Therefore the investigation concerns whether the Allos Therapeutics Board of Directors undertook an adequate and in particular breached their fiduciary duties to the Allos Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ:ALTH) shareholder by failing to adequately shop the Company before entering into the transaction.

Warburg Pincus reported on March 31, 2011 that it holds over 26million shares of Allos Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ: ALTH) or 24.7% of the outstanding shares.

The investigation concerns also whether AMAG Pharmaceuticals, Inc would underpay for NASDAQ:ALTH shares, thus unlawfully harming Allos Therapeutics stockholders.
