BENSALEM, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep 13, 2018--Law Offices of Howard G. Smith announces that a class action lawsuit has been filed on behalf of investors that purchased Tetraphase Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (“Tetraphase” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ:  TTPH ) securities pursuant and/or traceable to the Company’s allegedly false and/or misleading registration statement and prospectus issued in connection with the Company’s July 2017 secondary public offering (“SPO” or the “Offering”); and/or, b) acquired Tetraphase securities between  March 8, 2017 and February 13, 2018, inclusive (the “Class Period”). Tetraphase investors have until  September 25, 2018  to file a lead plaintiff motion.

The complaint filed in this class action alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and/or misleading statements, as well as failed to disclose material adverse facts about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects. Specifically, Defendants failed to disclose: (1) Tetraphase was increasing the patient enrollment in its IGNITE3 trial from 1,000 patients to 1,200 patients to meet the trial’s primary endpoints (within the 10% non-inferiority margin); (2) The enrollment of more patients in the trial indicated that the existing population was inadequate to meet the trial’s primary endpoints; and (3) that, as a result of the foregoing, Defendants’ statements about Tetraphase’s business, operations, and prospects, were materially false and/or misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.

If you purchased shares of Tetraphase during the Class Period, 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.
