Rigrodsky & Long, P.A. announces that it is investigating potential legal
claims against the board of directors of PROLOR Biotech, Inc. (“PROLOR” or the
“Company”) (NYSE MKT: PBTH) regarding possible breaches of fiduciary duties
and other violations of law related to the Company’s entry into an agreement
to be acquired by OPKO Health, Inc. (“OPKO”) (NYSE: OPK) in a transaction
valued at approximately $480 million.

Under the terms of the proposal, public shareholders of PROLOR will receive
0.9951 shares of OPKO for each share of PROLOR they own. Based upon OPKO’s
closing stock price of $7.06 on April 23, 2013, PROLOR shareholders would have
received consideration valued at approximately $7.025 per share.

The investigation concerns whether PROLOR’s board of directors failed to
adequately shop the Company and obtain the best possible value for PROLOR’s
shareholders before entering into an agreement with OPKO. According to Yahoo!
Finance, at least one analyst has set a price target for PROLOR stock at
$12.00.

If you own the common stock of PROLOR and purchased your shares before April
24, 2013, if you have information or would like to learn more about these
claims, or if you wish to discuss these matters or have any questions
