Hodgson Russ closed a merger transaction on behalf of a long-time, NASDAQ-listed defense and aerospace products manufacturing client. As a result of the merger, the client became a wholly owned subsidiary in a deal valued at approximately $275 million. The closing completed a four-month project in which attorneys from many of our practices contributed in significant ways under intense time pressures and opposite some of the largest firms in the country. Our work included advising our client’s board in connection with its fiduciary duties; negotiating the merger agreement; preparing a proxy statement for the special meeting of shareholders and dealings with the SEC and FINRA; defending the company and the board in two shareholder lawsuits alleging, among other things, breach of fiduciary duty by the board; appearing in federal and state court and ultimately settling the lawsuits; advising management on directors and officers insurance matters; advising the board and management on certain options and other benefit matters; handling HSR filings; and assisting on financing related to the transaction.
