Swift Transportation Company Securities Litigation
On or around 08/31/2017 (Court's order of dismissal)
Filing Date: May 31, 2017
According to the Complaint, on April 9, 2017, Swift’s Board of Directors (the “Board” or “Individual Defendants”) caused the Company to enter into an agreement and plan of merger (the “Merger Agreement”) with Knight. Pursuant to the terms of the Merger Agreement, the combination between Swift and Knight will be implemented through several steps that will occur in immediate succession.
On May 24, 2017, defendants filed a Form S-4 Registration Statement (the “Registration Statement”) with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) in connection with the Proposed Transaction. The Complaint alleges the Registration Statement omits material information with respect to the Proposed Transaction, which renders the Registration Statement false and misleading.

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.
