Tullett Prebon Announces Settlement of New Jersey Superior Court Litigation

Tullett Prebon plc announced the settlement of the action taken by the company and certain of its subsidiaries against BGC Partners Inc. in the New Jersey Superior Court, in response to the raid on the company's business by BGC in the second half of 2009. The company's action alleged claims for racketeering, unfair competition, misappropriation of confidential information and trade secrets, and tortious interference. The company has entered into an agreement with BGC under which BGC will pay $100 million to the company to settle the litigation in the New Jersey Superior Court. In a prior ruling, the Judge had dismissed the company's claim under the New Jersey racketeering law, and any damages that would have been awarded by the jury in the case would therefore not have been subject to trebling.
