Hastings Entertainment announced that the United States District Court for the Northern District of Texas, Amarillo Division, has entered an Agreed Stipulation and Agreed Order dismissing, with prejudice, the lawsuit captioned CV-00072-J-Andreas Oberegger and David A. Capps, directly and derivatively on behalf of Hastings Entertainment, Inc., v. Danny W. Gurr, Ann S. Lieff, Frank O. Marrs, John H. Marmaduke, Jeffrey G. Shrader, Draw Another Circle, LLC, Hendrix Acquisition Corp., Joel Weinshanker and National Entertainment Collectibles Association, Inc., as defendants, and Hastings Entertainment, Inc., as a nominal defendant. This lawsuit challenged the merger transaction involving Hastings and an affiliate of Joel Weinshanker pursuant to the Agreement and Plan of Merger entered into by Hastings, Draw Another Circle (Parent) and Hendrix Acquisition, each of which are owned, directly or indirectly, by Weinshanker. The plaintiffs in this lawsuit were purported shareholders of Hastings and alleged, among other things, that the merger contemplated in the Merger Agreement provided for insufficient consideration to be paid to Hastings' shareholders in exchange for their shares of Hastings' common stock, that the officers and directors of Hastings breached their respective fiduciary duties in the course of negotiating and approving the Merger Agreement and that the other defendants aided and abetted such breach of fiduciary duties. In accepting Plaintiff's desire to drop their lawsuit Hastings, along with the other defendants, agreed not to bring a claim against the plaintiffs for recovery of costs incurred.
