Case Status:    DISMISSED    
On or around 09/21/2017 (Stipulation and order of dismissal (voluntary dismissal))

Filing Date: August 04, 2017

According to the Complaint, on July 18, 2017, Rocket Fuel issued a press release announcing that it had entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Merger Agreement”) to sell Rocket Fuel to Sizmek.

On August 2, 2017, Rocket Fuel filed a Solicitation/Recommendation Statement on Schedule 14D-9 (the “Recommendation Statement”) with the SEC. The Complaint alleges the Recommendation Statement, which recommends that Rocket Fuel stockholders tender their shares in favor of the Proposed Transaction, omits or misrepresents material information concerning, among other things: (i) the data and inputs underlying the financial valuation analyses that support the fairness opinion provided by the Company’s financial advisor, Needham & Company, LLC (“Needham”); and (ii) Rocket Fuel insiders’ potential conflicts of interest.

On September 21, 2017, pursuant to a Stipulation by the Parties, the Court dismissed this case.

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.
