WeissLaw is investigating whether Carbon Black's Board acted to maximize shareholder value prior to entering into the acquisition agreement. Notably, the Company recently announced double-digit growth in three key metrics in the second quarter of 2019. It reported total revenue of $60.9 million, up 19% from the previous year, cloud revenue of $22.9 million, up 68% from the previous year, and cloud ARR of over $100 million, up 66% from the previous year.
Given these facts, WeissLaw is investigating whether Carbon Black's Board conducted a fair process in agreeing to the proposed acquisition, whether the proposed acquisition undervalues the Company, and whether all material information related to the proposed acquisition is fully and fairly disclosed.
WeissLaw LLP has litigated hundreds of stockholder class and derivative actions for violations of corporate and fiduciary duties. We have recovered over a billion dollars for defrauded clients and obtained important corporate governance relief in many of these cases.
