Lemelson Capital Increases Short Position in Ligand Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ: LGND), Calls on US Attorney to Investigate
As Ligand shares implode, reaching new multi-year low, Lemelson calls for intervention to protect investors
Shelburne, VT, July 30, 2019 -- Lemelson Capital Management (LCM), a private investment management firm, today announced that it had increased its short position in Ligand Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ: LGND). The firm today also called on the US Attorney’s office for the Southern District of California to investigate Ligand for alleged criminal violations of federal securities laws amidst what LCM has called SEC failures.
LCM’s 2014-2018 research and commentary charted the alleged fraud. As of today, Ligand’s shares continue to plummet, contributing to a drop in the share price of as much as 65 percent since late September 2018 and destroying billions of dollars in shareholder value, even as markets recently achieved record highs.

Sadly, investors have been ruined by Ligand’s alleged scheme while the SEC has ignored the red flags and botched opportunities for a proper investigation of the company,” said Lemelson Capital’s Chief Investment Officer Fr. Emmanuel Lemelson."
