According to the Complaint, Resolute is an oil and natural gas exploration company that operates in the southern and western regions of the United States.
This action is brought in connection with the proposed merger (the “Proposed Transaction”) of Resolute with Cimarex Energy Company. On November 19, 2018, Resolute and Cimarex jointly announced the Proposed Transaction in a press release.

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.
