TWERSKY LAW GROUP Notifies Rain Oncology (RAIN) Investors of Class Action

Twersky Law Group, a highly regarded and reputable law firm based in New York, wishes to inform investors about a significant development in the form of a class action lawsuit against Rain Oncology Inc.  (“Rain” or “the Company) (NASDAQ: RAIN) and certain officers of the company. This lawsuit has been filed on behalf of all individuals and entities that held, purchased, or otherwise acquired Rain securities from July 20, 2021 through May 19, 2023 (the “Class Period”). Investors who acquired Rain securities during this defined timeframe are strongly encouraged to participate in this case by contacting atara@twerskylawgroup.com. The deadline to file a motion for appointment of lead plaintiff is September 12, 2023.

The fundamental objective of this class action lawsuit is to recover for the benefit of investors who purchased Rain securities during the Class Period, the losses they sustained as a consequence of the misleading statements made by Defendants in violation of the federal securities laws.




On May 22, 2023, the Company announced that milademetan failed to meet its primary endpoint of progression free survival in the MANTRA study. Moreover, the Company announced adverse event findings that, according to analysts, indicated that the dosing schedule had not been optimized prior to commencing the study. In response to the announcement, Rain’s stock price substantially dropped from $9.93 per share to $1.22 per share, eliminating approximately $316 million in market capitalization in one day. The complaint alleges that defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (i) the Company concealed risks inherent in the design of its Phase 3 MANTRA study particularly with regard to proceeding directly to Phase 3 from Phase 1; and, (ii) as a result, the Companys statements about the trial and the likelihood of FDA approval were materially misleading during the Class Period.

It is important to note that a class action lawsuit has already been filed in connection with these allegations.

This process entails requesting the Court to designate them as the primary representative on behalf of the entire Class. The deadline for submitting such a request is September 12, 2023. It is important to emphasize that while becoming a lead plaintiff can offer certain advantages, participation in the recovery process and the potential for financial compensation does not mandate serving as a lead plaintiff.
