NEW YORK, Jan. 29, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Pomerantz LLP is investigating claims on behalf of investors of Cooper Tire & Rubber Company ("Cooper" or the "Company")(NYSE: CTB). Such investors are advised to contact Robert S. Willoughby at firstname.lastname@example.org or 888-476-6529, ext. 237.
The investigation concerns whether Cooper and certain of its officers and/or directors violated Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.
On October 7, 2013, Cooper filed a Form 8-K with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") which included a press release revealing that the Merger of Cooper and Apollo Tyres Ltd. ("Apollo") was in jeopardy and that Cooper had filed a lawsuit against Apollo in an attempt to force Apollo to close the deal. On November 8, 2013, the Delaware Chancery Court denied Cooper's request for an order requiring Apollo to close on the Merger, holding that Apollo had not breached the Merger agreement.
On this news, Cooper stock fell significantly, falling from $31.27 per share on October 3, 2013, to close at $23.82 per share on November 8, 2013.
