About the Lawsuit
Zymergen and certain of its executives are charged with failing to disclose material information in its IPO Registration Statement and Prospectus, violating federal securities laws. On August 3, 2021, post-market, the Company disclosed that it “recently became aware of issues with its commercial product pipeline that will impact the Company’s delivery timeline and revenue projections,” specifically, that “several key target customers encountered technical issues in implementing Hyaline [its first product] into their manufacturing processes.” The Company also disclosed that its total addressable market appeared to be smaller than previously expected and it “no longer expects product revenue in 2021, and expects product revenue to be immaterial in 2022.”
On this news, shares of Zymergen fell $26.58 per share, or 76%, to close at $8.25 per share on August 4, 2021, representing a nearly 73% decline from the IPO price.
The case is Shankar v. Zymergen Inc., et al., 21-cv-06028.
