About the Lawsuit
Affymax and certain of its senior executives are charged with issuing a series of materially false and misleading statements, during the Class Period, in violation of federal securities laws. These false statements and omissions included, in part, that: (i) Affymax was suffering from deficient internal controls and procedures; (ii) Affymax had filed to disclose its true financial and operational condition; and (iii) it failed to disclose that its financial statements were materially false and misleading.
On February 23, 2013, shares of Affymax declined 85%, over $14.00 per share, following a report that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration was requiring a total recall of the company's lead drug, due to reports of "serious and life-threatening" allergic reactions.
