About the Lawsuit

Solazyme and certain of its executives are charged with failing to disclose material information during the Class Period and in connection with the March 27, 2014 Offerings, violating federal securities laws. 

Solazyme allegedly made false statements and omissions about its construction progress, development and production capacity at its renewable oils production facility located in Moema, Brazil (the "Moema Facility"), failing to disclose that the Moema Facility was experiencing construction delays due to insufficient access to electricity and steam utility services, and that these challenges would prohibit the Moema Facility from scaling its capacity production as projected.

On November 5, 2014, the truth regarding the Moema Project was revealed to investors, and the price of Solazyme's shares plummeted by 58%.
