The filed Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and/or misleading statements, as well as failed to disclose material adverse facts about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects.

Specifically, Defendants failed  to disclose  that: 

  • the FDA would find Ampio’s AP-003-C Phase 3 clinical trial inadequate and not well-controlled;
  • as a result, Ampio had not successfully completed two pivotal clinical trials for Ampion; 
  • consequently, Defendants’ public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.

On August 7, 2018, after the market closed, Ampio announced updated business disclosures relating to its AP-003-A and AP-003-C trials, disclosing that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) found that a single trial the AP-003-A study alone does not appear to provide sufficient evidence of effectiveness to support a Biologics License Application (“BLA”) and that the FDA does not consider the AP-003-C trial to be an adequate and well-controlled clinical trial.

On this news, shares of Ampio fell $2.25 per share or over 78% to close at $0.61 per share on August 8, 2018.
