Rosen Law Firm, a global investor rights law firm, announces it is investigating potential securities claims on behalf of shareholders of MannKind Corp. (NASDAQ:MNKD) resulting from allegations that MannKind may have issued materially misleading business information to the investing public.
On January 5, 2016, MannKind announced the termination of its licensing pact with Sanofi-Aventis in the U.S. for the development and sale of its inhaled insulin product Afrezza. On that same day, Reuters reported that a Sanofi spokesman said Afrezza continued to suffer from a low level of prescriptions, despite substantial sales efforts. On this news, shares of MannKind fell $0.70 per share or over 48% to close at $0.75 per share on January 5, 2016, damaging investors. On January 6, 2016, the LA Times reported that some doctors and analysts suggested that a botched roll-out by Sanofi contributed to Afrezza's struggles.
