BALA CYNWYD, PA / ACCESSWIRE / August 26, 2020 / Law Office of Brodsky & Smith, LLC announces that it is investigating potential claims against the Board of Directors of Proteostasis Therapeutics, Inc. ("PTI" or the "Company") (NASDAQ:PTI) for possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of federal and state law in connection with the agreement to merge with privately-held Yumanity Therapeutics, Inc. ("Yumanity"), in a stock-for-stock reverse merger where PTI will acquire all outstanding shares of Yumanity in exchange for newly-issued shares of PTI common stock. As structured presently, PTI shareholders will own only 32.5% of the new combined company.
