The lawsuit has been filed in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York on behalf of all those who purchased Tetraphase securities pursuant and/or traceable to the Company’s false and/or misleading registration statement and prospectus issued in connection with the Company’s July 2017 SPO and/or between March 8, 2017 and February 13, 2018 (the “Class Period”). The case, Garity v. Tetraphase Pharmaceuticals, Inc. et al., No. 18-cv-06797 was filed on July 27, 2018.
The lawsuit focuses on whether the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws by failing to disclose that: (1) it was increasing the patient enrollment in its IGNITE3 trial of eravacyline in complicated urinary tract infection from 1,000 patients to 1,200 patients to meet the trial’s primary endpoints; and (2) the enrollment of more patients in the trial indicated that the existing population was inadequate to meet the trial’s primary endpoints.
Specifically, on February 13, 2018, Tetraphase announced that its IGNITE3 trial failed to achieve its co-primary efficacy endpoints.
On this news the announcement, TTPH’s share price fell from $5.43 per share on February 13, 2018 to a closing price of $2.15 on February 14, 2018—a $3.28 or a 60.41% drop.
