NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Newman Ferrara LLP announced today that the firm is conducting an investigation on behalf of shareholders of Ophthotech Corp. (“Ophthotech” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ:OPHT) into potential breaches of fiduciary duty by the Company’s Board of Directors (the “Board”).
Ophthotech, headquartered in New York City, NY, is a biopharmaceutical company engaged in the development of therapeutics to treat ophthalmic diseases. Newman Ferrara’s investigation focuses on decisions made by the Board, without shareholder approval, the result of which significantly diminish shareholder value and do not benefit the Company. Considering the Company’s lackluster performance since its 2013 initial public offering, it is clear that the Board lacks the ability to fairly assess and oversee the Company’s direction and leadership.
Current Ophthotech stockholders seeking more information on this matter are invited to contact Newman Ferrara attorneys Jeffrey Norton (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Roger Sachar, Jr. (email@example.com) to discuss this investigation and their rights.
