Under the terms of the transaction, CEC shareholders will receive $54.00 for each share of CEC stock they own. The transaction has a total approximate value of $1.3 billion, including the assumption of debt. The Board of CEC has also adopted a Shareholder Rights Plan pursuant to which shareholders may buy one ten-thousandth of a share of junior participating preferred stock at a purchase price of $54.00 per Right if a person or group acquires 10% or more of the Company's common stock. The claims concern whether the CEC Board breached their fiduciary duties to stockholders by failing to adequately shop the Company before agreeing to enter into this transaction, and whether Apollo Global Management, LLC is underpaying for CEC shares.
