The Law Offices of Howard G. Smith Reminds Investors of Looming Deadline in the Class Action Lawsuit Against Celgene Corporation (CELG)

BENSALEM, Pa.--()--Law Offices of Howard G. Smith reminds investors of the May 29, 2018 deadline to file a lead plaintiff motion in the class action filed on behalf of investors that purchased Celgene Corporation (“Celgene” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: CELG) securities between January 12, 2015 and February 27, 2018, inclusive (the “Class Period”). Celgene investors have until May 29, 2018 to file a lead plaintiff motion.

“determined that the nonclinical and clinical pharmacology sections in the NDA were insufficient to permit a complete review.”

Investors suffering losses on their Celgene investments are encouraged to contact the Law Offices of Howard G. Smith to discuss their legal rights in this class action at 888-638-4847 or by email to howardsmith@howardsmithlaw.com.

The complaint filed in this class action alleges that throughout the Class Period, defendants made materially false and misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) the trials for GED-0301 suffered from fatal design defects, such that GED-0301 had failed to demonstrate meaningful clinical efficacy; (2) as a result, there was an undisclosed risk and high likelihood that Celgene would be unable to develop GED-0301 into a commercially viable treatment for Crohn’s disease; (3) the growth of Otezla sales had dramatically slowed during Celgene’s third fiscal quarter of 2017; and (4) the clinical and nonclinical pharmacology data in Celgene’s new drug application (“NDA”) for Ozanimod were insufficient to permit a complete review by the FDA, which resulted in the FDA issuing a refusal to file letter to Celgene regarding the NDA.

On February 27, 2018, Celgene announced that the FDA rejected the Company’s New Drug Application (“NDA”) for Ozanimod, a treatment for multiple sclerosis. Celgene stated that it had received a refusal-to-file letter from the FDA, which advised the Company that the FDA had “determined that the nonclinical and clinical pharmacology sections in the NDA were insufficient to permit a complete review.” On this news, Celgene’s share price fell $8.66, or 9%, on February 28, 2018, thereby injuring investors.

If you purchased shares of Celgene during the Class Period you may move the Court no later than May 29, 2018 to ask the Court to appoint you as lead plaintiff. To be a member of the Class you need not take any action at this time; you may retain counsel of your choice or take no action and remain an absent member of the Class.
