San Diego, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/18/2019 -- An investor, who purchased shares of Myriad Genetics, Inc. (NASDAQ: MYGN), filed a lawsuit over alleged violations of Federal Securities Laws by Myriad Genetics, Inc.

Investors who purchased shares of Myriad Genetics, Inc. (NASDAQ: MYGN) have certain options and for certain investors are short and strict deadlines running. Deadline: November 26, 2019.

Salt Lake City, UT based Myriad Genetics, Inc., a molecular diagnostic company, develops and markets predictive, personalized, and prognostic medicine tests worldwide.

On August 13, 2019, after the market closed, Myriad Genetics, Inc issued its fourth quarter and full year results for 2019, reporting that revenue in the fourth quarter was 2% below expectations largely due to lower reimbursement for its expanded carrier screening test. Later that day, on Myriad's earnings conference call with investors, Bryan Riggsbee, Myriad's Chief Financial Officer, also revealed that "the FDA requested changes to the GeneSight [Psychotropic] test offering" and that Myriad has "been in ongoing discussions with the FDA regarding its request." Shares of Myriad Genetics, Inc. (NASDAQ: MYGN) declined from $47.10 per share on August 13, 2019 to as low as $22.32 per share on August 23, 2019.

The plaintiff claims that between September 2, 2016 and August 13, 2019, the defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that GeneSight lacked evidence or information sufficient to support the tests in their current form, including their purported benefits, that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration ("FDA") had requested changes to GeneSight and questioned the validity of the test's purported benefits, that Myriad had been in ongoing discussions with the FDA regarding the FDA's requested changes to GeneSight, that Myriad's acquisition of Counsyl – and thereby, Foresight – caused the Company to incur the risk of suffering from lower reimbursement for its expanded carrier screening tests, which had the potential to, and actually did, materialize into a material negative impact on the Company's revenue, and that as a result, Myriad's public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times

Those who purchased shares of Myriad Genetics, Inc. (NASDAQ: MYGN) have certain options and should contact the Shareholders Foundation.
