Lawsuit Overview

Defendant:Synergy Pharmaceuticals, Inc.
Date Filed:February, 8th 2018
Sector:Health Care
Industry:Major Pharmaceuticals
Class Start Date:November, 10th 2016
Class End Date:November, 14th 2017

According to the Complaint, Synergy is a biopharmaceutical company focused on development and commercialization of therapies to treat Gastro-Intestinal disorders and diseases.

According to the law firm press release, on September 5, 2017, the Defendants issued a press release announcing that Synergy closed on a "non-dilutive" $300 million loan from CRG Partners III L.P., which would be available to Synergy "when needed" and fund the Company's operations through 2019. On November 14, 2017, the end of the Class Period, Synergy revealed that terms of the loan agreement, omitted from Defendants' prior statements regarding the loan, prevented it from accessing $200 million of the loan without conducting a dilutive secondary offering or offerings of shares to raise cash and, as such, the Company was conducting a secondary offering of its shares. Thus, contrary to Defendants' statements at the beginning of the Class Period, the loan was not available to Synergy "when needed," would result in dilution of the outstanding shares, and would not be sufficient to fund the Company's operations through 2019, without dilution. On the news, Synergy's share price plunged, trading as low as $1.68 per share, thereby injuring Class members.
