NEW YORK, January 29, 2019 – Bragar Eagel & Squire, P.C. is investigating potential claims against Ligand Pharmaceuticals Incorporated (NYSE: LGND).  Our investigation concerns whether Ligand has violated the federal securities laws and/or engaged in other unlawful business practices.

On January 16, 2019, Citron Research published a report entitled “Pipeline Ligand Pipe Dream,” describing its observations of Ligand’s business.  The report detailed sources of future revenues by drug candidate, showing that roughly 60% of Ligand’s milestone payments stem from just two companies.  The report goes on to allege that some of Ligand’s partners have corporate addresses that are actually a private residence or UPS box, or do not occupy their supposed address.

On this news, Ligand’s share price fell by more than 16%, closing at $110.05 on January 16, 2019.
