The lawsuit has been filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey on behalf of all those who purchased Immunomedics common stock between August 23, 2018 and December 20, 2018 (the “Class Period”). The case, Odeh v. Immunomedics, Inc. et al., No. 18-cv-17645 was filed on December 27, 2018, and has been assigned to Madeline Cox Arleo.
The lawsuit focuses on whether the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws by misleading investors about an FDA citation regarding a host of violations observed at its Morris Plains, New Jersey drug substance manufacturing facility. These violations included manipulated bioburden samples, misrepresentation of an integrity test procedure in the batch record, and backdating of batch records, such as dates of analytical results.
Specifically, on December 17, 2018, when FDAnews.com published an article titled “FDA Hits Immunomedics for Data Integrity Breach.” According to this article, “[t]he FDA cited Immunomedics for a host of violations – including its handling of a data integrity breach – observed at its Morris Plains, New Jersey, drug substance manufacturing facility between August 6 and 14.” The article states that this breach included “manipulated bioburden samples, misrepresentation of an integrity test procedure in the batch record, and backdating of batch records, such as dates of analytical results.”
On this news, the Company’s stock price fell from an $18.54 opening price on December 17, 2018 to a closing price of $17.86–a $0.68 or 3.67% drop.
Then, on December 20, 2018, Favus Institutional Research issued a Report discussing the data integrity breach.
On this news, the Company’s stock price fell from $17.64 per share on December 19, 2018 to $14.17 per share on December 20, 2018–a $3.47 or 19.67% drop.
