NanoViricides (NNVC), a biotech company that has raised $42 million through PIPE and registered equity private placements in the last 12 months, including a $20 million registered direct offering managed by Midtown Partners and Chardan Capital Markets in late January, experienced a hit of up to 28% in its stock on Tuesday, Feb. 11, after an anonymous short seller published a research note questioning how company assets are being spent by executives.
