Novan is a clinical-stage drug development company that focuses on the development and commercialization of nitric oxide-based therapies in dermatology. At all relevant times, Novan’s lead product candidate was SB204, a once-daily topical gel for the treatment of acne vulgaris.
The filed complaint in the Middle District of North Carolina alleges that in the IPO Registration Statement and Prospectus, and throughout the Class Period, defendants made materially false and misleading statements regarding Novan’s business and outlook, specifically regarding SB204.
Defendants stated that Novan had commenced and performed two identically designed Phase 3 clinical trials for SB204. Defendants’ statements falsely stated that the two Phase 3 clinical trials were identical and omitted specific facts as to why the two critical trials were, in fact, not identical
As a result of the defendants’ false statements during the Class Period, the price of Novan stock climbed significantly above the IPO price of $11.00 per share, reaching as high as $29.09 per share on December 7, 2016.
Before the market opened on January 27, 2017, Novan announced the top-line results of its two Phase 3 clinical trials of SB204. Although the drug hit all of its goals in one of the trials, it failed to beat a placebo in the other trial. On this news, the price of Novan stock dropped from a close of $18.70 per share on January 26, 2017, to a close of $4.86 per share on January 27, 2017, a decline of 74%.
