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 Acer securities between September 25, 2017 and June 24, 2019 (the “Class Period”). The case, Sell v. Acer Therapeutics Inc. et al., No. 19-cv-06137 was filed on July 1, 2019.
The lawsuit focuses on whether the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws by making false and/or misleading statements and/or failing to disclose that: (1) Acer lacked sufficient data to support filing EDSIVO’s Non-Drug Application (“NDA”) with the Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) for the treatment of vascular Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (“vEDS”); (2) the Ong Trial was an inadequate and ill-controlled clinical study by FDA standards, and was comprised of an insufficiently small group size to support EDSIVO’s NDA; (3) consequently, the FDA would likely reject EDSIVO’s NDA; and (4) as a result, the Company’s public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.
On June 25, 2019, Acer issued a press release disclosing that the FDA had rejected the Company’s NDA for EDSIVO. That same day, Reuters published an article titled “FDA declines to approve Acer Therapeutics’ rare genetic disorder treatment.” In discussing the FDA’s rejection of the Company’s FDA, the Reuters article noted, among other things, how “[t]he small group size” of the Ong Trial had “raised questions among experts about the adequacy of the trial results.”
On this news, Acer’s stock price fell from $19.28 per share on June 24, 2019 to $4.12 per share on June 25, 2019—a $15.16 or 78.63% drop.
