The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period defendants misrepresented and/or failed to disclose that: (1) the Company hired a promoter, The DreamTeam Group, to boost Galena's share price; (2) the promoter posted misleading articles on Galena's behalf without properly disclosing its paid marketing relationship; and (3) as a result, the Company's statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.
