According to the lawsuit, on May 20, 2014, Aeroflex and Cobham plc ("Cobham") announced the signing of a definitive merger agreement pursuant to which Cobham will acquire Aeroflex in a merger valued at roughly $1.46 billion. As a result of the buyout, Aeroflex shareholders are only anticipated to receive $10.50 per share in cash in exchange for each common share of Aeroflex.
The complaint, which was filed on June 3, 2014, notes that Goldman Sachs, who advised Aeroflex on the merger, is a significant shareholder of Aeroflex. Goldman Sachs, along with two private equity firms, Veritas Capital Fund III, L.P. and Golden Gate Private Equity, Inc., who collectively own roughly 64.8% of Aeroflex, have already agreed to vote in favor of the merger. The complaint further alleges that the premium on the consideration that Aeroflex shareholders are receiving is insufficient.
