("Ocugen" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: OCGN) securities between February 2, 2021 and June 10, 2021, inclusive (the "Class Period").

Ocugen is a biopharmaceutical company. Pursuant to an agreement with Bharat Biotech, Ocugen has the exclusive right to develop, manufacture, and commercialize COVAXIN, a vaccine candidate for COVID-19.
On June 10, 2021, Ocugen announced that it would submit a biologics license application ("BLA") for COVAXIN, which has a longer approval process than an Emergency Use Authorization ("EUA") application, and that it anticipated conducting an additional clinical trial to support the submission.
On this news, the Company's share price fell $2.62 per share, or 28%, to close at $6.69 per share on June 10, 2021, thereby injuring investors.
The complaint filed alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and/or misleading statements, as well as failed to disclose material adverse facts about the Company's business, operations, and prospects. Specifically, Defendants failed to disclose to investors that: (1) the information submitted to the FDA was insufficient to support an EUA, (2) Ocugen would not file an Emergency Use Authorization with the FDA; and (3) as a result, Defendants' statements about its business, operations, and prospects, were materially false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis at all relevant times.
