The lawsuit has been filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey on behalf of all those who purchased Cocrystal and/or BioZone securities between September 23, 2013 and September 7, 2018 (the “Class Period”).  The case, Pepe v. Cocrystal Pharma, Inc. f/k/a BioZone Pharmaceuticals, Inc. et al, No. 2:18-cv-14091 was filed on September 20, 2018.

The lawsuit focuses on whether the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws by failing to disclose that: (1) the company and certain of its officers were engaged in a pump-and-dump scheme to artificially inflate Cocrystal's stock price; (2) this illicit scheme would result in governmental scrutiny, including from the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”); (3) the Company failed to abide by SEC disclosure regulations; and (4) as a result, the Company’s statements about Cocrystal's business, operations and prospects were materially false and misleading.

Specifically, on September 7, 2018, the SEC filed a lawsuit against Phillip Frost, one of the Company’s directors and shareholders, and others, alleging violations of the federal securities laws. According to the SEC’s complaint, Phillip Frost allegedly participated in at least two unlawful pump-and-dump schemes involving various microcap companies.

After the lawsuit was announced, Cocrystal’s share price fell from $3.74 per share on September 6, 2018, to a closing price of $3.16 on September 11, 2018—a $0.58 or a 15.51% drop.
