According to the Complaint, Avenue Therapeutics, Inc. ("Avenue" or the "Company") is a specialty pharmaceutical company that acquires, licenses, develops, and commercializes products primarily for use in the acute/intensive care hospital setting.

On November 13, 2018, Avenue and InvaGen Pharmaceuticals Inc. issued a joint press release announcing they had entered into a Stock Purchase and Merger Agreement dated November 12, 2018 to sell Avenue to InvaGen in a two-stage transaction.

On December 21, 2018, Avenue filed a Definitive Proxy Statement on Schedule 14A (the "Proxy Statement") with the SEC.
