Solid Biosciences, Inc. (NASDAQ: SLDB)
Defendants conducted an initial public offering of Solid Biosciences on or about January 25, 2018.
In this IPO, the Company sold approximately 7 million shares at $16 per share to investors.
On March 15, 2018, Defendants announced the U.S. Food and Drug Administration placed a clinical hold on the Company’s Phase 1/2 trial assessing its SGT-001 drug in patients with Duchenne muscular dystrophy. This news drove the price of Solid Biosciences shares down $16.99, or about 65%, to close at $9.32.
The Motley Fool later reported that just prior to the IPO, a prominent researcher left its board because of risks associated with the drug delivery method for Solid Biosciences’ SGT-001 drug.
“We’re focused on investors’ losses and Defendants’ disclosures about internal concerns over the safety of the SGT-001 delivery method leading up to- and after- the IPO,” said Hagens Berman partner Reed Kathrein.
