Court Of Chancery Admits Post-Signing Evidence

Posted In Appraisal

In re Appraisal of Jarden Corporation, C.A. 12456-VCS (September 7, 2018)

Appraisal cases often must deal with whether to admit evidence that deals with post-merger events. The argument is that those events show whether the predictions of future earnings are accurate measures of value. This decision deals with post-signing evidence but is nonetheless instructive of the Court’s general willingness to give such evidence the weight it deserves all things considered.
