Biota Pharmaceuticals Shares Fall on Termination of Laninamivir Octanoate Contract

Shares of Biota Pharmaceuticals fell 34%, to close at $3.68 on April 29, 2014, following an announcement by the company that the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response and Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA) issued a Stop-Work Order "notifying the Company to discontinue work on a number of activities under [its] contract." The Stop-Work Order is contingent upon the outcome of an In Process Review of the Biota's contract for the development of laninamivir octanoate.   The BARDA contract provides up to $231 million in financial support for the development of laninamivir octanoate for the treatment of influenza A and B in the United States.
