SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 14, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hagens Berman Sobol Shapiro LLP alerts investors in Synergy Pharmaceuticals, Inc.

/EIN News/ -- or contact Reed Kathrein, who is leading the firm’s investigation, by calling 510-725-3000 or emailing

The complaint charges Defendants with making false or misleading statements about the terms of a $300 million senior secured loan to Synergy from CRG Partners III L.P.  More specifically, the Complaint charges Defendants falsely described this financing as non-dilutive to shareholders on September 5, 2017.

When Synergy filed the CRG loan agreement with the SEC on November 9, 2017, it revealed that the financing would likely be dilutive to shareholders.  In response to this news, the price of Synergy shares fell $0.25, or about 8.4%, to close at $2.72 on November 10, 2017.

On November 14, 2017, Synergy filed a prospectus for the issuance of nearly 22 million shares and warrants to purchase nearly 22 million shares.  In response, the price of Synergy shares fell $0.14, or about 6.9% to close at $1.89 on November 15, 2017.

“We’re focused on the Defendants’ statements about the financing’s impact on equity investors that, if false, damaged them,” said Hagens Berman partner Reed Kathrein.
