NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / September 18, 2020 / The securities litigation law firm of The Gross Law Firm issues the following notice on behalf of shareholders in the following publicly traded companies. Shareholders who purchased shares in the following companies during the dates listed are encouraged to contact the firm regarding possible Lead Plaintiff appointment. Appointment as Lead Plaintiff is not required to partake in any recovery.
Velocity Financial, Inc. (NYSE:VEL)
This lawsuit is on behalf of investors who purchased VEL stocks pursuant and/or traceable to the Registration Statement and Prospectus, as amended, issued in connection with Velocity’s January 2020 initial public offering.
A class action has commenced on behalf of certain shareholders in Velocity Financial, Inc. According to the filed complaint, defendants failed to disclose that, at the time of Velocity's initial public offering (the "IPO"), the Company’s non-performing loans had dramatically increased in size from the figures provided in the Registration Statement and Prospectus that Velocity had issued in connection with the IPO. Further, defendants failed to provide any information to investors regarding the potential impact of the novel coronavirus on Velocity’s business and operations, despite the fact that the international spread of the virus had already been confirmed at the time of the IPO. The failure to disclose the substantial and growing proportion of the Company’s loans that were non-performing and/or on non-accrual status as of the IPO rendered the statements contained in the Registration Statement and Prospectus regarding the quality of the Company’s loan portfolio and underwriting practices materially misleading.

Vaxart, Inc. (NASDAQ:VXRT)
Investors Affected : June 25, 2020 - July 25, 2020
A class action has commenced on behalf of certain shareholders in Vaxart, Inc. The filed complaint alleges that defendants made materially false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: 1) Vaxart exaggerated the prospects of its COVID-19 vaccine candidate, including its purported role or involvement in Operation Warp Speed ('OWS'), a program which commits the federal government to massive funding for the development of COVID-19 vaccines; 2) Vaxart's COVID-19 vaccine candidate had no reasonable prospect for mass production and marketing and was not among the companies chosen to receive significant financial support from OWS to produce hundreds of millions of vaccine doses; and 3) Vaxart's COVID-19 vaccine candidate was merely selected to participate in preliminary U.S. government studies to determine potential areas for possible OWS partnership and support.

Ultra Petroleum Corp. (OTC PINK:UPLCQ)
Investors Affected : April 3, 2017 - August 8, 2019
A class action has commenced on behalf of certain shareholders in Ultra Petroleum Corp. The filed complaint alleges that defendants made materially false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (a) Ultra’s proved reserves were materially overstated and, therefore, worth hundreds of millions of dollars less than represented; (b) Ultra’s proved undeveloped reserves were of de minimis value because they contained low quality deposits that lacked a commercially viable path to development; (c) Ultra was unable to meet the production and development estimates provided to investors and such estimates lacked a reasonable basis; (d) Ultra was unable to withstand even a modest downturn in the price of natural gas because, inter alia, Ultra’s business had less financial and production flexibility than claimed; and (e) Ultra did not have the technical or financial capabilities or available asset base to sustainably grow its oil and natural gas production by any meaningful amount.
