Amylyx Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (AMLX) Securities Fraud Class Action:

On March 8, 2024, Amylyx announced that topline results from its Global Phase 3 PHOENIX Trial of its product intended to treat patients with Lou Gehrig's disease -- RELYVRIO -- did not meet its primary endpoint of reaching statistical significance, "nor was there statistical significance seen in secondary endpoints."

This news sent the price of Amylyx shares crashing $16.27, or about 85% lower, during intraday trading on March 8, 2024.

The news follows the filing of a securities fraud class action complaint, which alleges that Amylyx made false and misleading statements and failed to disclose that: (1) it overstated RELYVRIO's commercial prospects; (2) patients were discontinuing treatment with RELYVRIO after 6 months; (3) the rate at which new patients were beginning treatment with RELYVRIO was declining; (4) accordingly, Amylyx overstated RELYVRIO's prescription rate; and (5) the company attempted to hide the foregoing negative trends by blocking analysts from viewing RELYVRIO prescription data.

Separate from the March 8, 2024 revelations, the complaint alleges investors began to learn the truth on Nov. 9, 2023, when Amylyx announced disappointing Q3 2023 financial results and blamed the slowdown in its business on increased discontinuations.

The same day, Investor's Business Daily published an article citing an Evercore ISI analyst, who reportedly questioned the company's assertion that new patients starting treatment with RELYVRIO was "steady," noted that his math suggested otherwise, and said that Amylyx blocked analysts from viewing RELYVRIO prescription data in the summer of 2023.

On the Nov. 9, 2023 news alone, the price of Amylyx shares crashed $5.74, or about 31% lower, on Nov. 9, 2023.

"We're investigating whether the Amylyx March 8 disclosure concerning RELYVRIO may warrant extending the alleged fraudulent period," said Reed Kathrein, the Hagens Berman partner leading the firm's investigation.
