Wolf Popper LLP Announces Investigation on Behalf of Investors in Twist Bioscience Corporation

NEW YORK, November 15, 2022:  Wolf Popper LLP is investigating potential securities fraud claims on behalf of purchasers of Twist Bioscience Corporation (“Twist”) common stock (NASDAQ: TWST).

Twist is a synthetic biology and genomics company that claims to be developing a DNA synthesis platform to industrialize the engineering of biology.

Before the market opened on November 15, 2022, Scorpion Capital published a negative report on Twist entitled “A Cash-Burning Inferno That Is Not a Going Concern, Operating a Ponzi-Like Scheme That Will End In Bankruptcy. Just Another ’Synthetic Biology’ Swindle, This Time With An Absurd ’Silicon DNA Chip’ And Financials So Phony It May Be Criminal. Target Price: $0.” The report alleges Twist is “A ticking time bomb that we believe is resorting to a Worldcom-esque accounting fraud” and “Multiple competitors internally refer to Twist’s price dumping and customer subsidy scheme as a “Ponzi”. In early morning trading on November 15, 2022, Twist’s stock price is down $11.42 per share to $26.59, or a drop of 30.0%.
