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 Novavax, Inc. who purchased shares between March 2, 2021 and October 19, 2021.
The filed complaint alleges that defendants made materially false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that:
(i) Novavax overstated its manufacturing capabilities and downplayed manufacturing issues that would impact its approval timeline for NVX-CoV2373, a protein-based vaccine candidate engineered from the genetic sequence of the first strain of the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus; (ii) as a result, Novavax was unlikely to meet its anticipated Emergency Use Authorization regulatory timelines for NVX-CoV2373; (iii) accordingly, the Company overstated the regulatory and commercial prospects for NVX-CoV2373; and (iv) as a result, the Company’s public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.
If you wish to choose counsel to represent you and the class, you must apply to be appointed lead plaintiff and be selected by the Court.

Members of the class will be represented by the lead plaintiff and counsel chosen by the lead plaintiff. No class has yet been certified in the above action. Appointment as Lead Plaintiff is not required to partake in any recovery.
