The lawsuit has been filed in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California on behalf of all those who purchased Amyris securities between March 15, 2018 and March 19, 2019 (the “Class Period”). The case, Mulderrig et al v. Amyris, Inc. et al, No. 19-cv-01765 was filed on April 3, 2019, and has been assigned to Judge Yvonne Gonzalez Rogers.

The lawsuit focuses on whether the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws by making false and/or misleading statements and/or failing 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.

On November 13, 2018 when the Company reported poor financial results, which it attributed to the “volatility of the Vitamin E market.”

Then, on March 19, 2019, after the market closed, the Company filed a Notification of Late Filing on Form 12b-25 with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”).
