On January 25, 2019, Helius announced receipt of a request for additional data and information from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) related to the Company’s request for de novo classification and 510(k) clearance of its Portable Neuromodulation Stimulator (“PoNS”) device.  On this news, Helius’s stock price fell $0.48 per share, or approximately 6%, to close at $7.13 per share on January 25, 2019. 

Then, on April 10, 2019, Helius disclosed that the FDA had denied regulatory clearance of the PoNS device because the Company had failed to provide sufficient clinical data to show that the device was effective.  On this news, Helius’s stock price fell $4.11, or more than 66%, to close at $2.10 per share on April 10, 2019.
