The complaint charges defendants with falsely describing the terms of a $300 million senior secured loan to Synergy as non-dilutive to shareholders.
However, when Synergy disclosed the loan agreement in an SEC filing on November 9, 2017, its terms revealed that the loan would likely be dilutive. This news drove the price of Synergy shares down $0.25, or about 8.4%, to close at $2.72 on November 10, 2017.
Then, on November 14, 2017, Synergy filed a prospectus for the issuance of nearly 22 million shares and warrants to purchase nearly 22 million shares. This news drove the price of Synergy shares down $0.14, or about 6.9% to close at $1.89 on November 15, 2017.
“We’re focused on the defendants’ statements about the financing’s impact on investors that, if false, damaged them,” said Hagens Berman partner Reed Kathrein.
