WILMINGTON, Del., April 27, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Rigrodsky & Long, P.A. announces that it has filed a class action complaint in the United States District Court for the District of Delaware on behalf of holders of Neon Therapeutics, Inc. (“Neon” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ GS: NTGN) common stock in connection with the proposed acquisition of Neon by BioNTech SE (“BioNTech”) and Endor Lights, Inc. (“Merger Sub”), announced on January 16, 2020 (the “Complaint”). The Complaint, which alleges violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 against Neon, its Board of Directors (the “Board”), BioNTech, and Merger Sub, is captioned Franchi v. Neon Therapeutics, Inc., Case No. 1:20-cv-00482 (D. Del.).

Pursuant to the terms of the Merger Agreement, shareholders of Neon will receive 0.063 American Depository Shares for each share of Neon common stock they own (the “Proposed Transaction”).

Among other things, the Complaint alleges that, in an attempt to secure shareholder support for the Proposed Transaction, defendants issued materially incomplete disclosures in a proxy statement/prospectus (the “Prospectus”) filed with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission. The Complaint alleges that the Prospectus omits material information with respect to, among other things, the Company’s and BioNTech’s financial projections and the analyses performed by Neon’s financial advisor. The Complaint seeks injunctive and equitable relief and damages on behalf of holders of Neon common stock.
