IMPORTANT INVESTOR ALERT: Khang & Khang LLP Announces Securities Class Action Lawsuit against Amyris, Inc. and Encourages Investors with Losses to Contact the Firm

IRVINE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Khang & Khang LLP (the “Firm”) announces the filing of a class action lawsuit against Amyris, Inc. (“Amyris” or the “Company”) (AMRS). Investors who purchased or otherwise acquired shares between March 2, 2017 and April 17, 2017 inclusive (the “Class Period”), are encouraged to contact the Firm in advance of the June 19, 2017 lead plaintiff motion deadline.

If you purchased Amyris shares during the Class Period, please contact Joon M. Khang, Esquire, of Khang & Khang, 18101 Von Karman Avenue, 3rd Floor, Irvine, CA 92612, by telephone: (949) 419-3834, or by e-mail at joon@khanglaw.com.

There has been no class certification in this case. Until certification occurs, you are not represented by an attorney. You may choose to take no action and remain a passive class member.

According to the Complaint, during the Class Period, Amyris made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose: that in the first quarter of 2017, the Company made a decision to take an equity stake in one of Blue California’s affiliates that focused on the sweetener market instead of cash payment under the license agreement; that due to this decision Amyris would be unable to recognize $10 million in fourth quarter and fiscal year 2016 revenue from the license agreement with Blue California; and that as a result of the above, the Company’s public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.

If you wish to learn more about this lawsuit, or if you have questions concerning this notice or your rights, please contact Joon M. Khang, a prominent litigator for almost two decades, by telephone: (949) 419-3834, or by e-mail at joon@khanglaw.com.
