A Shareholder Sues Compuware Corporation to Halt $2.5 Billion Sale

A Compuware shareholder is seeking a class action lawsuit against the software supplier and others alleging its directors breached fiduciary duties at shareholders' expense in a proposed $2.5 billion sale of the company. The 27-page lawsuit was filed on September 11, 2014 by shareholder David D. Essig in Oakland Circuit Court. The lawsuit claims Compuware's board of directors - all individually named as defendants - have an obligation to obtain high value reasonably available for shareholders. If a transaction results in any change of corporate control, then shareholders are entitled to get a significant premium. But instead, the lawsuit alleges the board conspired with or aided and abetted Thoma Bravo, the private equity investment firm that agreed on Sept. 2 to acquire Detroit-based Compuware, Project Copper Holdings, Elliott Associates and others to arrive at an unfair process and unfair price for company shares. The lawsuit seeks to rescind the merger, or any terms of it that have been implemented, until all those involved "implement a fair procedure or process to sell the company. It also seeks that all the defendants be directed to exercise fiduciary duties in the best interest of shareholders and to be awarded all attorney costs, expert fees and other relief where appropriate. In its request to be approved as a class action claim, the suit notes the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission filings state there are more than 220 million shares of Compuware common stock outstanding, held by hundreds if not thousands of shareholders across the U.S. The complaint said the proposed buyout price of $10.92 per share in the merger agreement "drastically undervalues" the company's prospects and represents a "meager 8% premium to Compuware's average stock price in the last year and represents a negative premium to its 52-week high." The stock has traded as high as $11.39 this past December and the $10.92 buyout price is well below a "recent analyst target of $13.00 per share," the suit says. The complaint claims rather than "standing tall" against proposals made by Elliott Associates, a New York hedge fund company, the Compuware board "caved in" to pressure and threats against the company made by Elliott, which owns about 9.5% of Compuware stock. T he motive, according to the complaint, is that securing a sale to a private equity firm "typically retains companies' existing leadership." Compuware management will actually stand to benefit from sale of the company at an unfair price," according to the lawsuit.
