NEW YORK, June 03, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Pomerantz LLP is investigating claims on behalf of investors of Sorrento Therapeutics, Inc. (“Sorrento” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: SRNE). Such investors are advised to contact Robert S. Willoughby at email@example.com or 888-476-6529, ext. 7980.
The investigation concerns whether Sorrento and certain of its officers and/or directors have engaged in securities fraud or other unlawful business practices.
On May 15, 2020, Sorrento announced discovery of the STI-1499 antibody, which the Company described as providing “100% inhibition” of COVID-19. Then, on May 18, 2020, Vital Knowledge Media expressed skepticism over Sorrento’s announcement, describing the Company’s statements as “very disingenuous” and stating that “some of the narratives around drugs and vaccines” needed to be tempered. On this news, Sorrento’s stock price fell $0.26 per share, or 3.85%, to close at $6.50 per share on May 18, 2020. Then, on May 20, 2020, Hindenburg Research published a report asserting that Sorrento faced significant solvency concerns ahead of its announcement regarding the STI-1499 antibody, citing statements by former employees, and asserting that “Sorrento’s actions are manipulative at the worst possible time and simply amount to an attempt to shamelessly profiteer off the pandemic.”
