According to the Complaint, this action is brought as a class action by Plaintiff on behalf of himself and the other public holders of the common stock of Calgon Carbon Corporation (“Calgon” or the “Company”) against the Company and the members of the Company’s board of directors (collectively, the “Board” or “Individual Defendants,” and, together with Calgon, the “Defendants”) for their violations of Sections 14(a) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”), 15 U.S.C. §§ 78n(a), 78t(a), SEC Rule 14a-9, 17 C.F.R. 240.14a-9, and Regulation G, 17 C.F.R. § 244.100 in connection with the proposed merger (the “Proposed Merger”) between Calgon and Kuraray Co., Ltd. (“Kuraray”).

On September 21, 2017, the Board caused the Company to enter into an agreement and plan of merger (“Merger Agreement”), pursuant to which the Company’s shareholders stand to receive $21.50 in cash for each share of Calgon stock they own (the “Merger Consideration”), representing $1.1 billion in equity value.

The Complaint alleges that on October 27, 2017, in order to convince Calgon shareholders to vote in favor of the Proposed Merger, the Board authorized the filing of a materially incomplete and misleading Preliminary Proxy Statement on a Schedule 14A (the “Proxy”) with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”), in violation of Sections 14(a) and 20(a) of the Exchange Act.

This case was voluntarily dismissed on December 11, 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.
