SAN DIEGO, April 25, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Shareholders Foundation, Inc. announces that a lawsuit was filed in California on behalf of certain purchasers of shares of NantKwest Inc (NASDAQ:NK) over alleged Securities Laws Violations by NantKwest Inc.

The plaintiff claims that the defendants issued certain allegedly false and misleading statements to investors and/or allegedly failed to disclose that NantKwest’s financial statements contained errors related to stock-based awards to NantKwest’s Chief Executive Officer and Executive Chairman defendant Patrick Soon-Shiong, that NantKwest’s financial statements contained errors related to build-to-suit lease accounting related to one of NantKwest’s research and development and good manufacturing practices facilities, that NantKwest lacked effective internal financial controls, and that as a result NantKwest’s public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.

On March 11, 2016, NantKwest announced that the Audit Committee of the Board of Directors of NantKwest Inc concluded, after discussion with management and Mayer Hoffman McCann P.C., NantKwest’s independent registered public accounting firm, that the interim financial statements contained in NantKwest’s quarterly reports on Form 10-Q for the quarters ended June 30, 2015 and September 30, 2015 should no longer be relied upon due to the combined effect of financial statement errors primarily attributable to certain stock-based awards to NantKwest’s Chief Executive Officer and Executive Chairman and build-to-suit lease accounting related to one of its research and development and Good Manufacturing Practices facilities.
