|Merger and Acquisitions FAQ|
Here are a few questions we regularly encounter, feel free to email and ask your own questions.
I own only 100 shares am I eligible to file a claim?
Answer: Yes. All shareholders are eligible to file a claim no matter how many or few shares they hold. However, you will need to hold at least one share of the stock until the case is concluded.
How much will bringing lawsuit cost me?
Answer: Nothing. There is no cost to shareholders who wish to bring Merger cases. Our lawyers will advance all the costs, file the case and you will never pay for our services.
Will my shares be affected by the case?
Answer: Your shares are not part of the case, your status as a shareholder is what gives you the right to take part in the lawsuit. Your shares are not directly involved; however the price of the shares you own could be indirectly impacted by the successful outcome.
Are these cases often without merit brought by greedy lawyers?
Answer: No, we believe in our cases and the merits of them. The problem is often that without the disclosures we cannot be sure in advance of how strong the case will be. Many deals need to be policed by shareholders, it is their right to check the greed of corporations.
Will the company come after me?
Answer: Under virtually no set of circumstances could a company ever take any action against a shareholder for bringing a merger case.
Will the lawsuit increase the value of my shares?
Answer: Maybe. The lawsuit cannot guarantee any outcome, but it is almost certain to produce better conditions for other bidders for the shares, provide a fair process and ensure full material disclosures with a revised proxy statement.
