The filed Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that:
- Lion Biotechnologies, through its former CEO Manish Singh, engaged in a scheme to mislead investors by commissioning over 10 internet publications and 20 widely distributed emails promoting Lion Biotechnologies to potential investors that purported to be independent from the company when, in fact, they were paid promotions;
- former CEO Singh engaged a notorious stock promotion firm to pay writers to publish articles about Lion Biotechnologies on investment websites as well as to coordinate the distribution of articles to thousands of electronic mailboxes;
- former CEO Singh actively participated in the promotional work for Lion Biotechnologies and understood that the promotion firm was using writers who would not disclose that Lion Biotechnologies was indirectly compensating them for their publications; and
- as a result, Defendants’ public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times. When the true details entered the market, the filed lawsuit claims that investors suffered damages.
