Filing Date: November 09, 2018
According to the Complaint, Rowan is a global provider of offshore contract drilling services to the oil and gas industry in the ultra-deepwater and shallow water market, with a focus on high-specification and harsh-environment jack-up rigs and ultra-deepwater drillships.
October 8, 2018, Ensco and Rowan issued a joint press release to announce the Proposed Merger between Rowan and Ensco.
On October 30, 2018, Rowan filed the Proxy with the SEC in connection with the Proposed Merger. The Proxy solicits the Company’s shareholders to vote in favor of the Proposed Merger. The Complaint alleges that the Proxy misrepresents and/or omits material information that is necessary for the Company’s shareholders to cast an informed vote regarding Proposed Merger, in violation of Sections 14(a) and 20(a) of the Exchange Act.
This case was voluntarily dismissed on April 1, 2019.

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.
