FTC To Reportedly Block Sysco-US Foods Merger

Federal Trade Commission (FTC) is leaning toward suing to block the acquisition of US Foods, Inc. by Sysco Corporation (NYSE:SYY), the New York Post has learned. Sysco claims the merger will lower its costs allowing it to drop prices. “My impression is they are going to file a suit,” said a direct source who would like to see the merger approved. Regulators are set to vote in the afternoon on the controversial $3.5 billion merger. Sysco declined to comment for this story, as did the FTC.

District Court Approves Hunton’s $297 Million Class Action Settlement for USF

On December 9, 2014, U.S. District Judge Alvin W. Thompson granted final approval of a $297 million settlement between plaintiffs in a multidistrict class action and defendant U.S. Foodservice, Inc. and its former Dutch parent company, Koninklijke Ahold, N.V. This agreement is believed to be one of the large civil RICO class action settlements in recent history and was reached on behalf of a class of customers, primarily hospitals, restaurant operators, universities and other food service providers, who purchased products from U.S. Foodservice under cost-plus arrangements between 1998 and 2005. The class claimed that it was defrauded by U.S. Foodservice when it created six companies that it controlled to inflate the 'cost component' of the products that were subject to the arrangement. The parties entered into settlement talks when the United States Supreme Court declined to review a federal appeals court opinion affirming certification of a nationwide class of plaintiffs for RICO and breach of contract violations against U.S. Foodservice.
