The law firm of Lieff Cabraser Heimann & Bernstein, LLP announces that class action litigation has been filed against Bristol-Myers Squibb Company ("Bristol-Myers" or the "Company") on behalf of former shareholders of Celgene Corporation ("Celgene") (Nasdaq: CELG) who received Contingent Value Rights ("CVRs") (NYSE: BMY.RT) in exchange for their shares pursuant to Bristol-Myers's $74 billion acquisition of Celgene on November 20, 2019 ("Merger").

Background on the Bristol-Myers Securities Class Litigation

Bristol-Myers, headquartered in New York City, is one of the world's largest pharmaceutical companies.

The action arises from Bristol-Myers's alleged subversion of the Food and Drug Administration ("FDA") approval process for a cancer therapy known as "Liso-cel" in order to avoid paying $6.4 billion to CVR holders. The CVR payout required FDA approval of three therapies, including Liso-Cel, by specified dates (the "Milestones").

The action alleges that defendants made materially false and misleading statements and omissions of material facts in the Joint Proxy filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission in connection with the Merger. The Joint Proxy stated that upon completion of the Merger, Celgene shareholders would receive CVRs that could be exchanged for payment of $9.00 per share upon completion of certain "Milestones." One of the Milestones was obtaining FDA approval for Liso-cel by December 31, 2020. To avoid paying CVR holders, Bristol-Myers made defective filings to the FDA to ensure delay in the FDA's review, inspection and approval of Liso-cel, which caused it to miss the Liso-cel Milestone. Accordingly, defendants' statements in the Joint Proxy concerning the efforts Bristol-Myers would make to meet the Milestones, the likelihood that the Milestones would be met and the purported value of the CVRs were materially false and misleading when made.
