On February 28, 2022, Lexicon issued a press release “announc[ing] the voluntary withdrawal and planned near-term resubmission of the company’s New Drug Application (NDA) for sotagliflozin to correct a technical issue with the submission recently identified by the company.”  Lexicon reported that “[t]he company promptly notified the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) about the issue and has been in discussions with the agency to correct the submission” but that “[d]ue to the proximity to the conclusion of the 60-day filing review period, Lexicon determined, after consultation with the FDA, that the withdrawal of the NDA and a subsequent resubmission would be the most appropriate action to provide a complete submission for review.” 

On this news, Lexicon’s stock price fell $0.78 per share, or 27.37%, to close at $2.07 per share on February 28, 2022.
