NEW YORK, July 12, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities law firm, reminds investors of Amyris, Inc.("Amyris" or the "Company") (Nasdaq:AMRS) of the Monday, July 15, 2013 deadline to seek the role of lead plaintiff in a federal securities class action lawsuit filed against the Company and the President and Chief Executive Officer.

A complaint has been filed on behalf of all persons who purchased or otherwise acquired Amyris securities between April 29, 2011 and February 8, 2012 (the "Class Period").

The action alleges that the Company and the President and Chief Executive Officer violated federal securities laws with respect to its disclosures concerning business, operational, and compliance policies. Specifically, the action focuses on whether Amyris made false and misleading statements to the investing public regarding its ability to produce Biofene, a renewable chemical.

On February 9, 2012, the Company disclosed that there would be a decrease in Biofene production and that it needed to raise funds. Following this news, Amyris' stock dropped $2.74, or over 28%.
