According to the Complaint, throughout the Class Period, Akari made materially false and/or misleading statements, and/or failed to disclose materially adverse facts about its business, operations, and prospects. On April 26, 2017, Edison Research Ltd. issued a report on the Company called "Akari's Coversin matches Soliris in Phase II." The next day it was announced that the report was withdrawn due to "material inaccuracies." On May 11, 2017, Akari announced that CEO Dr. Gur Roshwalb has been placed on administrative leave while the Board of Directors reviews whether Dr. Roshwalb and other executives were involved with the materially inaccurate research report. When this information was announced, Akari shares fell in value, which harmed investors according to the Complaint.
