BALA CYNWYD, PA / ACCESSWIRE / October 11, 2019 / Law office of Brodsky & Smith, LLC announces that it is investigating potential claims against the Board of Directors of Progenics Pharmaceuticals, Inc. ("Progenics" or "the Company") (NASDAQ GS:PGNX) for possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of federal and state law in connection with proposed acquisition of the Company by Lantheus Holdings, Inc. ("Lantheus") (NASDAQ GS:LNTH). Under the terms of the agreement, Progenics shareholders will receive only 0.2502 shares of Lantheus stock for each share of Progenics common stock owned.
The investigation concerns whether the Progenics Board breached its fiduciary duties to shareholders by failing to conduct a fair process and whether Lantheus is underpaying for the Company. The transaction may undervalue the Company and would result in a substantial loss for many Progenics shareholders. For example, as recently as June 2019, the stock was trading at $6.17 a share. Moreover, the reaction to the all-stock deal has been negative - Progenics stock dropped 5.5% in premarket trading on the day after the announcement and Lantheus stock suffered an immediate 18% drop, causing the value of the deal to plummet to approximately $4.72 a share.
