Before the markets opened on March 1, 2021, Athenex issued a press release entitled “Athenex Receives FDA Complete Response Letter for Oral Paclitaxel Plus Encequidar for the Treatment of Metastatic Breast Cancer.” The release provided that “[i]n the CRL, the FDA indicated its concern of safety risk to patients in terms of an increase in neutropenia-related sequalae in the Oral Paclitaxel arm compared with the IV paclitaxel arm. The release also disclosed that the “[t]he [FDA] stated that the BICR reconciliation and re-read process may have introduced unmeasured bias and influence on the BICR.” Finally, the Company stated that the FDA “recommended that Athenex conduct a new adequate and well-conducted clinical trial in a patient population with metastatic breast cancer representative of the population of the U.S.”

On this news, the price of Athenex’s shares plummeted from their February 26, 2021 closing price of $12.10 per share to a March 1, 2021 close of just $5.46 each. This represents a one-day drop of approximately 55%, representing hundreds of millions of dollars in lost market capitalization.
