Levi & Korsinsky LLP Notifies Investors of Claims of Breaches of Fiduciary Duty against the Board of Morgan's Foods Inc

Levi & Korsinsky notified investors of Morgan's Foods Inc. of claims of breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of state law against the board of directors of the company in connection with the sale of the company to Apex Restaurant Management Inc. A complaint was filed in Ohio state court. Under the terms of the transaction, Morgan's Foods shareholders will receive $5.00 in cash for each share of Morgan's Foods stock they own. The claims concern whether the Morgan's Foods Board of Directors breached their fiduciary duties to stockholders by failing to adequately shop the Company before agreeing to enter into this transaction, and whether Apex Restaurant Management Inc. is underpaying for Morgan's Foods shares.

Shareholder Files Class Action Complaint Against Morgan's Foods, Inc., Apex Restaurant Management, Inc. and Apex Brands Foods

On April 15, 2014, an alleged shareholder filed a derivative action and a purported class action complaint in the Court of Common Pleas of Cuyahoga County, Ohio, relating to the recently announced agreement and plan of merger, dated as of March 30, 2014, by and among Morgan's Foods, Inc., Apex Restaurant Management, Inc. (Apex) and Apex Brands Foods, Inc. (Sub), pursuant to which Morgan's Foods will become a wholly owned subsidiary of Apex. The complaint names Morgan's Foods, the members of the board of directors of Morgan's Foods, Apex, and Sub as defendants, and generally alleges that, in connection with approving the merger, the directors breached their fiduciary duties owed to Morgan's Foods and its shareholders, and that Apex and Sub aided and abetted the directors' alleged breaches of fiduciary duty. It also alleges Morgan's Foods preliminary proxy statement filed with the Securities Exchange Commission on April 4, 2014, omits and misrepresents material information necessary to shareholders in order for them to be able to make a fully informed vote to adopt the Merger. The complaint seeks, among other things, certification of the case as a class action, an injunction against the consummation of the transaction, rescission or rescissory damages if the merger is consummated, a judgment against the defendants for damages, and an award of fees, expenses and costs to plaintiffs and their attorneys. Morgan's Foods and the directors believe the allegations of the complaint are without merit and intend to vigorously defend the allegations contained in it.
