April 3, 2019

LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Apr 3, 2019--Glancy Prongay & Murray LLP  (“GPM”) announces that it has filed a class action lawsuit in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California, captioned Mulderrig v. Amyris, Inc. et al., (Case No. 3:19-cv-01765), on behalf of persons and entities that purchased or otherwise acquired Amyris, Inc. (NASDAQ: AMRS ) (“Amyris” or the “Company”) securities between March 15, 2018, and March 19, 2019, inclusive (the “Class Period”). Plaintiff pursues claims under Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”).

Investors are hereby notified that they have  60 days from the date of this notice to move the Court to serve as lead plaintiff in this action.

On March 19, 2019, Amyris announced was unable to file its annual report for fiscal year ended December 31, 2018 on time due to “the significant time and resources that were devoted to the accounting for and disclosure of the significant transactions with Koninklijke DSM N.V. that closed in November 2018.” The Company also disclosed that it was “in the process of completing its evaluation of internal control over financial reporting.”

On this news, Amyris’ share price fell $0.78, or nearly 20% to close at $3.10 per share on March 20, 2019, thereby injuring investors.

The complaint filed in this class action alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements, as well as failed to disclose material adverse facts about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects. Specifically, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose: (1) that the Company lacked sufficient resources to accurately account for certain transactions; (2) that, as a result, there was a material weakness in the Company’s internal controls over financial reporting; (3) that, as a result, the Company would be unable to timely file its annual report; and (4) that, as a result of the foregoing, Defendants’ positive statements about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects were materially misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.
