NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / January 20, 2020 / The following statement is being issued by Levi & Korsinsky, LLP:

To: All Persons or Entities who purchased Neon Therapeutics, Inc. ("Neon" or the "Company") (NTGN) stock prior to January 16, 2020.

You are hereby notified that Levi & Korsinsky, LLP has commenced an investigation into the fairness of the sale of Neon to BioNTech SE ("BioNTech") (BNTX). Following consummation of the acquisition, Neon will merge with Endor Lights, Inc., a direct, wholly-owned subsidiary of BioNTech, and become a wholly-owned subsidiary of BioNTech. At closing, BioNTech will issue, and Neon shareholders will receive 0.063 American Depositary Shares (ADS) (each ADS representing one ordinary share of BioNTech) in exchange for each of their shares of Neon.
