According to the complaint, Anavex issued misleading statements and failed to disclose that the Company had used a paid stock promoter to artificially inflate the Company’s share price.

On December 29, 2015, Anavex disclosed that it had received a subpoena from the SEC on December 22, 2015. Anavex stated, in part, that “[t]he Company believes the subpoena and investigation relate to the recent unusual activity in the market for the Company’s shares.” Then on December 30, 2015, Seeking Alpha published a report entitled “Anavex: A Regulatory Target Damaged By Incriminating Evidence.” On this news, Anavex stock fell $0.78, or 12.42%, to close at $5.50 per share.
