The Law Offices of Vincent Wong Reminds Investors of a Class Action Involving TerraVia Holdings, Inc. and a Lead Plaintiff Deadline of January 17, 2017

The Law Offices of Vincent Wong announced that a class action lawsuit has been commenced in the USDC for the Northern District of California on behalf of investors who purchased TerraVia Holdings, Inc. securities between August 8, 2016 and November 7, 2016. According to the complaint, during the Class Period, TerraVia made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose: that the company’s products caused gastrointestinal distress, such as nausea and vomiting; and as a result, statements about TerraVia’s business, operations, and prospects were false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis at all relevant times. On November 7, 2016, Bloomberg published an article alleging that an algal flour ingredient provided by TerraVia causes consumers to become sick, and that Rosa Foods will be removing the ingredient altogether from its product formulations by early 2017. When this information was released, shares of TerraVia declined in value, causing investors harm.
