NEW YORK, Nov. 21, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Pomerantz LLP is investigating claims on behalf of investors of Axovant Gene Therapies Ltd. (“Axovant” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: AXGT). Such investors are advised to contact Robert S. Willoughby at email@example.com or 888-476-6529, ext. 7980.
The investigation concerns whether Axovant and certain of its officers and/or directors have engaged in securities fraud or other unlawful business practices.
On October 29, 2020, Axovant disclosed that manufacturing delays would potentially postpone the start of enrollment in the Company’s planned randomized, sham-controlled trial of AXO-Lenti-PD gene therapy for Parkinson’s disease, and that the trial seemed unlikely to enroll patients by the end of the calendar year 2021.
On this news, Axovant’s stock price fell $1.52 per share, or 41.64%, to close at $2.13 per share on October 30, 2020.
