Elliott Associates, L.P. and Elliott International, L.P. Sues Kabel Deutschland Holding AG over its Refusal to Provide Special Auditor's Report

Elliott Associates, L.P. and Elliott International, L.P. announced that they has filed a lawsuit with the Munich regional court to gain access to the special auditor's report, which examines the behavior and actions of Kabel Deutschland Holding AG (KDG) and Vodafone before and during the public takeover of KDG by Vodafone. Among other topics, the report apparently examined several statements and actions of KDG concerning the takeover and also the valuation of the shares during the takeover offer by Vodafone. In conjunction with the filing, Elliott made the following statement regarding KDG's refusal to provide the report: First, Vodafone tried to cancel the special audit. Next, the management of KDG criticized the special auditor's report at the company's most recent AGM. Now, the management is refusing to provide shareholders with access to the report. This pattern of obstructing shareholder attempts to gain transparency into the Vodafone transaction is unacceptable and lacking any legal basis. Furthermore, it is absurd that the company has criticized the special auditor's report but won't make that report accessible to shareholders. What is in the report that the company doesn't want shareholders to see Shareholders have the right by law to access the report - in full and unredacted - and evaluate its conclusions for themselves. The report in question was, according KDG management's comments at the AGM on October 9, sent to KDG by the special auditor on September 29, 2014. After Elliott's lawyers urged management to publish the report and explained possible legal consequences if it failed to do so, KDG management said during the AGM that they would supply the report promptly, without any conditions. In stark contrast to what they committed to do at the AGM, KDG management responded to Elliott's letter with a fax to Elliott's lawyers on October 22 declining to provide the report and only saying that it would be provided. Further delays and/or any edits to the report are, from the view of Elliott, neither in accordance with the law nor acceptable. This assessment was also communicated to KDG with a deadline to supply the full report by October 24, 2014. KDG failed to meet this deadline, which led to Elliott's decision to file its lawsuit with the Munich regional court.
