CASE ALLEGATIONS: Ventyx is a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company that develops small molecule product candidates to address a range of inflammatory diseases.  According to the complaint, in 2022, Ventyx initiated a Phase 2 clinical trial of VTX958 for the treatment of moderate to severe plaque psoriasis.

The Ventyx class action lawsuit alleges that defendants throughout the Class Period and in the IPO’s offering documents made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (i) VTX958 was less effective in treating psoriasis than Ventyx and the other defendants had led investors to believe; (ii) as a result, VTX958’s clinical and/or commercial prospects were overstated; (iii) accordingly, Ventyx had misrepresented its ability to develop and commercialize effective product candidates; and (iv) Ventyx’s post-IPO business prospects were thus inflated.

The Ventyx class action lawsuit further alleges that on November 6, 2023, Ventyx disclosed that, “[a]lthough the [Phase 2] trial achieved its primary endpoint, the magnitude of efficacy observed did not meet our internal target to support advancement of VTX958 in plaque psoriasis.”  The complaint further alleges that based on these results, Ventyx announced that it “will terminate ongoing activities in the Phase 2 plaque psoriasis trial effective immediately” and “terminate the ongoing Phase 2 trial of VTX958 in psoriatic arthritis.”  On this news, the price of Ventyx common stock fell more than 80%.

THE LEAD PLAINTIFF PROCESS: The Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 permits any investor who purchased or acquired Ventyx securities during the Class Period and/or common stock pursuant and/or traceable to the IPO to seek appointment as lead plaintiff in the Ventyx class action lawsuit.  A lead plaintiff is generally the movant with the greatest financial interest in the relief sought by the putative class who is also typical and adequate of the putative class.  A lead plaintiff acts on behalf of all other class members in directing the Ventyx class action lawsuit.  The lead plaintiff can select a law firm of its choice to litigate the Ventyx class action lawsuit.  An investor’s ability to share in any potential future recovery is not dependent upon serving as lead plaintiff of the Ventyx class action lawsuit.
