plaintiff will be selected from among applicants claiming the largest loss

The complaint accuses the defendants of violations of the Securities Exchange
Act of 1934 by virtue of the defendants' failure to disclose during the Class
Period that persistent low-grade liver function test abnormalities had been
observed in the Phase 2 study of its drug imetelstat in essential
thrombocythemia or polycythemia vera patients and that there was a high risk
of potential chronic livery injury following long-term exposure to the
drug.According to the complaint, following the Company's announcement on
March 12, 2014 that it had received a verbal notice from the U.S. Food and
Drug Administration that a clinical hold would be placed on imetelstat
clinical trials, the value of Geron shares declined significantly.
