The KeyW Holding Corporation Securities Litigation
On or around 06/06/2019 (Court's order of dismissal)
Filing Date: May 17, 2019
According to the Complaint, KeyW is an innovative national security solutions provider to the Intelligence, Cyber, and Counterterrorism communities.
This action stems from a proposed transaction announced on April 22, 2019, pursuant to which The KeyW Holding Corporation will be acquired by Jacobs Engineering Group Inc.
On May 13, 2019, Defendants filed a Solicitation/Recommendation Statement with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission in connection with the Proposed Transaction. The Complaint alleges that the Solicitation Statement omits material information with respect to the Proposed Transaction, which renders the Solicitation Statement false and misleading.
This case was voluntarily dismissed on June 6, 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.
