On July 6, 2020, the Initial Final Determination was issued by the United States International Trade Commission ("ITC") in a case brought by Allergan and Medytox against Evolus, asserting that Evolus stole certain trade secrets to develop Jeuveau™. The ITC Judge determined that the Company misappropriated the botulinum toxin strain as well as the manufacturing processes that led to its development and manufacture. As a result, the ITC Judge recommended a ten-year long ban on the Company's ability to import Jeuveau™ into the United States and a ten-year-long cease and desist order preventing Evolus from selling Jeuveau™ in the United States.
On this news, the Company's share price declined materially, falling 37% over the course of two trading days, to close at $3.35 on July 8, 2020
