NEW YORK, Oct. 15, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Notice is hereby given that Monteverde & Associates PC has filed a class action lawsuit in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California, Case No. 4:20-cv-06733-YGR, on behalf of common shareholders of Aimmune Therapeutics, Inc. ("Aimmune" or the "Company") (AIMT) who held Aimmune securities as of the close of the tender offer on October 9, 2020 (the "Class Period"), and have been harmed by Aimmune and its board of directors' (the "Board") alleged violations of Sections 14(e) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the "Exchange Act") in connection with the sale of the Company to Société des Produits Nestlé S.A. ("Nestlé").
Under the terms of the sale, each share of Aimmune common stock was converted into the right to receive $34.50 in cash per share of Aimmune common stock owned.

In particular, the complaint alleges that the Recommendation Statement contained materially incomplete and misleading information concerning: (i) financial projections for Aimmune; (ii) the valuation analyses performed by Aimmune's financial advisors J.P. Morgan Securities L.L.C. and Lazard Frères & Co. LLC, in support of their fairness opinions; and (iii) background information of the offer.
