The Klein Law Firm Announces a Class Action Filed on Behalf of SCYNEXIS, Inc. Shareholders and a Lead Plaintiff Deadline of May 8, 2017 (SCYX)

NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / April 27, 2017 / The Klein Law Firm announces that a class action complaint has been filed on behalf of shareholders of SCYNEXIS, Inc. (SCYX) 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. You are hereby notified that a securities class action lawsuit has been commenced in the USDC for the District of New Jersey.

In particular, 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.

Shareholders have until May 8, 2017 to petition the court for lead plaintiff status. Your ability to share in any recovery does not require that you serve as lead plaintiff. You may choose to be an absent class member.
