believe, and as clearly evidenced on multiple video recordings, have exacerbated the adverse impact of recent “short and distort” activities.
As reported to stockholders on February 12, 2018, a known “short and distort” syndicate has engaged in an ongoing smear campaign of disseminating grossly misleading, inaccurate and distorted facts and misinformation, including false allegations of insider selling.
RenovaCare confirms that none of its officers and directors have ever sold any Company shares; and, its majority stockholder, Kalen Capital Corporation, has not sold any Company shares since 2008. In fact, Kalen Capital Corporation has been a major supporter, having invested, since 2008, an additional $5.7 million.
These short sellers spread false rumors and innuendos of impropriety with business affiliates, partners and collaborators to disparage the good reputation of RenovaCare and thereby enhancing their profit at the expense of Company stockholders. Often, this is accomplished by the “short and distort” syndicate enlisting members of the media and others, who may unwittingly write stories based on the grossly misleading and inaccurate statements of fact.
RenovaCare strongly believes that it has an obligation to protect its stockholders from adverse financial and reputational harm caused by these unfounded and potentially illegal activities. Such actions undermine the integrity of the Company, its management and its majority stockholder, Kalen Capital Corporation.
Left unaddressed, such activities could impede ongoing efforts to commercialize a technology that has been validated by numerous peer-reviewed scientific papers and covered in many highly regarded publications, including Bloomberg, Forbes, CNN, Newsweek and has successfully treated over 70 severe burn patients. Of course, none of this is mentioned, intentionally so, in the current “short and distort” campaign.
*RenovaCare products are currently in development. They are not available for sale in the United States. There is no assurance that the company’s planned or filed submissions to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, if any, will be accepted or cleared by the FDA.
RenovaCare, Inc. is developing first-of-their-kind autologous (self-donated) stem cell therapies for the regeneration of human organs, and novel medical grade liquid sprayer devices. Its initial product under development targets the body’s largest organ, the skin. The company’s flagship technology, the CellMist™ System, uses its patented SkinGun™ to spray a liquid suspension of a patient’s stem cells – the CellMist™ Solution – onto wounds. RenovaCare is developing its CellMist™ System as a promising new alternative for patients suffering from burns, chronic and acute wounds, and scars. In the US alone, this $45 billion market is greater than the spending on high-blood pressure management, cholesterol treatments, and back pain therapeutics.
