Galena disclosed plans to “divest its commercial business,” which included the Company’s innovative cancer pain drug, Abstral.
On March 10, 2016, the Company revealed that “[a] federal investigation of two of the high-prescribing physicians for Abstral has resulted in the criminal prosecution of the two physicians for alleged violations of the federal False Claims Act and other federal statutes,” and that the Company was issued a trial subpoena for documents in regards to that investigation. The Company also noted that “other governmental agencies may be investigating our Abstral promotion practices,” and that “on December 16, 2015, we received a subpoena issued by the U.S. Attorney’s Office in District of New Jersey requesting the production of a broad range of documents pertaining to our marketing and promotional practices for Abstral.”
On January 31, 2017, Galena revealed that Mark W. Schwartz, President and Chief Executive Officer during this time, was resigning from his position.
When this information was revealed to the investing public, the value of Galena fell significantly, causing investors harm.
