Jul 9 15
Jeremy Hoff, a purported stockholder of Dealertrack Technologies Inc., on July 6, 2015 filed a putative stockholder class-action complaint in the Court of Chancery of the State of Delaware against Dealertrack Technologies, its board members, Cox Automotive Inc. and its unit Runway Acquisition Co. The complaint alleges that, among other things, each board member breached fiduciary duties to Dealertrack Technologies stockholders in connection with the pending acquisition of the company by Cox Automotive and that Cox Automotive and unit Runway Acquisition aided and abetted those breaches. The suit seeks, among other things, declaration as a class action, an order enjoining the offer, the rescission of the offer if it has already been consummated or the award of rescissory damages, an accounting by defendants to plaintiff and other members of the class for all damages allegedly caused by them, and an award of the costs related to the action including attorneys and experts fees. Dealertrack Technologies and its board believe the allegations are without merit. The company said a negative outcome could have a material adverse effect if it leads to preliminary or permanent injunctive relief or rescission of the merger agreement.
