Merrill Lynch Faces Class Action for Role in Zale Buyout

Merrill Lynch must defend its role in the USD 690 million sale of the Zale Corp. jewelry chain after a judge refused on October 1, 2015 to dismiss a shareholder class action that alleged the deal short-changed investors. The preliminary ruling by the Delaware Court of Chancery, a premiere venue for shareholder lawsuits, found Merrill Lynch could have aided the Zale board breach their duties to investors. It is the latest ruling by the court that potentially exposes a Wall Street bank to damages in a merger deal. Zale agreed in 2014 to be acquired by rival Signet Jewelers for USD 21 per share, or USD 690 million. TIG Advisors, which held nearly 10% of Zale stock, called the deal grossly unfair and shareholders only narrowly approved the sale. Soon after the deal was announced, shareholders filed a class action challenging the deal price and named as defendants Zale's board, Signet and Merrill, a unit of Bank of America. The ruling by Vice Chancellor Donald Parsons dismissed the Zale board and Signet as defendants. However, Parsons found Merrill could be liable to shareholders because it failed to disclose potential conflicts. Merrill Lynch never told Zale's board that a month before it was hired by the board the bank made a presentation to Signet's chief financial officer about acquiring Zales for USD 17 to USD 21 a share. Like Merrill with Zale, RBC was alleged to have aided the Rural/Metro board breach its duty to shareholders. The Delaware Supreme Court heard oral arguments this week by RBC seeking to overturn that ruling, which has prompted many shareholders to expand their class actions beyond board members to include deep-pocketed investment banks as defendants.
