The Complaint alleges in connection with the Proposed Transaction, defendants filed a materially incomplete and misleading proxy statement with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) on February 15, 2017 .
Pursuant to a stipulation by the parties, this case was ordered dismissed on May 9, 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.
