NEW YORKThe law firm of Kirby McInerney LLP is investigating potential claims against Verrica Pharmaceuticals Inc. (“Verrica” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: VRCA). The investigation concerns whether Verrica has violated the federal securities laws and/or engaged in other unlawful business practices.

Verrica is a dermatology therapeutics company that develops and commercializes treatments for people with skin diseases in the United States.

On May 24, 2022, after the market closed, Verrica announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) had issued a Complete Response Letter regarding its New Drug Application for molluscum contagiosum treatment, VP-102. Specifically, the FDA cited “deficiencies identified at a general reinspection of Sterling Pharmaceuticals Services, LLC (Sterling), the contract manufacturing organization (CMO) that manufactures Verrica’s bulk solution drug product.” On this news, the price of Verrica shares declined by $3.55 per share, or approximately 63.8%, from $5.56 per share to close at $2.01 per share on May 25, 2022.
