PHILADELPHIA, Jan. 19, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Kaskela Law LLC announces that it is investigating NantKwest, Inc. (“NantKwest”) (NASDAQ: NK) on behalf of the company’s shareholders.
On December 21, 2020, NantKwest announced that it had entered into an agreement to merge with ImmunityBio, a privately-held company, in a stock-for-stock transaction. Under the terms of the proposed agreement, ImmunityBio shareholders will receive a fixed exchange ratio of 0.8190 shares of NantKwest for each share of ImmunityBio stock owned, and upon completion of the merger, existing NantKwest shareholders will only own approximately 28% of the combined company.
