The complaint alleges that during the Class Period, Defendants misrepresented the Company's current and future business and financial condition. In particular it is alleged that the Company issued positive statements concerning its drug Allovectin-7 and the drug's potential for approval from the Food and Drug Administration. On August 12, 2013, the Company issued a press release stating that the Phase 3 trial of Allovectin-7 failed to "meet either the primary or secondary efficacy endpoints." The Company also announced it would terminate the Allovectin program. In reaction to the news, shares of Vical fell from a previous close of $3.58 to close at $1.53 per share on heavy trading volume.
