On May 26, 2021, Ocugen stated its plan to submit an Emergency Use Authorization (“EUA”) application for COVAXIN™, a COVID-19 vaccine, to the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (“FDA”) in June 2021. Then, on June 10, 2021, the Company issued a press release announcing that it “will no longer pursue an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) for COVAXIN™” but would instead “pursue submission of a biologics license application (BLA) for its COVID-19 vaccine candidate, COVAXIN™.” The Company’s Chairman of the Board, Chief Executive Officer, and co-founder further disclosed that “[a]lthough we were close to finalizing our EUA application for submission, we received a recommendation from the FDA to pursue a BLA path[,]” and that “this will extend our timelines[.]”
On this news, Ocugen’s stock price fell $2.62 per share, or 28.14%, to close at $6.69 per share on June 10, 2021.
