Marinus describes itself as a “commercial-stage pharmaceutical company dedicated to the development of innovative therapeutics for the treatment of seizure disorders, including rare genetic epilepsies and status epilepticus, which includes the use of ZTALMY® (ganaxolone).”   Pertinent to this action is the Randomized Therapy in Status Epilepticus trial (RAISE), which the Company has described as a “pivotal Phase 3 trial in refractory status epilepticus (RSE) patients.”

According to the Complaint, Defendants failed to disclose to investors that: (i) Defendants understated the risk of failure to meet the early-stopping criteria in the RAISE trial; and (ii) a possible consequence of failing to meet the early stopping criteria in the RAISE trial would be that Marinus would stop the separate Phase 3 RAISE II trial.

On April 15, 2024, before the market opened, Marinus revealed that the RAISE trial had not met early stopping criteria and that the Company would implement cost-saving measures.

On this news, Marinus’ stock price fell over 82%, to close at $1.30 per share on April 15, 2024.

Then, on May 8, 2024, before the market opened, Marinus announced cost cutting measures including: (i) stopping clinical trial enrollment in the RAISE and RAISE II trials; (ii) deferring IV ganaxolone manufacturing investments; (iii) reducing the Company’s workforce by approximately 20%; (iv) additional cost reductions across both R&D and general and administrative (G&A) functions; and (v) other operational changes to increase overall efficiency of the Company’s operations.

On this news, Marinus’ stock price fell almost 9%, closing at $1.43 per share on May 8, 2024.

A lead plaintiff is a representative party acting on behalf of other class members in directing the litigation. Your ability to share in any recovery doesn’t require that you serve as lead plaintiff.
