Glancy Binkow & Goldberg LLP Announces Class Action Lawsuit Against Incyte Corporation21:00 EDT Friday, April 05, 2013
LOS ANGELES (Business Wire) -- Glancy Binkow & Goldberg LLP announces that a class action lawsuit has been filed in the United States District Court for the District of Delaware on behalf of a class (the “Class”) comprising all purchasers of the common stock of Incyte Corporation (“Incyte” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ:INCY) between April 26, 2012 and August 1, 2012 (the “Class Period”). The Complaint alleges that certain statements issued by Incyte during the Class Period were false and misleading regarding the Company's business and financial prospects.
Incyte, a biopharmaceutical company, focuses on the discovery, development and commercialization of proprietary small molecule drugs for oncology and treatment of inflammation. The Complaint alleges that Incyte issued misleading statements concerning demand for the Company's myelofibrosis drug, Jakafi.
On August 2, 2012, Incyte announced the Company's second quarter 2012 financial results and disclosed that the sales growth of Jakafi had been much softer during the second quarter of 2012 than investors and certain stock analysts had been led to expect. In response to these disclosures, the price of Incyte stock declined 22% from its August 1, 2012 close of $24.92 per share, to close at $19.57 per share on August 2, 2012 on heavy trading volume.
No class has yet been certified in this action. Until a class is certified, you are not represented by counsel unless you retain one. If you purchased Incyte shares during the Class Period, you have certain rights and have until May 6, 2013 to move for lead plaintiff status. To be a member of the class you need not take any action at this time, and you may retain counsel of your choice. If you wish to learn more or have any questions concerning your rights or interests with respect to these matters, please contact Michael Goldberg, Esquire, of Glancy Binkow & Goldberg LLP, 1925 Century Park East, Suite 2100, Los Angeles, California 90067, by telephone at (310) 201-9150, Toll Free at (888) 773-9224, by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit our website at http://www.glancylaw.com.
