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 Abeona securities between May 31, 2018 and September 23, 2019 (the “Class Period”). The case, Majumdar v. Abeona Therapeutics Inc. et al., No. 19-cv-10181 was filed on November 1, 2019, and has been assigned to Judge Andrew L. Carter, Jr.
The lawsuit focuses on whether the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws by failing to disclose that: (1) Abeona’s Chemical, Manufacturing and Controls (“CMC”) and internal controls and procedures and/or compliance policies were inadequate; (2) the Company failed to provide sufficient data points on the transport stability of EB-101 to clinical sites, or such transport stability was insufficient; (3) it was foreseeable that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) would reject approval for the start of the VITAL Study until such issues were addressed; and (4) as a result, Abeona’s public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.
On September 23, 2019, Abeona issued a press release announcing receipt of a clinical hold letter from the FDA, “clarifying that the FDA will not provide approval for the Company to begin its planned Phase 3 clinical trial for EB-101 [a/k/a, the VITAL Study] until it submits to the FDA additional data points on transport stability of EB-101 to clinical sites” (the “September 2019 Press Release”). The September 2019 Press Release also disclosed that Abeona had been working with the FDA for at least a year to address issues with the Company’s CMC.
On this news, Abeona’s stock price fell from $3.26 per share on September 20, 2019 to a closing price of $2.87 per share on September 23, 2019—a $0.39 or 11.96% drop.
