New York, New York, UNITED STATES

NEW YORK, Aug. 09, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Bragar Eagel & Squire, P.C., a nationally recognized stockholder rights law firm, has launched an investigation into whether the officers or directors of Global Blood Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ: GBT) (“GBT”) breached their fiduciary duties or violated the federal securities laws in connection with the company’s acquisition by Pfizer Inc. (NYSE: PFE) (“Pfizer”).

On August 8, 2022, GBT announced that it had entered into an agreement to be acquired by Pfizer in an all-cash deal with an enterprise value of $5.4 billion. Pursuant to the merger agreement, Pfizer will acquire all the outstanding shares of GBT for $68.50 per share in cash. The deal is scheduled to close as early as the fourth quarter of 2022.
