Martin Shkreli Sells All His Shares in Kalobios Pharmaceuticals Inc (KBIO)

Page 1 of 4

Kalobios Pharmaceuticals Inc (NASDAQ:KBIO) has been struggling for months to erase any connection with its former CEO, Martin Shkreli, who got arrested in December on securities fraud charges. Even though those charges weren’t related to Kalobios Pharmaceuticals, the company decided to fire him from the CEO position,yet the company remained under the spotlight because of the controversy his arrest has caused. Martin Shkreli caused so much attention not only because of the securities fraud allegations, but also because his company, Turing Pharmaceuticals, raised the price of a drug called Daraprim to $750 a tablet from $13.59, becoming known for reckless price-gouging in the process. Mr. Shkreli has also become a polarizing public figure, with social media comments that sometimes push the bounds of good taste.

Naturally, after this, any other potential investor had reserves about doing business with Kalobios Pharmaceuticals, as long as Martin Shkreli had any power, which is why Karlobios Pharmaceuticals was eager for months to cut off all connections with its former CEO. First, it reached an agreement under which Mr. Shkreli agreed to have limited rights as a shareholder, and both sides also granted that they would drop any legal charges they might have against each other.

Finally, a recently-amended 13D filing with the SEC revealed that Martin Shkreli has sold all of his 1.9 million common shares of Kalobios Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:KBIO) at $3.10 apiece, in a private transaction. In this way, Mr. Shkreli no longer owns any shares of Kalobios Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:KBIO).
