Labaton Sucharow LLP Files Class Action Lawsuit Against Solazyme, Inc

Labaton Sucharow LLP filed a securities class action lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California. The lawsuit was filed on behalf of all persons or entities who, between February 27, 2014 and November 5, 2014, inclusive, purchased or otherwise acquired the publicly traded securities of Solazyme, Inc., including certain securities issued by Solazyme pursuant and/or traceable to either of two registered public offerings on or about March 27, 2014. The complaint charges Solazyme and certain of its officers and directors with violations of Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, and U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission Rule 10b-5 promulgated thereunder. The complaint alleges that certain Defendants made false and misleading statements and concealed material information relating to the construction progress, development, and expected production capacity of the company’s renewable oils production facility located in Moema, Brazil. Specifically, Defendants caused Solazyme securities to trade at artificially inflated prices by improperly concealing ongoing construction delays due to insufficient access to electricity and steam utility services. These challenges prohibited the Moema Facility from scaling its capacity production as projected. Additionally, the complaint alleges that Solazyme, certain of its officers and directors, and the underwriters of the Offerings violated Sections 11, 12(a)(2), and 15 of the Securities Act of 1933. The complaint alleges that certain Defendants made false and misleading statements and failed to disclose material adverse information in offering documents filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission in connection with the issuance of (i) approximately $149.5 million in convertible notes on or about March 27, 2014, and (ii) 5.75 million shares of common stock on the same day at $11.00 per share for aggregate gross proceeds of approximately $63.25 million.
