Filing Date: July 21, 2017
According to the Complaint, on May 21, 2017, Nutraceutical’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 Nutrition Parent LLC (“Parent”) and Nutrition Sub, Inc. (“Merger Sub,” and together with and Parent and HGGC, LLC, “HGGC”).
On July 12, 2017, defendants filed a proxy statement (the “Proxy Statement”) with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) in connection with the Proposed Transaction. The Complaint alleges the Proxy Statement omits material information with respect to the Proposed Transaction, which renders the Proxy Statement false and misleading.
This case was voluntarily dismissed on September 14, 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.
