Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP Encourages Investors Who Suffered Losses In Excess Of $100,000 Investing In NewLink Genetics Corporation To Contact The Firm Before Lead Plaintiff Deadline
Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities law firm, reminds investors in NewLink Genetics Corporation (“NewLink” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ:NLNK) of the July 11, 2016 deadline to seek the role of lead plaintiff in a federal securities class action lawsuit filed against the Company and certain officers.
The lawsuit has been filed in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York on behalf of all those who purchased or otherwise acquired NewLink securities between September 17, 2013 and May 9, 2016 (the “Class Period”). The case, Abramson v. NewLink Genetics Corporation et al, No. 1:16-cv-03545 was filed on May 12, 2016, and has been assigned to Judge William H. Pauley III.
The lawsuit focuses on whether the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws by making false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (i) algenpantucel-L, a pancreatic cancer treatment, was ineffective and potentially dangerous to patients; and (ii) as a result, NewLink’s public statements were materially false and misleading.
Specifically, on May 9, 2016, after market close, NewLink announced that algenpantucel-L did not meet the main goal in the Company’s Phase 3 IMPRESS study. Patients treated with algenpantucel-L lived for a median of 27.3 months in NewLink's Phase 3 trial, compared to median survival of 30.4 months for patients treated with standard therapy, indicating that patients were actually harmed by NewLink's treatment.
On this news, NewLink’s share price fell from $16.50 per share on May 9, 2016 to a closing price of $11.45 on May 10, 2016 —a $5.05 or a ~30.61% drop.
