The filed Complaint alleges that Defendants misrepresented the Company's progress toward successfully developing its COVID-19 vaccine (NVX-CoV2373), including:



  • overstating the Company's manufacturing capabilities and downplaying manufacturing issues that would impact the approval timeline for NVX-CoV2373;

  • concealing that the Company was unlikely to meet its anticipated EUA regulatory timelines;

  • exaggerating the regulatory and commercial prospects for NVX-CoV2373.


On August 5, 2021, the Company reported that it expected to file for NVX-CoV2373's EUA in the fourth quarter of 2021, rather than the third quarter of 2021. On this news, the Company's stock price fell by more than 19%.


Then, on October 19, 2021, Politico published an article entitled "'They rushed the process': Vaccine maker's woes hamper global inoculation campaign." The Politico article reported that the Company "faces significant hurdles in proving it can manufacture a shot that meets regulators' quality standards" with respect to NVX-CoV2373. The Politico article cited anonymous sources as stating that the Company's "issues are more concerning than previously understood" and that the Company could take until the end of 2022 to resolve its manufacturing issues and win regulatory authorizations and approvals.


On this news, the Company's stock price fell another 14.7%.
