Harris Interactive Inc. Key Developments
Levi & Korsinsky, LLP Notifies Investors of Harris Interactive Inc. of Claims Against the Board in Connection to the Sale of the Company to Nielsen Holdings N.V
Dec 24 13
Levi & Korsinsky notified that investors of Harris Interactive Inc. of claims of breaches of fiduciary duty against the board of directors of the company in relation to the company's recently-announced merger agreement with Nielsen Holdings N.V. A complaint was filed in Delaware state court. On November 25, 2013 Nielsen Holdings announced it would purchase all outstanding common stock through a subsidiary formed for the purposes of making the offer. Under the terms of the transaction, the company shareholders will receive $2.00 for each share of Nielsen Holdings stock they own, subject to adjustment. The claims concern whether the company's 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 Nielsen is underpaying for company shares. Certain members of the company's Board have agreed to tender their shares.
