If you purchased or acquired the common stock of Teligent, Inc. during the period from March 7, 2017 in the aftermarket through the close of regular trading on November 6, 2017, you may be eligible to receive a payment from this settlement.

Plaintiff alleges that, between March 7, 2017 and November 6, 2017, Defendants stated that the Company had not received any Form 483 observations from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”).  The Complaint further alleges that this was false and misleading, as in the months before March 2017 the FDA had issued a 483 Letter to Teligent and had related correspondence with Teligent regarding it.  A Form 483 observation informs a company that the FDA observed potential violations of federal regulations and instructs the company to remedy those violations.  As a result of responding to the FDA, and the underlying issues, the Complaint alleges that Teligent’s pipeline of new products, along with its ability to develop new products and win FDA approval for them, were harmed.  In turn, the Complaint alleges that when Teligent announced poor performance at the end of the Class Period, which was the alleged materialization of the risk from the undisclosed 483 correspondence with the FDA, its stock price dropped substantially, injuring investors who purchased or acquired Teligent stock during the Class Period.  This Action alleges that, based on the foregoing circumstances, Defendants violated Section 10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”). 

The Court has not decided for or against Plaintiffs or the Defendants. The parties agreed to attend a mediation session conducted by a third-party neutral mediator, Robert A. Meyer, Esq.  Plaintiff and Defendants submitted and exchanged mediation statements summarizing their respective positions.  The mediation session was held on October 2, 2020.  While the parties did not reach an agreement to settle the Action at the mediation, they continued their negotiations through the Mediator.  On April 5, 2021, the parties engaged in another mediation session, for half of a day.  Again, the parties did not reach an agreement.  However, the parties significantly narrowed the outstanding issues and several weeks later agreed to settle the Action for $6,000,000 in cash.

The Settlement allows Plaintiff and the Defendant to avoid the risks and costs of lengthy litigation and the uncertainty of pre-trial proceedings, a trial, and appeals.  If approved, the Settlement would permit eligible Settlement Class Members, who file timely and valid Proof of Claim and Release Forms, to receive compensation, rather than risk ultimately receiving nothing.  Plaintiff and Plaintiff's Counsel believe the Settlement is in the best interest of all Settlement Class Members.
