NEW YORK, May 27, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- WeissLaw LLP is investigating possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of law by the board of directors of Progenics Pharmaceuticals, Inc. ("Progenics" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: PGNX) in connection with the proposed acquisition of the company by Lantheus Holdings, Inc. ("LNTH") (NASDAQ: LNTH). Under the terms of the acquisition agreement, PGNX shareholders will receive 0.31 shares of LNTH for each PGNX share they own, representing implied per-share merger consideration of only $3.96 based on LNTH's May 26, 2020 closing price of $12.77.

WeissLaw is investigating whether Progenics' board of directors acted to maximize shareholder value prior to entering into the acquisition agreement. Notably, at least one analyst set a price target of $7.00 per PGNX share, or $3.04 above the implied per-share merger consideration.
Additionally, the Company recently reported positive financial results for the first quarter of 2020. Progenics announced revenue of $6.25 million, representing a remarkable growth of 46% year-over-year when compared to revenue of $4.28 million reported in the same period in the prior year. Finally, at close of the transaction PGNX shareholders will be in a minority position, owning only 40% of the combined company.
Given these facts, WeissLaw is concerned whether the proposed acquisition undervalues the Company, and whether all material information related to the proposed acquisition is fully and fairly disclosed.
