On September 25, 2023, SCYNEXIS reported in a filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission that, following a recent review by the Company’s development, manufacture, and commercialization partner for its ibrexafungerp drug substance of the manufacturing process and equipment at the vendor that manufactures ibrexafungerp, the Company became aware of potential cross contamination of ibrexafungerp with a non-antibacterial beta-lactam drug substance. As SCYNEXIS explained, “[c]urrent FDA guidance recommends segregating the manufacture of beta-lactam compounds from other compounds since beta-lactam compounds have the potential to act as sensitizing agents that may trigger hypersensitivity or an allergic reaction in some people.” The Company therefore declared it would recall BREXAFEMME [the commercial name for ibrexafungerp tablets] from the market and place a temporary hold on clinical studies of ibrexafungerp, including a Phase 3 clinical study, until a mitigation strategy and a resupply plan are determined.

On this news, SCYNEXIS’s stock price fell $1.13 per share, or 34.14%, to close at $2.18 per share on September 25, 2023, on unusually heavy trading volume. SCYNEXIS’s stock price continued to decline the next trading day by 11.47% to close at $1.93 per share on September 26, 2023, on unusually heavy trading volume.
