Scopia Capital Management LP Key Developments

Acorda Therapeutics Investor Pushes Acorda For Sale

A New York-based hedge fund that owns 17% of Acorda Therapeutics, Inc. (NasdaqGS:ACOR) on August 7, 2017 called on the U.S. developer of drugs targeting neurological disorders to explore a sale, according to a regulatory filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. Pressure on Acorda to pursue a sale comes after a judge in March struck down key patents of its multiple sclerosis drug Ampyra, which accounts for almost all of its revenue. Scopia Capital Management LP published a letter it had sent to Acorda's board of directors on August 7, 2017, informing the company that it had accumulated a 17 percent stake and requesting the appointment of a special committee of independent directors to oversee "a review of all strategic alternatives to maximize value," including a sale.
