An investigation on behalf of investors of AveXis, Inc. (NASDAQ: AVXS) in connection with the proposed takeover was announced.

San Diego, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/19/2018 -- An investigation was announced for investors, who currently hold shares of AveXis, Inc. (NASDAQ: AVXS), over the takeover of AveXis, Inc.

The investigation by a law firm concerns whether certain officers and directors of AveXis, Inc. breached their fiduciary duties owed to NASDAQ: AVXS investors in connection with the proposed acquisition.
