Argos Therapeutics, Inc. (ARGS)



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

Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities law firm, reminds investors in Argos Therapeutics, Inc. (“Argos” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ:ARGS) of the May 15, 2017 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 Middle District of North Carolina on behalf of all those who purchased Argos securities between February 7, 2014 and February 21, 2017 (the “Class Period”).  The case, Maurer v. Argos Therapeutics Inc. et al, No. 1:17-cv-00216was filed on March 14, 2017.

The lawsuit focuses on whether the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws by making false and/or misleading statements and/or failing to disclose that: (i) the Arcentis technology platform was not viable; (ii) ADAPT was likely to be discontinued, and (iii) as a result, the Company’s financial statements and statements about its business, operations, and prospects were false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.

Specifically, on February 22, 2017, prior to the market opening, Argos filed a Form 8-K with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) announcing that the Independent Data Monitoring Committee for ADAPT recommended that the study be discontinued for futility, finding that the study was unlikely to demonstrate a statistically significant improvement in overall survival.

On this news, Argos’ share price fell from $4.40 per share on  February 21, 2017 to a closing price of $1.48 on February 22, 2017—a $2.92 or a 66.36% drop.
