Case Status:    DISMISSED    
On or around 10/19/2018 (Stipulation and order of dismissal (voluntary dismissal))

Filing Date: September 24, 2018

According to the Complaint, Perry Ellis International, Inc. ("Perry Ellis" or the "Company") is a leading designer, distributor, and licensor of a broad line of men’s and women’s apparel, accessories, and fragrances.

This action stems from a proposed transaction announced on June 16, 2018 (the “Proposed Transaction”), pursuant to which Perry Ellis will be taken private by Perry Ellis’s founder and member of the Company’s Board of Directors. Pursuant to the terms of the Merger Agreement, Feldenkreis Holdings will acquire all of the outstanding common shares of Perry Ellis not already beneficially owned by the Feldenkreis family for $27.50 per share in cash.

On September 10, 2018, Defendants filed a proxy statement with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) in connection with the Proposed Transaction (the “Proxy Statement”). The Complaint alleges that the Proxy Statement, which scheduled a stockholder vote on the Proposed Transaction for October 18, 2018, omits material information with respect to the Proposed Transaction, which renders the Proxy Statement false and misleading.

This case was voluntarily dismissed as moot on October 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.
