CASE ALLEGATIONS: Veru is primarily an oncology-based biopharmaceutical company that develops drugs for the management of breast and prostate cancers. Veru "opportunistically" developed sabizabulin (VERU-111), an orally administered "microtubule disruptor" for the treatment of COVID-19 in hospitalized patients at high risk for acute respiratory distress syndrome.
The Veru class action lawsuit alleges that throughout the Class Period, defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose material adverse facts about the data from the sabizabulin Phase 3 trial and Veru's interactions with the U.S. Food & Drug Administration. Specifically, Veru misled shareholders to believe the data from the Phase 3 trial was sufficient to support Emergency Use Authorization ("EUA") and the submission of a New Drug Application without any further studies. Veru's filings therefore concealed the true risks faced by Veru in gaining approval for its EUA request.
On November 9, 2022, the Pulmonary-Allergy Drugs Advisory Committee ("AdCom") voted against granting Veru's EUA request by an 8-5 margin. One AdCom member who voted against EUA approval explained that there was "no direct evidence to support [sabizabulin's] antiviral activity." On this news, Veru's stock price fell approximately 54%, damaging investors.
THE LEAD PLAINTIFF PROCESS: The Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 permits any investor who purchased or acquired Veru common stock during the Class Period to seek appointment as lead plaintiff in the Veru class action lawsuit. A lead plaintiff is generally the movant with the greatest financial interest in the relief sought by the putative class who is also typical and adequate of the putative class. A lead plaintiff acts on behalf of all other class members in directing the Veru class action lawsuit. The lead plaintiff can select a law firm of its choice to litigate the Veru class action lawsuit. An investor's ability to share in any potential future recovery is not dependent upon serving as lead plaintiff of the Veru class action lawsuit.
