On October 23, 2015, the Company announced that the FDA failed to approve the new drug application ("NDA") for one of the Company's major potential revenue drivers, Evomela -- a drug directed at patients with multiple myeloma. The filed Complaint asserts that during the Class Period, the Company made repeated false and misleading statements concerning the ability of Evomela to drive the Company's revenues, and provided assuring statements to the public that the FDA would approve its NDA, allowing the drug to be marketed immediately. When the truth was disclosed on October 23, 2015, the Company's stock closed at $5.33, down $1.31, a 20% decline, and has yet to recover.
