According to the Complaint, the Company made false and misleading statements to the market. Precigen used pure methane in place of natural gas as feedstock for its methanotroph bioconversion platform, producing a high yield. In fact, the yield from natural gas was considerably lower. Pure methane was not a commercially viable feedstock based on its high price compared to natural gas. The Company was under investigation by the SEC since October 2018. 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 Precigen, investors suffered damages.
