CASE ALLEGATIONS: Shattuck Labs purports to be a clinical-stage biotechnology company pioneering the development of bi-functional fusion proteins as a new class of biologic medicine for the treatment of cancer and autoimmune disease. On or about October 9, 2020, Shattuck Labs held the IPO, issuing approximately 13.6 million shares to the investing public at $17.00 per share, pursuant to the Registration Statement. In doing so, the Registration Statement emphasized the importance of Shattuck Labs’ August 8, 2017 collaboration agreement (the “Collaboration Agreement”) with Millennium Pharmaceuticals, Inc., or Takeda, a wholly owned subsidiary of Takeda Pharmaceutical Company, Ltd.
The Shattuck Labs class action lawsuit alleges that the IPO’s Registration Statement was negligently prepared and, as a result, contained untrue statements of material facts or omitted to state other facts necessary to make the statements made not misleading, and was not prepared in accordance with the rules and regulations governing its preparation. Specifically, the Registration Statement and defendants failed to disclose that: (i) the Collaboration Agreement with Takeda was not solid; (ii) Takeda and Shattuck Labs would “mutually agree” to terminate the Collaboration Agreement in essentially one year; (iii) as a result, Shattuck Labs would cease to receive any future milestone, royalty, or other payments from Takeda; and (iv) as a result, defendants’ statements about Shattuck Labs’ business, operations, and prospects were materially false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis at all relevant times.
On November 9, 2021, Shattuck Labs issued a press release entitled “Shattuck Labs Reports Third Quarter 2021 Financial Results and Recent Business Highlights” which announced the termination of the Collaboration Agreement. On this news, Shattuck Labs’ share price fell approximately 28%, damaging investors.
On the day the Shattuck Labs class action lawsuit was commenced, the price of Shattuck Labs shares closed at $6.91 per share, a nearly 60% decline from the $17.00 per share IPO price.
THE LEAD PLAINTIFF PROCESS: The Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 permits purchasers of Shattuck Labs securities (1) pursuant and/or traceable to the Registration Statement issued in connection with the IPO and/or (2) during the Class Period to seek appointment as lead plaintiff in the Shattuck Labs class action lawsuit. A lead plaintiff is generally the movant with the greatest financial interest in the relief sought by the putative class who is also typical and adequate of the putative class. A lead plaintiff acts on behalf of all other class members in directing the Shattuck Labs class action lawsuit. The lead plaintiff can select a law firm of its choice to litigate the Shattuck Labs class action lawsuit. An investor’s ability to share in any potential future recovery of the Shattuck Labs class action lawsuit is not dependent upon serving as lead plaintiff.
