Case Status:    DISMISSED    
On or around 01/09/2020 (Other)

Filing Date: September 11, 2019

According to the Complaint, Carbon Black provides endpoint security solutions, detecting and preventing threats, via a cloud-based platform.

This action stems from a proposed transaction announced on August 22, 2019, when Carbon Black and VMware announced that they had entered into a definitive merger agreement pursuant to which VMware will acquire all of the outstanding shares of common stock of Carbon Black for $26.00 per share. The deal is valued at approximately $2.1 billion and is expected to close by January 31, 2020.

On September 6, 2019, Defendants filed a Schedule 14D-9 Recommendation Statement with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission . The Complaint alleges that the Recommendation Statement is materially incomplete and contains misleading representations and information in violation of Sections 14(e) and 20(a) of the Exchange Act.

This case was voluntarily dismissed on January 8, 2020.

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.
