Case Status:    DISMISSED    
On or around 03/30/2017 (Date of order of final judgment)

Filing Date: March 06, 2017

According to the Complaint, On February 21, 2017, Popeyes’ Board of Directors (the “Board” or “Individual Defendants”) caused the Company to enter into an agreement and plan of merger (the “Merger Agreement”) with Restaurant Brands International Inc., Restaurant Brands Holdings Corp., and Orange, Inc. Pursuant to the terms of the Merger Agreement, shareholders of Popeyes will
receive $79.00 per share in cash.

On February 27, 2017, defendants filed a Solicitation/Recommendation Statement and a Form S-4 Registration Statement (together, the “Solicitation Statement”) with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) in connection with the Proposed
Transaction. The Complaint alleges the Solicitation Statement omits material information with respect to the Proposed Transaction, which renders the Solicitation Statement false and misleading.

On March 30, 2017, this case was voluntarily dismissed.

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.
