According to the lawsuit, defendants misrepresented and/or failed to disclose the true prospects for its PV-10 skin cancer drug. On January 23, 2014, Adam Feuerstein published an article on TheStreet.com alleging that Provectus management had misled investors about the potential for PV-10, questioning why the promised Phase 3 randomized controlled trial of PV-10 have not commenced and speculating that PV-10 may be obsolete in light of new skin cancer drugs being developed. On this news, Provectus stock fell $3.35 per share, or over 64%, on unusually heavy volume to close at $1.87 per share on January 23, 2014, damaging investors.
On May 20, 2014, Feuerstein published another article on TheStreet.com noting that Provectus had initially described its PV-10 drug as a "breakthrough" drug for skin cancer on its website, but had later amended its description to "investigational." Upon this revelation, Provectus stock dropped $0.31 per share, or over 10%, to close at $2.70 per share on May 20, 2014, further damaging investors.
On May 21, 2014, an article published on SeekingAlpha.com highlighted the failure of Provectus to commence a Phase 3 trial of PV-10 and alleged that the Company is connected to a stock promotion firm who recommended other stocks that were recently halted by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. On the same day, Provectus issued a press release refuting the allegations in the SeekingAlpha.com article. In reaction to this news, Provectus stock fell another $0.46 per share, or over 17%, on unusually heavy volume to close at $2.24 on May 21, 2014, further damaging investors.
