Filing Date: April 15, 2019
According to the Complaint, AmpliPhi BioSciences is a clinical-stage biotechnology company that works to develop bacteriophage-based therapies for the treatment of antibiotic-resistant bacterial infections. The Company is engaged in identifying and developing naturally occurring bacteriophages in order to develop second-generation bacteriophage products. The Company develops these phage products with the intention of targeting a specific disease-causing bacterial-pathogen.
On January 4, 2019, the Company issued a press release announcing the proposed merger of the Company with C3J Therapeutics, Inc.
The Complaint alleges that on April 04, 2019, in order to convince the Company’s stockholders to vote in favor of the Proposed Transaction, the Board authorized the filing of a materially incomplete and misleading proxy statement with the SEC (the “Proxy Statement”), in violation of Sections 14(a) and 20(a) of the Exchange Act.
This case was voluntarily dismissed on May 13, 2019.

About the Company & Securities Data
"Company" information provides the industry and sector classification and headquarters state for the primary company-defendant in the litigation. In general, "Securities" information provides the ticker symbol, market, and market status for the underlying securities at issue in the litigation.
In most cases, the primary company-defendant actually issued the securities that are the subject of the litigation, and the securities information and company information relate to the same entity. In a small subset of cases, however, the primary company-defendant is not the issuer (for example, cases against third party brokers/dealers), and the securities information and company information do not relate to the same entity.
