The lawsuit alleges that between February 14, 2020 and March 9, 2020 the defendants capitalized on extreme COVID-19 panic by falsely claiming that Inovio Pharmaceuticals, Inc. had developed a vaccine for COVID-19. The lawsuit also alleges that Inovio Pharmaceuticals CEO J. Joseph Kim appeared on Fox Business News and stated Inovio had developed a COVID-19 vaccine. After J. Joseph Kim's statement, the market responded favorably and Inovio's stock price quadrupled from $4.28 a share on February 28, 2020, and continued to rise in subsequent weeks, reaching an intra-day high of $19.36 on March 9, 2020. It is alleged that Inovio had not developed a COVID-19 vaccine. The lawsuit states that on March 9, 2020, before trading commenced, Citron Research exposed the misstatements, calling for an SEC investigation into the matter. In response, Inovio's stock price fell dramatically from its March 9 opening price of $18.72 per share to close to $9.83. The following day, March 10, 2020, Inovio's stock price fell from its $9.30 per share opening price to close at $5.70 per share.
