Welcome to the Regulus Securities Litigation Settlement Website.
The information contained on this web page is only a summary of information presented in more detail in the Notice of Pendency and Proposed Settlement of Class Action (the “Notice”). Because this website is just a summary, you should review the Notice for additional details.
Plaintiffs Have Reached a Proposed Settlement, Subject to Court Approval
The Court-appointed Lead Plaintiffs, on behalf of themselves and the Settlement Class, have reached a proposed settlement of this action, captioned In Re Regulus Therapeutics Inc. Securities Litigation, No. 17-cv-00182-BTM-RBB (S.D. Cal.) (the “Action”), for a cash payment of $900,000 (the “Settlement”). The Settlement, if approved by the Court, will resolve all claims in this Action.
Your Rights in the Proposed Settlement
If you are a member of the Settlement Class, your rights will be affected and you may be eligible for a payment from the proceeds of the Settlement, if it receives final Court approval. The Settlement Class certified by the Court includes all persons or entities who purchased or otherwise acquired Regulus common stock between February 17, 2016 and June 11, 2017, inclusive, except those persons or entities that are excluded, as described below.
You are not a Settlement Class Member if you are: (i) Defendants; (ii) members of the immediate families of Defendants; (iii) any person who is or was an officer or director of Regulus during or after the Class Period; (iv) any entity in which any of the Defendants had or has a controlling interest; and (v) any legal representatives, agents, affiliates, heirs, beneficiaries, successors-in-interest, or assigns of any such excluded party in their capacity as such. Also excluded from the Settlement Class is any person or entity who validly requests exclusion pursuant to the requirements set forth in this Notice.
Please read the Notice to fully understand your rights and options. Copies of the Notice and Claim Form can be found in the menu at the top of this page.
If you are a member of the Settlement Class, in order to be potentially eligible to receive a payment from the Settlement, you must submit a Claim Form postmarked no later than September 14, 2020.
Payments to eligible claimants will be made only after the Settlement and a Plan of Allocation are approved by the Court and any appeals are resolved, and after the completion of all claims processing. Please be patient, as this process will take some time to complete.
