Please complete this form and list your purchase and sale transaction(s) Solid Biosciences, Inc. (“Solid Biosciences”) (Nasdaq: SLDB) pursuant and/or traceable to the company’s registration statement and prospectus (collectively, the “Registration Statement”) issued in connection with the company’s January 25, 2018 initial public offering (“IPO” or the “Offering”); and/or, b) acquired Solid Biosciences’ securities between January 25, 2018, and March 14, 2018, inclusive (the “Class Period”).
Notice is hereby given that a class action lawsuit has been filed on behalf of those who: a) acquired common stock (“stock” or “shares”) of Solid Biosciences, Inc. (“Solid Biosciences”) (Nasdaq: SLDB) pursuant and/or traceable to the company’s registration statement and prospectus (collectively, the “Registration Statement”) issued in connection with the company’s January 25, 2018 initial public offering (“IPO” or the “Offering”); and/or, b) acquired Solid Biosciences’ securities between January 25, 2018, and March 14, 2018, inclusive (the “Class Period”).
According to the complaint, Solid Biosciences purportedly seeks to cure Duchenne muscular dystrophy, or DMD. The company’s lead product candidate, SGT-001, is a gene transfer under development to restore functional dystrophin protein expression in patients’ muscles. The company’s therapy uses adeno-associated virus (AAV) to deliver the transgene into the patient. On January 2, 2018, the company filed its IPO prospectus with the SEC, which forms part of the IPO Registration Statement that was declared effective on January 25, 2018. In the IPO, the company sold 7,000,000 shares of common stock at a price of $16.00 per share.
According to the complaint, on January 30, 2018, an article was published by various medical experts highlighting the risks of studies using high doses of gene therapies using adeno-associated virus (AAV). One of the article’s co-authors was Dr. James Wilson, a former member of the Solid Biosciences’ advisory board. Following this news, the company’s shares fell $1.20 per share, or over 5%, to close on January 30, 2018 at $22.50 per share.
Then, on March 14, 2018, after the close of trading, the company published a press release announcing that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration had placed a clinical hold on the SGT-001 Phase I/II clinical trial, IGNITE DMD. Following this news, on March 15, 2018, Solid Biosciences’ share price fell $16.99 per share, or over 60%, to close at $9.32 per share.
The complaint alleges that, throughout the Class Period, the defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) that Solid Biosciences’ lead drug candidate SGT-001 had a high likelihood of causing adverse events in patients; (2) that Solid Biosciences misled investors regarding the toxicity of SGT-001; and (3) that, as a result of the foregoing, the defendants’ statements in the Registration Statement regarding Solid Biosciences’ business, operations, and prospects, were materially false and/or misleading.
A lead plaintiff is a representative party that acts on behalf of other class members in directing the litigation. In order to be appointed lead plaintiff, the Court must determine that the class member’s claim is typical of the claims of other class members, and that the class member will adequately represent the class. Your ability to share in any recovery is not, however, affected by the decision whether or not to serve as a lead plaintiff. Any member of the purported class may move the court to serve as a lead plaintiff through counsel of their choice, or may choose to do nothing and remain an inactive class member.
