NEW YORK, Aug. 12, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Jakubowitz Law announces that a securities fraud class action lawsuit has commenced on behalf of shareholders of Molecular Partners AG (NASDAQ: MOLN).
To receive updates on the lawsuit, fill out the form:
This lawsuit is on behalf of a class consisting of persons and entities that purchased or otherwise acquired: (a) Molecular Partners American Depositary Shares pursuant and/or traceable to certain documents issued in connection with the Company’s initial public offering conducted on or about June 16, 2021; and/or (b) Molecular Partners securities between June 16, 2021, and April 26, 2022.
Shareholders interested in acting as a lead plaintiff representing the class of wronged shareholders have until September 12, 2022 to petition the court. Your ability to share in any recovery doesn’t require that you serve as a lead plaintiff.
According to a filed complaint, Molecular Partners AG issued materially false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (i) the Company’s product, ensovibep, was less effective at treating COVID-19 than defendants had led investors to believe; that (ii) accordingly, the the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) was reasonably likely to require an additional Phase 3 study of ensovibep before granting the drug Emergency Use Authorization (“EUA”); (iii) waning global rates of COVID-19 significantly reduced the Company’s chances of securing EUA for ensovibep; (iv) another of the Company’s product candidates, MP0310, was less attractive to Molecular Partners’ collaborator, Amgen, than defendants had led investors to believe; (v) accordingly, there was a significant likelihood that Amgen would return to global rights of MP0310 to Molecular Partners; (vi) as a result of all the foregoing, the clinical and commercial prospects of ensovibep and MP0310 were overstated; and (vii) as a result, documents issues in connection with the Company’s initial public offer and defendants’ public statements throughout the class period were materially false and/or misleading and failed to state information required to be stated therein.
Jakubowitz Law is vigorous in pursuit of justice for shareholders who have been the victim of securities fraud. Attorney advertising. Prior results do not guarantee similar outcomes.
