NEW YORK, Aug. 2, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Attorney Advertising -- Bronstein, Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC, notifies investors of class action against of Tokai Pharmaceuticals, Inc. ("Tokai" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: TKAI). The class is on behalf of a class consisting of all persons or entities who purchased Tokai from June 24, 2015 through July 25, 2016, inclusive (the "Class Period").
This class action seeks to recover damages against Defendants for alleged violations of the federal securities laws under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the "Exchange Act").
Tokai Pharmaceuticals is a company focused on developing and commercializing therapies for prostate cancer and other hormonally-driven diseases. Galeterone, Tokai's lead drug candidate, is an oral small molecule that was used in various clinical trials for the treatment of patients with metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer.
The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and misleading statements regarding Tokai's business, operational and compliance policies. Particularly, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) there were noteworthy structural problems with ARMOR3-SV, the trial design for Tokai's pivotal Phase 3 Galeterone study, (2) accordingly, ARMOR3-SV would probably not meet its primary endpoint; (3) therefore, the likelihood of Galeterone's commercialization was not as probable as Tokai had told investors; and (4) consequently, Tokai's financial statements, and Defendants' statements regarding Tokai's business, operations, and prospects, were false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.
On November 2, 2015, Seeking Alpha published a report by Richard Pearson, "What's Wrong With Tokai Pharmaceuticals?". The article described structural problems with the design of the Company's ARMOR3-SV trial. Following this news, Tokai stock dropped $0.07 per share, or 0.63%, to close at $10.98 on November 2, 2015.
Then, on July 26, 2016, Tokai said it would "discontinue the ARMOR3-SV clinical trial, our pivotal Phase 3 study" of Galeterone. Directly following this news, Tokai stock dropped $4.10 per share, or roughly 79%, to close at $1.10 on July 26, 2016.
