Fate Therapeutics, Inc. (FATE) Investigation:

The investigation focuses on Fate's widely touted collaboration agreement with Janssen Biotech, pursuant to which Janssen and Fate agreed to collaborate to develop iPSC-derived CAR-NK and CAR T-cell product candidates for the treatment of cancer.

As recently as Aug. 2022, Fate assured investors with respect to its Janssen agreement that "[w]e continue to show strong momentum in bringing multiplexed-engineered iPSC-derived CAR NK and CAR T cell collaboration to patients for the treatment of hematologic malignancies and solid tumors."

Fate's assurances came into question after the market closed on Jan. 5, 2023, when it announced that on Jan. 3, 2023 the company received a notice of termination of the collaboration agreement from Janssen after Fate declined Janssen's proposal to continue the agreement on revised terms.

The company also said that all collaboration activities with Janssen will be wound down during Q1 2023 and that it is slashing its workforce from 545 (as of Sept. 30, 2022) to about 220 in Q1 2023.

This news resulted in a wave of analyst downgrades and drove the price of Fate Therapeutics shares down over 60% on Jan. 6, 2022, wiping out more than $600 million of shareholder value in a single day.

"We're focused on investors' losses and whether Fate may have misled investors about the strength of- and prospects for- its work with Janssen," said Reed Kathrein, the Hagens Berman partner leading the investigation.
