BioCryst Pharmaceuticals, Inc. ("BCRX") designs, optimizes and develops novel small molecule drugs that block key enzymes involved in the pathogenesis of diseases.
According to the Complaint, on January 21, 2018, the merger agreement and the voting and support agreements were executed by Idera Pharmaceuticals, Inc. ("IDRA") and BCRX. The transaction was announced by joint press release on the morning of January 22, 2018.
On February 27, 2018, Defendants filed a Form S-4 Registration Statement (the “Registration Statement”) with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission in connection with the Proposed Mergers.

About the Company & Securities Data
"Company" information provides the industry and sector classification and headquarters state for the primary company-defendant in the litigation. In general, "Securities" information provides the ticker symbol, market, and market status for the underlying securities at issue in the litigation.
In most cases, the primary company-defendant actually issued the securities that are the subject of the litigation, and the securities information and company information relate to the same entity. In a small subset of cases, however, the primary company-defendant is not the issuer (for example, cases against third party brokers/dealers), and the securities information and company information do not relate to the same entity.
