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

IRVINE, CA / ACCESSWIRE / April 15, 2017 / Khang & Khang LLP (the "Firm") announces the filing of a class action lawsuit against SCYNEXIS, Inc. ("SCYNEXIS" or the "Company") (SCYX). Investors who purchased shares (1) pursuant and/or traceable to the Registration Statement and Prospectus issued in connection with the Company's Initial Public Offering on or about May 2, 2014 and/or (2) between May 2, 2014 and March 2, 2017 inclusive (the "Class Period"), are encouraged to contact the Firm in advance of the May 8, 2017 lead plaintiff motion deadline.

If you purchased SCYNEXIS shares during the IPO or 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 via 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.

The Complaint alleges that during the Class Period, SCYNEXIS made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose: that the Company's lead product, SCY-078, posed substantial undisclosed health and safety risks; that SCYNEXIS overstated the drug's approval prospects and/or commercial viability; and as a result of the above, the Company's public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times. On March 2, 2017, SCYNEXIS announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration "informed the Company to hold the initiation of any new clinical studies with the intravenous (IV) formulation of SCY-078 until the FDA completes a review of all available pre-clinical and clinical data" of the formulation. The hold stems from "three mild-to-moderate thrombotic events in healthy volunteers" receiving the formulation. When this news was announced, the stock price of SCYNEXIS fell, thus harming investors.
