What is this all about?
On November 10, 2022, Veru. Inc.’s stock price plunged by over 54% in mid-morning trading after a Food and Drug Administration Advisory Committee voted against recommending Emergency Use Authorization for the Company’s COVID-19 pill VERU-111. The case alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements, as well as failed to disclose material adverse facts about the data from the VERU-111 Phase 3 trial and the Company’s interactions with the FDA. Specifically, Veru misled its shareholders to believe that the data from the Phase 3 trial was sufficient to support Emergency Use Authorization (“EUA”) and even the submission of a New Drug Application (“NDA”) without any further studies. VERU’s filings therefore concealed the true risks faced by the Company in gaining approval for its EUA request.
