As previously disclosed, on April 10, 2018, Analogic Corporation (the Company) entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the Merger Agreement) with ANLG Holding Company, Inc. (Parent) and AC Merger Sub, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Parent (Merger Sub), providing for the merger of Merger Sub with and into the Company, with the Company surviving the merger as a wholly-owned subsidiary of Parent (the Merger). Parent and Merger Sub are owned by funds affiliated with Altaris Capital Partners, LLC. The Company is filing this communication to provide certain updates in respect of the Merger. The following information should be read in conjunction with the definitive proxy statement relating to the Merger, filed by the Company with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the SEC) on May 16, 2018, which should be read in its entirety.
Litigation Relating to the Merger
On May 16, 2018, a putative shareholder class action complaint was filed in the United States District Court for the District of Massachusetts against the Company and each member of its board of directors (the Board), captioned Jordan Rosenblatt v. Analogic Corporation et al., C.A. No. 1:18-cv-10988. The complaint alleges, among other things, that the Company and each member of the Board violated federal securities laws and regulations by soliciting shareholder votes in connection with the Merger through a proxy statement that omits material facts and/or contains false and misleading statements. The complaint seeks injunctive and declaratory relief, including declaring that the defendants violated Sections 14(a) and/or 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as well as Rule 14a-9 promulgated thereunder, enjoining defendants from proceeding with the Merger or rescinding it or awarding rescissory damages, to the extent already implemented, and directing the defendants to disseminate a proxy statement that does not contain any untrue statements of material fact and that states all material facts required in it or necessary to make the statements contained therein not misleading. The plaintiff also seeks an award of costs and attorneys fees. The Company believes that the plaintiffs allegations are without merit and intends to defend against them vigorously.
