The Gross Law Firm notifies investors that a class action has commenced in the United States District Court for the District of Maryland on behalf of shareholders of Emergent Biosolutions Inc. who purchased shares between July 6, 2020 and March 31, 2021.
The filed complaint alleges that defendants made materially false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (i) Emergent’s Baltimore plant had a history of manufacturing issues increasing the likelihood for massive contaminations; (ii) these longstanding contamination risks and quality control issues at Emergent’s facility led to a string of FDA citations; (iii) the Company previously had to discard the equivalent of millions of doses of COVID-19 vaccines after workers at the Baltimore plant deviated from manufacturing standards; and (iv) as a result of the foregoing, Defendants’ public statements about Emergent’s ability and capacity to mass manufacture multiple COVID-19 vaccines at its Baltimore manufacturing site were materially false and/or misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.
