TALIS’ ALLEGED MISCONDUCT
Talis develops diagnostic tests to enable accurate, reliable, low cost, and rapid molecular testing for infectious diseases. Specifically, the Talis One tests are being developed for respiratory infections, infections related to women’s health, and sexually transmitted infections. In its Registration Statement, Talis disclosed that in January 2021, the company submitted a request for an Emergency Use Authorization (“EUA”) to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) for its Talis One platform to perform COVID-19 testing.
Then, on March 8, 2021, Talis announced that it had withdrawn its EUA application for the Talis One COVID-19 test. In a press release, Talis revealed that “[i]n late February, the FDA informed the company that it cannot ensure the comparator assay used in the primary study has sufficient sensitivity to support Talis’s EUA application.” Following this news, Talis’ stock price fell $1.80, or 12%, to close at $12.85 per share on March 8, 2021.
On August 10, 2021, Talis revealed that its "development timelines have been extended by delays in the launching of [Talis'] COVID-19 test and manufacturing scale." On this news, Talis' stock price fell $0.58 per share, or 6%, to close at $8.39 per share on August 11, 2021. Then, on August 30, 2021, Talis announced the resignation of its Chief Executive Officer (“CEO”), Brian Coe. On this news, Talis' stock price fell $1.00 per share, or 11%, to close at $8.06 per share on August 31, 2021. Finally, on December 8, 2021, Talis announced that Brian Blaser, who had been appointed CEO on November 15, 2021, had stepped down from his position at Talis after only a week.
On this new, Talis' stock price fell $0.55 per share, or 11.39%, to close at $4.28 per share on December 8, 2021.
