The actions charge CytRx, its Chief Executive Officer, and stock promotion firms the DreamTeamGroup (“The DreamTeam”) and MissionIR with violations of the Securities and Exchange Act of 1934. CytRx, headquartered in Los Angeles, California, is a biopharmaceutical research and development company.The actions allege that during the Class Period, defendants made misleading statements and failed to disclose that numerous articles issued by The DreamTeam and MissionIR touting CytRx stock were in fact paid stock promotions under the control of CytRx. On February 12, 2014, an article published on TheStreet.com reported that Galena BioPharma, Inc. (“Galena”) had paid The DreamTeam and MissionIR to promote its stock without properly disclosing its paid relationship and that CytRx had also retained DreamTeam. On this news, the price of CytRx stock fell $0.54, or 8.18%, from its closing price of $6.60 per share on February 11, 2014, to close at $6.04 per share on February 12, 2014.
