On September 7, 2018, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) issued a press release entitled “SEC Charges Microcap Fraudsters for Roles in Lucrative Market Manipulation Schemes”.  The press release stated, in part, that the SEC had “charged a group of 10 individuals and 10 associated entities for their participation in long-running fraudulent schemes that generated over $27 million from unlawful stock sales and caused significant harm to retail investors who were left holding virtually worthless stock.”  The press release named three controlling shareholders of Cocrystal’s corporate predecessor BioZone—Barry C. Honig, Michael Brauser, and Phillip Frost—as defendants. 

Following this announcement, Cocrystal’s stock price fell $0.58 per share, or over 15.5%, over the next two trading sessions to close at $3.16 on September 11, 2018.
