NEW YORK, Feb. 6, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Pomerantz LLP is investigating claims on behalf of investors of Aratana Therapeutics, Inc. ("Aratana" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: PETX). Such investors are advised to contact Robert S. Willoughby at email@example.com or 888-476-6529, ext. 9980.
The investigation concerns whether Aratana and certain of its officers and/or directors have engaged in securities fraud or other unlawful business practices.
On February 6, 2017, Aratana disclosed that the Center for Veterinary Medicine ("CVM") had requested more information about the Company's appetite stimulation drug ENTYCE. Aratana advised investors that it "now anticipates that ENTYCE . . . will be commercially available by late 2017" and that the CVM's request was "in connection with the Company's post-approval supplement request to transfer the manufacturing of ENTYCE to a new vendor in order to produce ENTYCE at a commercial scale."
On this news, Aratana stock has fallen as much as $1.53, or 19.05%, to a low of $6.50 during intraday trading on February 6, 2017.
