SHAREHOLDER ALERT: Rigrodsky & Long, P.A. Files Class Action Suit Against West Corporation

/EIN News/ -- WILMINGTON, Del., July 17, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Rigrodsky & Long, P.A.:

Rigrodsky & Long, P.A. announces that it has filed a class action complaint in the United States District Court for the District of Nebraska on behalf of holders of West Corporation (“West”) (Nasdaq:WSTC) common stock in connection with the proposed acquisition of West by affiliates of Apollo Global Management, LLC (collectively, “Apollo”) announced on May 9, 2017 (the “Complaint”).  The Complaint, which alleges violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 against West, its Board of Directors (the “Board”), and Apollo, is captioned Scarantino v. West Corp., Case No. 4:17-cv-03080 (D. Neb.).

If you wish to discuss this action or have any questions concerning this notice or your rights or interests, please contact plaintiff’s counsel, Seth D. Rigrodsky or Gina M. Serra at Rigrodsky & Long, P.A., 2 Righter Parkway, Suite 120, Wilmington, DE 19803, by telephone at (888) 969-4242; by e-mail at info@rl-legal.com, or at http://rigrodskylong.com/contact-us/

On May 9, 2017, West entered into an agreement and plan of merger (the “Merger Agreement”) with Apollo.  Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, shareholders of West will receive $23.50 per share in cash (the “Proposed Transaction”).

Among other things, the Complaint alleges that, in an attempt to secure shareholder support for the Proposed Transaction, defendants issued materially incomplete disclosures in a proxy statement (the “Proxy Statement”) filed with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission on June 15, 2017.  The Complaint alleges that the Proxy Statement, which recommends that West stockholders vote in favor of the Proposed Transaction, omits material information necessary to enable shareholders to make an informed decision as to how to vote on the Proposed Transaction, including material information with respect to West’s financial projections, the analyses performed by West’s financial advisor, and the background of the Proposed Transaction.  The Complaint seeks injunctive and equitable relief and damages on behalf of holders of West common stock. 

If you wish to serve as lead plaintiff, you must move the Court no later than September 15, 2017.  A lead plaintiff is a representative party acting on behalf of other class members in directing the litigation.  Any member of the proposed class may move the Court to serve as lead plaintiff through counsel of their choice, or may choose to do nothing and remain an absent class member.
