The investigation by a law firm concerns whether certain officers and directors of Progenics Pharmaceuticals, Inc. breached their fiduciary duties owed to NASDAQ: PGNX investors in connection with the proposed acquisition.

Progenics Pharmaceuticals, Inc. reported that its annual Total Revenue rose from $11.69 million in 2017 to $15.62 million in 2018.

On October 2, 2019 -- Lantheus Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: LNTH), parent company of Lantheus Medical Imaging, Inc. and Progenics Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ: PGNX) announced an agreement for Lantheus to acquire Progenics in an all-stock transaction. Under the terms of the agreement, Lantheus Holdings will acquire all of the issued and outstanding common shares of Progenics Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ: PGNX) stock at a fixed exchange ratio. Progenics shareholders will receive 0.2502 shares of Lantheus Holdings stock for each share of Progenics stock.
