Kahn Swick & Foti, LLC Files Suit Against GTx, Inc.: Remind Investors With Large Financial Interests of Important Deadline - GTXI

NEW ORLEANS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Kahn Swick & Foti, LLC (“KSF”) and KSF partner, Former Louisiana Attorney General, Charles C. Foti, Jr., have commenced a securities class action lawsuit against GTx, Inc. (GTXI). KSF filed suit in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York (Case No. 1:19-cv-04103-UA) for shareholders of GTx who held shares on the record date April 15, 2019 (“Class Period”) and were harmed by GTx and its Board for alleged violations of Sections 14(a) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 in connection with the merger of the Company with Oncternal Therapeutics, Inc.

About the Lawsuit

On March 7, 2019, the Company announced a merger agreement, subsequently amended April 30, 2019 (the “Merger Agreement”), whereby a wholly-owned GTx subsidiary will merge with Oncternal, with Oncternal surviving as a wholly-owned GTx subsidiary, and with each common Oncternal share converted into the right to receive approximately 0.5137 shares of GTx’s common stock.

The complaint alleges that the S-4 Registration Statement filed in connection with the merger provides materially incomplete and misleading information about GTX’s financials and the transaction, violating Sections 14(a) and 20(a) of the Exchange Act, concerning: (a) GTx and Oncternal financial projections; (b) the Proposed Transaction process; and (c) potential Board member conflicts of interest.
