According to the Complaint, Bill Barrett Corporation (BBG) is an independent energy company that develops, acquires and explores for oil and natural gas resources.
On December 5, 2017, BBG issued a press release announcing the proposed merger between BBG, through its subsidiaries, and Fifth Creek Energy Operating Company, LLC ( “Fifth Creek”).
The Complaint alleges that on December 22, 2017, the Board authorized the filing of a materially incomplete and misleading preliminary proxy statement/prospectus on Form S-4 (the “Preliminary Proxy”) with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”), in violation of Sections 14(a) and 20(a) of the Exchange Act.

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.
