SAN DIEGO, Sept. 23, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Shareholder rights law firm Johnson & Weaver, LLP's investigation into whether certain officers and directors of Carbylan Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ: CBYL) violated federal securities laws continues. Carbylan is a specialty pharmaceutical company, focusing on the development and commercialization of novel and proprietary combination therapies.
On April 9, 2015, Carbylan's stock traded as high as $6.58, the same day the Company sold 13 million shares of stock in its initial public stock offering (the "IPO"), raising $65.0 million in new capital. However, since the IPO, Carbylan's stock has tumbled, falling from its high of $9.22 on June 8, 2015 to close at $0.49 on September 22, 2016.
On February 1, 2016 Carbylan stock plunged nearly 50 percent after the company disclosed top-line results from a Phase 3 trial, COR1.1. Then, in April 2016, Carbylan announced that it was suspending further clinical development of its pain relief product, Hydros–TA, and it is actively pursuing a merger or acquisition of the company. In concurrence, Carbylan also announced an immediate reduction in its workforce of 14 of its current 17 employees to preserve capital. Specifically, Johnson & Weaver's investigation seeks to determine whether certain statements regarding the Company's business metrics and financial prospects were not as strong as represented in the Registration Statement.
