Court Of Chancery Upholds Stockholder Representative Standing
Posted In Class Actions
Coughlan v. NXP B.V. , C.A. 5110-CC (April 15, 2010)
When a payout in an M&A deal is dependent on post closing events, somehow the former stockholders must be represented if there are to be any adjustments. Appointment of a stockholder representative is often done for that purpose. Here the Court held that the stockholder representative may also sue to enforce the rights of a class of stockholders to such payments.
