September 11, 2021 GMT

NEW YORK, Sept. 10, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Gainey McKenna & Egleston announces that a class action lawsuit has been filed against Zymergen, Inc. (“Zymergen” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: ZY) in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California on behalf of those who purchased or otherwise acquired Zymergen publicly traded securities pursuant and/or traceable to the documents issued in connection with Zymergen’s April 2021 initial public offering (the “IPO” or “Offering”).

As alleged in the Complaint, the Registration Statement featured false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (i) during the qualification process for the Company’s optical firm product, Hyaline, key customers had encountered technical issues, including product shrinkage and incompatibility with customers’ processes; (ii) though the qualification process was critical to achieving market acceptance for Hyaline and generating revenue, Zymergen lacked visibility into the qualification process; (iii) as a result, the Company overestimated demand for its products; (iv) as a result of the foregoing, the Company’s product delivery timeline was reasonably likely to be delayed, which in turn would delay revenue generation; and (v) as a result of the foregoing, Defendants’ positive statements about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects, were materially misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.
