The lawsuit has been filed in the U.S. District Court for the District Court of New Jerseyon behalf of all those who purchased electroCore securities pursuant and/or traceable to the registration statement and prospectus issued in connection with the Company’s June 2018 initial public offering, and/or purchased or otherwise acquired electroCore securities between June 22, 2018 and September 25, 2019, inclusive. The case, Turnofsky v. electroCore, Inc., No. 19-cv-18400 was filed on September 26, 2019.
The lawsuit focuses on whether the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws by failing to disclose material adverse facts about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects. Specifically, Defendants failed to disclose to investors: (1) that the Company’s lead product, gammaCore, did not enjoy any advantages over other acute treatments for migraines and episodic cluster headaches; (2) that, as a result, doctors and patients were unlikely to adopt gammaCore over existing treatments; (3) that the Company’s voucher program was not effective to increase adoption of gammaCore; (4) that the Company lacked sufficient resources to successfully commercialize gammaCore; (5) that the Company’s business plan and strategy was not sustainable because electroCore lacked sufficient revenue to be profitable; (6) that the Company’s product registry and efforts were ineffective to initiate reimbursement policies by commercial payors for gammaCore; (7) that the lack of reimbursement would materially impact adoption and sales of gammaCore; (8) that the Company lacked sufficient clinical data demonstrating that gammaCore was effective and safe for migraine prevention; (9) that, as a result, the Company’s 510(k) submission for the use of gammaCore for migraine prevention was unlikely to be approved by the FDA; and (10) that, as a result of the foregoing, Defendants’ positive statements about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects, were materially misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.
On May 14, 2019, the Company announced first quarter 2019 financial results that fell short of investors’ expectations, reporting $410,000 net sales and operating loss of $14.2 million.
On this news, electroCore’s stock price fell from $5.33 per share on May 14, 2019 to $3.75 per share on May 15, 2019—a $1.58 or 29.64% drop.
Then, on September 25, 2019, the Company revealed that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration requested more information and analysis of clinical data for electroCore’s 510(k) submission, which seeks an expanded indication for the use of gammaCore.
On this news, electroCore’s stock price fell from $3.36 per share on September 24, 2019 to $2.57 per share on September 25, 2019—a $0.79 or 23.52% drop.
By the commencement of this action, electroCore stock was trading as low as $1.25 per share, a nearly 92% decline from the $15 per share IPO price.
