On or around 03/28/2017 (Notice of voluntarily dismissal)
Filing Date: February 01, 2017
According to the Complaint, On December 14, 2016, Neustar issued a press release announcing that it had entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Merger Agreement”) to sell Neustar to Golden Gate. Under the terms of the Merger Agreement, Golden Gate will acquire all outstanding shares of Neustar for $33.50 in cash (the “Merger Consideration”).
On January 17, 2017, Neustar filed a Preliminary Proxy Statement on Schedule 14A (the “Proxy”) with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). The Complaint alleges the Proxy, which recommends that Neustar stockholders vote in favor of the Proposed Transaction, omits or misrepresents material information concerning, among other things: (i) Neustar management’s projections, utilized by the Company’s financial advisor, J.P. Morgan Securities, LLC (“J.P. Morgan”), in its financial analyses; (ii) the valuation analyses performed by J.P. Morgan in connection with the rendering of its fairness opinion; and (iii) the background of the Proposed Transaction. The failure to adequately disclose such material information constitutes a violation of the above-referenced sections of the Exchange Act as stockholders need such information in order to cast a fully-informed vote in connection with the Proposed Transaction.
This case was voluntarily dismissed on March 28, 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.
