According to the complaint, on September 5, 2017, Synergy announced it had closed on a "non-dilutive" $300 million loan from CRG Partners III L.P., which would be available to Synergy "when needed" to fund its operations through 2019. The lawsuit further claims that on November 14, 2017, Synergy revealed that the loan agreement terms, which were not previously disclosed, prevented Synergy from accessing $200 million of the loan without conducting a dilutive secondary offering or offerings of shares to raise cash, and thus, Synergy was conducting a secondary offering of its shares.
