BALA CYNWYD, October 16, 2019 /Access Wire/ – Law office of Brodsky & Smith, LLC reminds investors of the deadline to file to be a lead plaintiff regarding claims against Myriad Genetics, Inc. (“Myriad” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq – MYGN – News) for possible breaches of Federal Securities law.

According to the complaint, on August 13, 2019, during after-market hours, Myriad issued an earnings release wherein Myriad reported its fiscal fourth quarter and full year 2019 financial results. Therein, Capone disclosed that “[u]nfortunately, revenue in the fourth quarter was two percent below expectations largely due to lower reimbursement for our expanded carrier screening test” – i.e., Foresight.  Later that day, Myriad filed an Annual Report on a Form 10-K with the SEC, reporting Myriad’s financial and operating results for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2019. In the Form 10-K, the defendants disclosed that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) had questioned whether the validity of GeneSight’s purported benefits had been established. The Form 10-K also revealed that, since at least late 2018, the FDA had increasingly questioned the claims of marketed genetics tests, such as GeneSight.  Following this news, Myriad’s stock price fell $19.05 per share, or 42.76%, to close at $25.50 per share on August 14, 2019.

The complaint alleges that, throughout the Class Period, the defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (i) GeneSight lacked evidence or information sufficient to support the tests in their current form, including their purported benefits; (ii) the FDA had requested changes to GeneSight and questioned the validity of the test’s purported benefits; (iii) Myriad had been in ongoing discussions with the FDA regarding the FDA’s requested changes to GeneSight; (iv) Myriad’s acquisition of Counsyl—and thereby, Foresight—caused Myriad to incur the risk of suffering from lower reimbursement for its expanded carrier screening tests, which had the potential to, and actually did, materialize into a material negative impact on Myriad’s revenue; and (v) as a result, Myriad’s public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.
