GERN is a clinical stage company with only one drug in development –
imetelstat – which is in Phase 2 trials. The Complaint alleges that between
June 16, 2013, and March 11, 2014, Geron omitted to disclose material facts
showing imetelstat's poor prospects, including that (1) persistent low-grade
liver function test (LFT) abnormalities had been observed in the Phase 2 study
of imetelstat in essential thrombocythemia (ET) or polycythemia vera (PV)
patients and (2) there was a potential risk of chronic liver injury following
long-term exposure to imetelstat.

On March 12, 2014, GERN announced that the Food and Drug Administration had
verbally informed it that a clinical hold would be placed on imetelstat
clinical trials, citing the LFT abnormalities and the potential risk of
chronic liver injury. The FDA is also concerned that both may be irreversible.

That day, GERN's stock price fell $2.71, or 62%, on heavy volume, damaging
investors.
