July 6, 2018 – Kaplan Fox & Kilsheimer LLP (www.kaplanfox.com) is investigating claims on behalf of investors of PolarityTE, Inc. (“PolarityTE” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: COOL).  Investors who purchased PolarityTE common shares between March 31, 2017 and June 22, 2018 (the “Class Period”) may be affected.

On June 25, 2018, Citron Research released a report accusing PolarityTE of being a “fraud,” and of failing to disclose that its key technology had been rejected by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (the “USPTO”) as early as March 31, 2017 pursuant to a non-final rejection from the USPTO.

On June 25, 2018, following the publication of the Citron Report, the Company’s common shares fell $10.59 per share, or about 27.3%, to close at $28.14 per share. 

A complaint has been filed in the United States District Court, District of Utah against PolarityTE and certain individuals on behalf of investors who purchased or otherwise acquired PolarityTE common shares during the Class Period.  According to the Complaint, throughout the Class Period defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose (1) the status of Patent #14/954,335 at the time it was acquired by PolarityTE on April 7, 2017 and for months afterwards, and (2) the updated status of Patent #14/954,335 after a June 4, 2018 final rejection by the USPTO.

If you are a member of the proposed Class, you may move the court no later than August 27, 2018 to serve as a lead plaintiff for the purported class.  You need not seek to become a lead plaintiff in order to share in any possible recovery.  If you would like to discuss the complaint or our investigation, please contact us by emailing This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
