NO CLASS HAS YET BEEN CERTIFIED IN THE ABOVE ACTION. UNTIL A CLASS IS CERTIFIED, YOU ARE NOT REPRESENTED BY COUNSEL UNLESS YOU RETAIN ONE. YOU MAY CHOOSE TO DO NOTHING AT THIS POINT AND REMAIN AN ABSENT CLASS MEMBER.

The Complaint asserts violations of the federal securities laws against Catalyst and certain of its officers and directors for issuing materially false and misleading information about the Company. The Complaint asserts that Catalyst failed to disclose that one of its competitors has already been manufacturing a drug biologically equivalent to Firedapse – a drug Catalyst has claimed to be developing and marketing – and providing the drug to patients to treat Lambert-Eaton Myasthenic Syndrome free of charge, through a compassionate use program. The lawsuit asserts that the disclosure of this adverse information caused Catalyst's share price to fall, damaging investors.

If you wish to serve as lead plaintiff, you must move the Court no later than December 24, 2013. A lead plaintiff is a representative party acting on behalf of other class members in directing the litigation.
