CDMO LOSS ALERT: ROSEN, A LEADING LAW FIRM, Encourages Avid Bioservices, Inc. Investors to Inquire About Securities Class Action Investigation – CDMO

WHY: Rosen Law Firm, a global investor rights law firm, announces an investigation of potential securities claims on behalf of shareholders of Avid Bioservices, Inc. (NASDAQ: CDMO) resulting from allegations that Avid Bioservices may have issued materially misleading business information to the investing public.

SO WHAT: If you purchased Avid Bioservices securities you may be entitled to compensation without payment of any out of pocket fees or costs through a contingency fee arrangement. The Rosen Law Firm is preparing a class action seeking recovery of investor losses.

WHAT TO DO NEXT: To join the prospective class action, go to or call Phillip Kim, Esq. toll-free at 866-767-3653 or email for information on the class action.

WHAT IS THIS ABOUT: On March 6, 2024, after market hours, Avid Bioservices filed a current report on Form 8-K with the SEC, in which it stated that it had “received an acceleration notice (the “Acceleration Notice”) from a holder of its 1.250% Exchangeable Senior Notes due 2026 (the “2026 Notes”). The Acceleration Notice stipulates, among other things, that (i) the Company did not remove the restrictive legend on the 2026 Notes by March 17, 2022 as required under the indenture governing the 2026 Notes (the “2026 Notes Indenture”), (ii) due to such failure, additional interest has accrued thereafter at a rate of 0.50% per annum (the “Additional Interest”), (iii) such Additional Interest has not been paid by the Company as of the date of the Acceleration Notice, which constitutes an event of default under the 2026 Notes Indenture (the “Event of Default”), and (iv) such holder is the beneficial owner of at least 25% in aggregate principal amount of the outstanding 2026 Notes and therefore has the right to accelerate all of the 2026 Notes.”

Further, “[a]s a result of such interest payment default and pursuant to the terms of the 2026 Notes Indenture, such holder declared 100% of the principal of, and accrued and unpaid interest on, the 2026 Notes to be due and payable immediately (the “Acceleration Event”). The accelerated amount, inclusive of principal and interest due and payable, as of February 29, 2024, the date of acceleration, was approximately $146.0 million and accrues interest at 2.75% per annum until paid in full.”

As a result, Avid Bioservices announced that “the Company may not be able to timely file its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the fiscal quarter ended January 31, 2024, particularly in the event the Company determines that some or all of the financial statements included in the Relevant Reports must be restated.”

On this news, the price of Avid Bioservices stock fell by over 28% in intraday trading on March 7, 2024.

WHY ROSEN LAW: We encourage investors to select qualified counsel with a track record of success in leadership roles. Often, firms issuing notices do not have comparable experience, resources, or any meaningful peer recognition. Many of these firms do not actually litigate securities class actions. Be wise in selecting counsel. The Rosen Law Firm represents investors throughout the globe, concentrating its practice in securities class actions and shareholder derivative litigation. Rosen Law Firm has achieved the largest ever securities class action settlement against a Chinese Company. Rosen Law Firm was Ranked No. 1 by ISS Securities Class Action Services for number of securities class action settlements in 2017. The firm has been ranked in the top 4 each year since 2013 and has recovered hundreds of millions of dollars for investors. In 2019 alone the firm secured over $438 million for investors. In 2020, founding partner Laurence Rosen was named by law360 as a Titan of Plaintiffs’ Bar. Many of the firm’s attorneys have been recognized by Lawdragon and Super Lawyers.
