Envision Healthcare Holdings, Inc. Securities Litigation
On or around 02/21/2017 (Other)
Filing Date: August 31, 2016
According to a law firm press release, this action stems from a proposed transaction announced on June 15, 2016, pursuant to which Envision Healthcare will be acquired by AmSurg Corp. (“Parent”) through Parent’s wholly-owned subsidiary, New Amethyst Corp. (“Merger Sub,” and together with Parent, “AmSurg”). On June 15, 2016, the Board caused Envision to enter into an agreement and plan of merger (the “Merger Agreement”). Pursuant to the terms of the Merger Agreement, AmSurg will acquire all of the outstanding shares of Envision common stock for 0.334 AmSurg shares per Envision share, in a transaction valued at approximately $4.73 billion. The Complaint alleges that the Form S-4 Registration Statement omits material information with respect to the proposed transaction, which renders the Form S-4 Registration Statement false and misleading.
This case was voluntarily dismissed on January 6, 2017.

About the Company & Securities Data
"Company" information provides the industry and sector classification and headquarters state for the primary company-defendant in the litigation. In general, "Securities" information provides the ticker symbol, market, and market status for the underlying securities at issue in the litigation.
In most cases, the primary company-defendant actually issued the securities that are the subject of the litigation, and the securities information and company information relate to the same entity. In a small subset of cases, however, the primary company-defendant is not the issuer (for example, cases against third party brokers/dealers), and the securities information and company information do not relate to the same entity.
