NEW YORK, April 19, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Attorney Advertising--Bronstein, Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC notifies investors that a class action lawsuit has been filed against Lion Biotechnologies, Inc. ("Lion" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: LBIO) and certain of its officers, on behalf of a class who purchased Lion securities between November 14, 2013 and April 10, 2017, inclusive (the "Class Period"). Such investors are encouraged to join this case by visiting the firm's site: www.bgandg.com/lbio.

The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) Lion, through its former CEO Manish Singh, was engaged in a scheme to mislead investors by commissioning over 10 internet publications and 20 widely distributed emails promoting the Company to potential investors that purported to be independent from the company when, in truth, they were paid promotions; (2) Singh engaged a notorious stock promotion firm to pay writers to publish articles about Lion on investment websites as well as to coordinate the distribution of articles to thousands of electronic mailboxes; (3) Singh actively participated in the promotional work for the Company and understood that the promotion firm was using writers who would not disclose that Lion Biotechnologies was indirectly compensating them for their publications; and (4) consequently, defendants' public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.
