NEW YORK -- October 4, 2013
Juan E. Monteverde, a partner at Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national
securities firm headquartered in New York City, is investigating the Board of
Directors of Biota Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (“Biota” or the “Company”) (NasdaqGS:
BOTA) for potential breaches of fiduciary duties in connection with their
conduct in seeking shareholders’ approval for an amendment of the Company’s
2007 Omnibus Equity and Incentive Plan.
Specifically, in the Proxy Statement filed by the Company with the Securities
and Exchange Commission on October 1, 2013, the Board of Directors recommends
that Biota’s shareholders vote to approve an amendment to the Company’s 2007
Omnibus Equity and Incentive Plan to increase the number of shares available
for issuance thereunder from 1,157,978 to 4,157,978. The issuance of the
additional shares could have a substantial dilutive effect on the shares of
Biota common stock.
