INVESTOR ALERT: Law Offices of Howard G. Smith Announces Investigation on Behalf of Cocrystal Pharma, Inc. (formerly BioZone Pharmaceuticals, Inc.) Investors
BENSALEM, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep 28, 2018--Law Offices of Howard G. Smith announces an investigation on behalf of Cocrystal Pharma, Inc. investors (“Cocrystal” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: COCP ) concerning the Company and its officers’ possible violations of federal securities laws.
On September 7, 2018, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) filed a lawsuit against former officers of BioZone as well as other individuals and corporations, alleging violations of the federal securities laws. The SEC complaint alleges that defendants were participants in “highly profitable ‘pump-and-dump’ schemes . . . from 2013 through 2018” in the stock of three public companies, including BioZone, that, “while enriching Defendants by millions of dollars, left retail investors holding virtually worthless shares.” On this news, Cocrystal’s share price fell more than 14%, to close at $3.20 on September 7, 2018, thereby injuring investors.
If you purchased Cocrystal securities, have information or would like to learn more about these claims, or have any questions concerning this announcement or your rights or interests with respect to these matters, please contact Howard G. Smith, Esquire, of Law Offices of Howard G. Smith, 3070 Bristol Pike, Suite 112, Bensalem, Pennsylvania 19020 by telephone at (215) 638-4847, toll-free at (888) 638-4847, or by email to email@example.com, or visit our website at www.howardsmithlaw.com.
