Jan 07, 2016, 10:44 ET from Bronstein, Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC

NEW YORK, Jan. 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Attorney Advertising -- Bronstein, Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC is investigating potential claims on behalf of purchasers of the securities of MannKind Corp. ("MannKind" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: MNKD). Such investors are advised to contact Peretz Bronstein or his Investor Relations Analyst, Yael Hurwitz at or 212-697-6484.

This investigation concerns whether MannKind and certain of its officers and/or directors have violated the Federal Securities Laws under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the "Exchange Act"). 

On January 5, 2016, MannKind, a biotech company, announced the termination of their licensing agreement with Sanofi SA (NYSE: SNY) in the U.S. for the development and sale of Afrezza, its inhaled insulin treatment designed to treat diabetes. On that same day, Reuters reported that a Sanofi "spokesman says Afrezza decided to end Afrezza deal with MannKind following low level of prescriptions, despite substantial sales efforts." They added that the product never met even modest expectations and they do not project Afrezza reaching even the lowest patient levels that were anticipated at the time of entering the license and collaboration agreement and that costs are projected to remain very high for a significant period of time. Following this news, on January 5, 2016, MannKind shares fell $0.70, or over 48%, to close at $0.75.

On January 6, 2016, the Los Angeles Times stated, "While the warning and tests might have been a turnoff for some potential users, some doctors and analysts suggested Afrezza's struggles also were the result of a botched roll-out by Sanofi, which reported selling about $5.5 million in the first nine months of last year." On this news, MannKind stock fell $0.02, or 2.53%, to close at $0.73 on January 6, 2016.
