INVESTOR ALERT: Levi & Korsinsky, LLP Notifies Shareholders of SCYNEXIS, Inc. of a Class Action Lawsuit and a Lead Plaintiff Deadline of May 8, 2017 - SCYX

NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / March 20, 2017 / The following statement is being issued by Levi & Korsinsky, LLP:

To: All persons or entities who purchased or otherwise acquired securities of SCYNEXIS, Inc. ("SCYNEXIS") (SCYX) (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. You are hereby notified that a securities class action lawsuit has been commenced in the USDC for the District of New Jersey. To get more information, go to: http://www.zlk.com/pslra/scynexis-inc, or contact Joseph E. Levi, Esq. either via email at jlevi@levikorsinsky.com or by telephone at (212) 363-7500, toll-free: (877) 363-5972. There is no cost or obligation to you.

The complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (i) SCYNEXIS's lead product, SCY-078, posed substantial undisclosed health and safety risks; (ii) consequently, the Company had overstated the drug's approval prospects and/or commercial viability; and (iii) as a result of the foregoing, SCYNEXIS'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.

If you suffered a loss in SCYNEXIS, you have until May 8, 2017 to request that the Court appoint you as lead plaintiff. Your ability to share in any recovery doesn't require that you serve as a lead plaintiff.
