INVESTOR ALERT Law Offices of Howard G. Smith Announces the Filing of a Securities Class Action on Behalf of NRx Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NRXP) Investors
Law Offices of Howard G. Smith announces that a class action lawsuit has been filed on behalf of investors who purchased NRx Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (“NRx” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: NRXP) securities between June 1, 2021 and November 4, 2021, inclusive (the “Class Period”). NRx investors have until March 21, 2022 to file a lead plaintiff motion.
Investors suffering losses on their NRx investments are encouraged to contact the Law Offices of Howard G. Smith to discuss their legal rights in this class action at 888-638-4847 or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
In June 2021, NRx announced that it filed an application with U.S. Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) requesting Emergency Use Authorization (“EUA”) for ZYESAMI (Aviptadil-acetate) to treat critically ill COVID-19 patients suffering with respiratory failure.
On November 4, 2021, NRx announced that the FDA declined to issue an EUA for ZYESAMI “due to insufficient data regarding the known and potential benefits of the medicine and the known and potential risks of ZYESAMI in patients suffering from Critical COVID-19 with respiratory failure.”
On this news, NRx’s stock fell $2.27, or 25.5%, to close at $6.65 per share on November 5, 2021, thereby injuring investors.
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 to investors that: (1) the ZYESAMI EUA Application contained insufficient data regarding the potential benefits and risks of ZYESAMI; (2) accordingly, the FDA was unlikely to approve the ZYESAMI EUA Application in its present form; and (3) as a result, Defendants’ positive statements about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects were materially misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis at all relevant times.
If you purchased NRx 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.
