Tokai Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (TKAI)



Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP Encourages Investors Who Suffered Losses In Excess Of $100,000 Investing In Tokai Pharmaceuticals, Inc. To Contact The Firm Before Lead Plaintiff Deadline

Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities law firm, reminds investors in Tokai Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (“Tokai” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: TKAI) of the September 30, 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 Tokai stock or options between June 24, 2015 and July 25, 2016 (the “Class Period”).  The case, Doshi v. Tokai Pharmaceuticals, Inc. et al, No. 1:16-cv-06106 was filed on August 1, 2016, and has been assigned to Judge Lorna G. Schofield.

The lawsuit focuses on whether the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws by failing to disclose there were significant structural problems with the trial design for Tokai Pharmaceuticals’ pivotal Phase 3 galeterone study, ARMOR3-SV.

Specifically, on November 2, 2015, Richard Pearson published an article on the investment website Seeking Alpha, entitled “What’s Wrong With Tokai Pharmaceuticals?” (the “Pearson Report”).  The Pearson Report described structural problems with the design of the Company’s ARMOR3-SV trial.  Then on July 26, 2016, Tokai announced plans “to discontinue the ARMOR3-SV clinical trial, our pivotal Phase 3 study” of galeterone stating that ARMOR3-SV was unlikely to succeed in meeting its primary endpoint.

On this news, Tokai’s share price fell from $5.20 per share on July 25, 2016 to a closing price of $1.10 on July 26, 2016 —a $4.10 or a 78.85% drop.

Finally, after market hours on July 29, 2016, Tokai issued a press release announcing that it would reduce its workforce by approximately 60 percent by the end of the third quarter of 2016.

On this news, Tokai’s share price fell from $1.26 per share on July 29, 2016 to a closing price of $1.13 on August 1, 2016 —a $0.13 or a 10.32% drop.
