DEADLINE ALERT: Brower Piven Notifies Shareholders of September 30, 2016 Deadline In Class Action Lawsuit And Encourages Those With Losses In Excess of $100,000 From Investment In Tokai Pharmaceuticals, Inc. To Contact The Firm - TKAI

/EIN News/ -- STEVENSON, Md., Sept. 22, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The securities litigation law firm of Brower Piven, A Professional Corporation, announces that a class action lawsuit has been commenced in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York on behalf of purchasers of Tokai Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Nasdaq:TKAI) (“Tokai” or the “Company”) securities during the period between June 24, 2015 and July 25, 2016, inclusive (the “Class Period”).  Investors who wish to become proactively involved in the litigation have until September 30, 2016 to seek appointment as lead plaintiff.

If you wish to choose counsel to represent you and the Class, you must apply to be appointed lead plaintiff and be selected by the Court.  The lead plaintiff will direct the litigation and participate in important decisions including whether to accept a settlement for the Class in the action.  The lead plaintiff will be selected from among applicants claiming the largest loss from investment in Tokai securities during the Class Period.  Members of the Class will be represented by the lead plaintiff and counsel chosen by the lead plaintiff.  No class has yet been certified in the above action.

The complaint accuses the defendants of violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 by virtue of the defendants’ failure to disclose during the Class Period that there were significant structural problems with the trial design for Tokai’s pivotal Phase 3 galeterone study, ARMOR3-SV. Consequently, ARMOR3-SV was unlikely to succeed in meeting its primary endpoint and, as a result, commercialization of galeterone was less likely and/or imminent than Tokai had led investors to believe.

According to the complaint, following a November 2, 2015 article describing the structural problems with the design of ARMOR3-SV and stating that it would fail in Phase 3, and a July 26, 2016 announcement of plans to discontinue ARMOR3-SV, the value of Tokai shares declined significantly.

If you have suffered a loss in excess of $100,000 from investment in Tokai securities purchased on or after June 24, 2015 and held through the revelation of negative information during and/or at the end of the Class Period and would like to learn more about this lawsuit and your ability to participate as a lead plaintiff, without cost or obligation to you, please visit our website at  You may also request more information by contacting Brower Piven either by email at or by telephone at (410) 415-6616.  Brower Piven also encourages anyone with information regarding the Company’s conduct during the period in question to contact the firm, including whistleblowers, former employees, shareholders and others.
