—On or around 12/29/2023 (Date of order of final judgment)
Current/Last Presiding Judge:  
Hon. Jed S. Rakoff

Filing Date: September 13, 2023

This action stems from a proposed transaction announced on October 23, 2020, pursuant to which Sumitovant Biopharma Ltd. agreed to acquire all of the outstanding common shares of Myovant Sciences, Ltd. that Sumitovant did not already own for $27.00 per share in cash via a merger transaction.

Myovant is a biopharmaceutical company that has developed and commercialized drugs to treat prostate cancer in men, and uterine fibroids and endometriosis in women.

On January 23, 2023, Defendants filed a proxy statement with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission in connection with the Proposed Transaction. The Complaint alleges that the Proxy Statement omitted material information with respect to the Proposed Transaction, rendering the Proxy Statement false and misleading. This action seeks damages from Defendants arising from their allegedly false statements in the Proxy.

Myovant shareholders voted in favor of the Merger on March 1, 2023, and on March 10, Sumitovant announced the successful completion of the acquisition.

On October 10, 2023, the Court issued an Order appointing Lead Plaintiff and Counsel. Lead Plaintiff filed an amended Complaint on October 17. Defendants filed a Motion to Dismiss the amended Complaint on October 31.

On December 28, 2023, the Court issued an Order granting Defendants' Motion to Dismiss. The case was dismissed with prejudice.

Lead Plaintiff filed a notice appealing the Court's Dismissal Order on January 24, 2024.
