Case Status:    DISMISSED    
On or around 10/07/2020 (Notice of voluntarily dismissal)

Filing Date: August 18, 2020

According to the Complaint, Noble Energy, Inc. is an independent oil and natural gas exploration and production company. The Company operates a high-quality portfolio of assets onshore in the United States, offshore in the Eastern Mediterranean, and off the west coast of Africa.

This action stems from a proposed transaction announced on July 20, 2020, pursuant to which Noble Energy, Inc. will be acquired by Chevron Corporation.

On July 20, 2020, Noble Energy’s Board of Directors caused the Company to enter into an agreement and plan of merger with Chevron. Pursuant to the terms of the Merger Agreement, Noble Energy’s stockholders will receive 0.1191 of a share of Parent common stock for each share of Noble Energy common stock they own.

On August 11, 2020, Defendants filed a Form S-4 Registration Statement with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission in connection with the Proposed Transaction. The Complaint alleges that the Registration Statement omits material information with respect to the Proposed Transaction, which renders the Registration Statement false and misleading.

This case was voluntarily dismissed on October 7, 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.
