WASHINGTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Cohen Milstein Sellers & Toll PLLC is conducting an investigation to determine whether Kitov Pharmaceuticals Holdings Ltd. (“Kitov” or the “Company”) and certain of its officers and directors made false and misleading statements and/or omissions in violation of Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 or committed violations of Sections 11, 12 and 15 of the Securities Act of 1933.
A class action lawsuit was filed in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York by another law firm on behalf of purchasers of the American Depositary Receipts (“ADRs”) of Kitov Pharmaceuticals Holdings Ltd. (NASDAQ: KTOV) between November 20, 2015 and February 3, 2017, inclusive (the “Class Period”), including those who purchased shares pursuant or traceable to the Company’s November 20, 2015 initial public offering.
Kitov’s lead drug candidate is KIT-302, a fixed dosage combination product based on the generic drugs celecoxib and amlodipine besylate that has completed its Phase III clinical study. The complaint alleges that Kitov and certain of its officers and directors misrepresented and/or failed to disclose that: (1) Kitov and its CEO published misleading information concerning the conduct of the Company’s clinical trials for KIT-302; and (2) as a result of the foregoing, Kitov’s public statements were materially false and misleading.
According to the complaint, on Monday, February 6, 2017, the Israeli publication Calcalist reported that the Company’s CEO had been detained and questioned by the Israeli Securities Authority (“ISA”) on suspicion of publishing misleading information in connection with a clinical trial of KIT-302. Later that morning, Kitov issued a press release disclosing the ISA investigation. The price of Kitov ADRs fell from $2.88 to $2.55 on February 6, and closed at $2.15 when trading resumed on February 9 after a two-day halt.
Cohen Milstein encourages all investors who purchased Kitov ADRs pursuant or traceable to the November 20, 2015 IPO, and/or between November 20, 2015 and February 3, 2017; or former employees with information concerning this matter to contact the firm.
