On or around 12/19/2018 (Notice of voluntarily dismissal)
Filing Date: September 25, 2017
According to the Complaint, this action stems from a proposed transaction announced on September 6, 2017 (the “Proposed Transaction”), pursuant to which Landauer, Inc. (“Landauer” or the “Company”) will be acquired by Fortive Corporation (“Parent”) and its indirect, wholly-owned subsidiary, Fern Merger Sub Inc. (“Merger Sub,” and together with Parent, “Fortive”).
The Complaint alleges that the Solicitation Statement filed with the SEC omits material information regarding the Proposed Transaction, which renders the Solicitation Statement false and misleading.
This case was voluntarily dismissed on December 19, 2018.

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.
