BENSALEM, Pa.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Law Offices of Howard G. Smith announces an investigation on behalf of Innate Pharma SA (“Innate” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: IPHA) investors concerning the Company’s possible violations of federal securities laws.
On October 23, 2018, Innate and AstraZeneca plc (“AstraZeneca”) announced an expansion of a pre-existing collaboration agreement, whereby AstraZeneca acquired 9.8% equity stake in Innate and obtained full oncology rights to monalizumab, a first-in-class humanized anti-NKG2A antibody. As part of this agreement, Innate would receive $100 million in milestone payments at the start of the first Phase 3 clinical trial for monalizumab.
On September 8, 2020, Innate announced that it had amended its collaboration agreement with AstraZeneca. Innate “will now receive a $50 million payment upon AstraZeneca’s dosing of the first patient in the Phase 3 trial, and a $50 million payment after the interim analysis demonstrates the combination meets a pre-defined threshold of clinical activity.”
On this news, the Company’s American Depositary Share (“ADS”) price fell $1.62 per share, or 26.6%, to close at $4.45 per ADS on September 8, 2020.
