Delaware Court Denies Plaintiffs' Attempt to Enjoin Transaction
Board of Directors Urges Comverge Stockholders to Tender Their Shares Into H.I.G. Capital Offer—Tender Offer Expires Tonight at Midnight
NORCROSS, Ga., May 8, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Comverge, Inc. (Nasdaq:COMV) ("Comverge") today announced that the Delaware Court of Chancery has ruled in favor of Comverge, its Board of Directors and H.I.G. Capital, L.L.C. at a preliminary injunction hearing in a class action suit challenging the pending transaction between Comverge and H.I.G. Capital. The Court denied Plaintiffs' Motion for Preliminary Injunction in its entirety after determining that Plaintiffs failed to demonstrate a reasonable likelihood of succeeding on the merits of their claim that the Comverge directors breached their fiduciary duties and that H.I.G. aided and abetted any breach of fiduciary duties.
"We're pleased that the Court has rejected Plaintiffs' arguments regarding the process the Board has undertaken throughout our liquidity challenge in determining to not enjoin the H.I.G. transaction. In turn, we will continue on the path towards closing the transaction with H.I.G.," said Alec Dreyer, Comverge's Chairman of the Board of Directors. "The H.I.G. Capital transaction is the culmination of an extensive review of financing and strategic alternatives to maximize value for Comverge stockholders. If the H.I.G. Capital transaction is not successfully completed, stockholders' existing investment in Comverge may be at serious risk and, while the outcome is uncertain, there is a growing probability as time passes that they may end up receiving nothing for their shares. Our Board of Directors believes that the transaction with H.I.G. Capital is in the best interests of our stockholders and strongly recommends that the stockholders tender their shares into the offer immediately, as the tender offer is scheduled to close tonight at midnight."
Upon the successful closing of the tender offer, stockholders of Comverge will receive $1.75 in cash for each share of the common stock of the Company tendered in the offer, without interest and less any applicable withholding taxes. Following completion of the tender offer, pursuant to the terms of the merger agreement, H.I.G. Capital expects to complete a second-step merger in which any remaining common shares of Comverge will be converted into the right to receive the same per share price paid in the offer.
Completion of the transaction is subject to customary conditions, including, but not limited to, a majority of the outstanding shares of common stock having been validly tendered and not withdrawn prior to the expiration of the tender offer. The tender offer is not subject to any financing condition.
The tender offer and withdrawal rights are scheduled to expire at midnight, New York City time, at the end of the day on May 8, 2012, unless extended or earlier terminated.
