Case Status:    ONGOING    
On or around 10/19/2017 (Ongoing date of last review)

Filing Date: October 17, 2017

According to the Complaint, this action stems from a proposed transaction announced on March 7, 2017 (the "Proposed Transaction"), pursuant to which TerraForm Global, Inc. ("TerraForm" or the "Company") will be acquired by Orion US Holdings 1 L.P. ("Parent") and its wholly owned subsidiary, BRE GLBL Holdings Inc. ("Merger Sub"), which were formed by affiliates of Brookfield Asset Management Inc. ("BAM," and together with Parent and Merger Sub, "Brookfield").

On March 6, 2017, TerraForm's Board of Directors (the "Board" or "Individual Defenants") caused the Company to enter into an agreement and plan of merger (the "Merger Agreement") with Orion.

On October 10, 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 that the Proxy Statement omits material information with respect to the Proposed Transaction, which renders the Proxy 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.
