On June 25, 2018, an analyst accused PolarityTE and senior management of fraud and stock manipulation. The analyst called on the SEC to immediately halt trading in the Company shares before insiders can further damage investors.

This news drove the price of PolarityTE shares down $10.59, or about 27%, to close at $28.14 that day.

“We’re focused on investors’ losses and the analyst’s accusations which, if true, could constitute egregious violations of the securities laws,” said Hagens Berman partner Reed Kathrein.
