According to the Complaint, the Company made false and misleading statements to the market. Vaxart engaged in a fraudulent scheme to artificially inflate its stock price with false information related to the Company’s alleged COVID-19 vaccine. The Company announced via press release that "Vaxart’s COVID-19 Vaccine Selected for the U.S. Government’s Operation Warp Speed," which caused a sharp increase in its share price. The New York Times revealed on July 25, 2020, that "Vaxart is not among the companies selected to receive significant financial support from Warp Speed,” exposing the Company’s scheme and driving its share price lower. Based on these facts, the Company’s public statements were false and materially misleading throughout the class period. When the market learned the truth about Vaxart, investors suffered damages.
