City National Settles Merger-Related Lawsuit
May 21 15
City National Corp. settled a putative class-action lawsuit alleging the company's directors of breaching fiduciary duties in connection with the company's proposed merger with Royal Bank of Canada. The suit filed April 29 alleged that the directors agreed to the proposed merger at an inadequate price and pursuant to an inadequate process that involved self-dealing, and failed to disclose purportedly material information to stockholders in connection with the merger. The settlement on May 15 requires, among other things, City National to make certain supplemental disclosures relating to the merger. Although the defendants deny the allegations made in the suit and believe that no supplemental disclosure is required under applicable laws, in order to avoid the burden and expense of further litigation, City National agreed to make such supplemental disclosures. The stipulation of settlement is subject to confirmatory discovery and customary conditions, including court approval following notice to City National's stockholders. A hearing will be scheduled at which the California state court will consider the fairness, reasonableness and adequacy of the settlement.
