A biopharmaceutical business called Alnylam Pharmaceuticals Inc. (Alnylam) finds, creates, and sells medications based on RNAi interference. Onpattro, Givlaari, and Oxlumo are three of the company’s marketed RNAi therapeutics that are used to treat the polyneuropathy of hereditary transthyretin-mediated amyloidosis (hATTR amyloidosis), acute hepatic porphyria, and primary hyperoxaluria type 1. (PH1). The business creates a wide range of investigational RNAi medications for use in treating disorders of the central nervous system (CNS), liver infections, cardiometabolic conditions, and genetics. Vutrisiran for ATTR amyloidosis, Inclisiran for hypercholesterolemia, Fitusiran for hemophilia and uncommon bleeding diseases, and Lumasiran for severe PH1 are some of its late-stage pharmaceutical candidates. North America, Europe, and Asia-Pacific are all regions where the corporation has subsidiaries. The US city of Cambridge, Massachusetts, is home to Alnylam’s headquarters.
Alnylam Pharmaceuticals, Inc. case number 18-CV-8845, et al. The complaint, as further amended, claims that we violated certain federal securities laws, specifically those outlined in Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the Exchange Act and Rule 10b-5 issued thereunder, along with our chief executive officer, chief financial officer, and a few other executive officers. On behalf of a fictitious class of buyers of our common shares between September 20, 2017 and September 12, 2018, the plaintiff asks for unspecified damages. We intend to strongly fight the litigation because we think the claims made in the complaint are unfounded. Regardless of whether the plaintiff’s claims are successful, this form of action is frequently expensive and diverts management’s resources, which could negatively impact the operation of our business.
Alnylam Pharmaceuticals, Inc. assumed a note payable and accrued interest of $4,795 to a Ribopharma shareholder upon the acquisition of Ribopharma AG and an obligation to deliver common shares in accordance with prior terms of the note valued at $119; both obligations were included in assumed liabilities at the time of the acquisition. 1,917,857 shares of Series B preferred stock were obtained in return for the $4,538 note payable and the $257 in interest that had accumulated. Furthermore, 94,044 shares of Alnylam Pharmaceuticals, Inc. ordinary stock were issued to fulfill the share obligation. As of December 31, 2003, there were no monies due under this note payable.
We believe that the accompanying consolidated balance sheets and related consolidated statements of operations, changes in redeemable convertible preferred stock, stockholders’ deficit, and cash flows fairly represent the financial position of Alnylam Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (a development stage enterprise) at December 31, 2003 and 2002, as well as the results of its operations and its cash flows for the year ended December 31, 2003 and for the year ended December 31, 2002, in all material respects.
