Pursuant to the terms of the Merger, which was unanimously approved by the Board, each issued and outstanding share of WhiteWave common stock will be cancelled and automatically converted into the right to receive $56.25 in cash. The complaint claims that this offer is inadequate in light of the Company's financial performance and strong growth prospects in recent quarters.
The complaint alleges that the Schedule 14A Proxy Statement (the "Proxy") filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") on July 29, 2016 provides materially incomplete and misleading information about the Company and the Proposed Transaction, in violation of Sections 14(a) and 20(a) of the Exchange Act. The Proxy fails to provide WhiteWave's shareholders with material information concerning the financial and procedural fairness of the Proposed Transaction.
