WeissLaw is investigating whether Alder's Board acted to maximize shareholder value prior to entering into the acquisition agreement.  Notably, the Company's highly anticipated drug, Epitnezumab, a treatment for migraines, is scheduled for FDA approval in February of 2020.  If approved, it will be the first-to-market therapy of its kind with a lead and significant advantages over similar treatments in development.

Given these facts, WeissLaw is concerned whether the proposed acquisition undervalues the Company, and whether all material information related to the proposed acquisition is fully and fairly disclosed. 

WeissLaw LLP has litigated hundreds of stockholder class and derivative actions for violations of corporate and fiduciary duties.  We have recovered over a billion dollars for defrauded clients and obtained important corporate governance relief in many of these cases.  If you have information or would like legal advice concerning possible corporate wrongdoing (including insider trading, waste of corporate assets, accounting fraud, or materially misleading information), consumer fraud (including false advertising, defective products, or other deceptive business practices), or anti-trust violations, please email us at stockinfo@weisslawllp.com
