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 Aclaris securities between May 8, 2018 and June 20, 2019 (the “Class Period”). The case, Rosi v. Aclaris Therapeutics, Inc., No. 1:19-cv-07118 was filed on July 30, 2019.
The lawsuit focuses on whether the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws by making materially false and/or misleading statements, as well as failing to disclose material adverse facts about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects. Specifically, Defendants failed to disclose to investors: (1) that the Company’s advertising materials minimized the risks and overstated the efficacy of ESKATA to generate sales; (2) that, as a result, the Company was reasonably likely to face regulatory scrutiny; and (3) that, as a result of the foregoing, defendants’ positive statements about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects were materially misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.
On June 20, 2019, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (“FDA”) stated that an advertisement for Aclaris’s hydrogen peroxide topical solution, Eskata, “makes false or misleading claims” regarding the product’s risk and efficacy.
Specifically, “a direct-to-consumer video of an interview featuring a paid Aclaris spokesperson” was “especially concerning from a public health perspective because it fails to include information regarding the serious risks associated with Eskata, which bears warnings and precautions related to the risks of serious eye disorders… in the case of exposure to the eye and severe skin reactions including scarring.”
On this news, Aclaris’s stock price fell from $5.11 to $4.54 over the next two trading sessions to $4.54 on June 21, 2019—a $0.57 or a 11.15% drop.
