The lawsuit has been filed in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania on behalf of all those who purchased Verrica securities between September 16, 2019 and June 29, 2020 (the "Class Period"). The case, Potter v. Verrica Pharmaceuticals Inc., et al., No. 20-cv-03447 was filed on July 14, 2020.
Verrica develops medications for viral skin diseases requiring medical interventions. VP-102 is Verrica’s lead product candidate for the treatment of molluscum contagiosum.
The lawsuit focuses on whether the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws by failing to disclose to investors: (1) that the Company’s proprietary applicator used for VP-102 posed certain safety risks if the instructions were not properly followed; (2) that, as a result, Verrica would incorporate certain user features to mitigate the safety risk; (3) that the addition of the user feature would require additional testing for stability supportive data; (4) that, as a result of the foregoing, regulatory approval for VP-102 was reasonably likely to be delayed; and (5) 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 29, 2020, Verrica disclosed receipt of a letter from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration ("FDA") regarding the Company's New Drug Application for VP-102 for the treatment of molluscum contagiosum. The letter identified certain deficiencies that preclude discussion of labeling and post-marketing requirements. Moreover, according to the Company, the FDA's information requests have included "a specific request related to a potential safety issue with the applicator that could arise if the instructions for use were not properly followed."
On this news, Verrica's share price fell from $14.07 per share on June 29, 2020 to a closing price of $11.01 on June 30, 2020: a $3.06 or a 21.75% drop.
