Newman Ferrara LLP Announces Corporate Governance Investigation of Intrexon Corporation - XON

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Newman Ferrara LLP announced today that the firm is conducting an investigation on behalf of shareholders of Intrexon Corporation (“Intrexon” or the “Company”) (XON) focusing on potential breaches of fiduciary duty by the Company’s Board of Directors (the “Board”).

Intrexon, headquartered in Germantown, Maryland, is a biotechnology company focused on synthetic biology and gene-based technologies. Newman Ferrara’s investigation focuses on decisions made by the Board, including material decisions made without shareholder approval, which significantly diminish shareholder value and do not benefit the Company. Considering the Company’s lackluster performance, it appears the Board lacks the ability to fairly assess and oversee the Company’s direction and leadership.

Current Intrexon stockholders seeking more information on this matter are invited to contact Newman Ferrara attorneys Jeffrey Norton (jnorton@nfllp.com) or Ryan Jerome (rjerome@nfllp.com) to discuss this investigation and their rights.

Newman Ferrara maintains a multifaceted practice based in New York City with attorneys specializing in complex commercial and multi-party litigation, securities fraud and shareholder litigation, consumer protection, civil rights, and real estate.
