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 Sarepta securities between September 6, 2017 and August 19, 2019 (the “Class Period”). The case, Salinger v. Sarepta Therapeutics, Inc., No.19-cv-08122 was filed on August 30, 2019.
The lawsuit focuses on whether the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws by making materially false and misleading statements regarding Sarepta’s business, operational and compliance policies. Specifically, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) golodirsen posed significant safety risks to patients; (2) consequently, the NDA package for golodirsen’s accelerated approval was unlikely to receive FDA approval; and (3) as a result, Sarepta’s public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.
On August 19, 2019, post-market, Sarepta announced receipt of a Complete Response Letter (“CRL”) from the FDA regarding the Company’s NDA seeking accelerated approval of golodirsen for the treatment of DMD. Sarepta disclosed that “[t]he CRL generally cites two concerns: the risk of infections related to intravenous infusion ports and renal toxicity seen in pre-clinical models of golodirsen and observed following administration of other antisense oligonucleotides.”
On this news, Sarepta’s stock fell from $120.31 on August 19, 2019 to $102.07 on August 20, 2019—an $18.24 or 15.16% drop.
