Hawkes v. The Toronto-Dominion Bank, et al.
TD Ameritrade Holding Corporation agreed to pay $31.5 million to settle a securities class action lawsuit accusing the Company of breaching fiduciary duties in the merger process.
The original complaint alleged that during the merger between CSC and TD Ameritrade Holding Corporation that TD Bank and its Leaders breached their fiduciary duties in connection with the Merger, and that CSC aided and abetted such breaches.
Further damaged investors alleged that TD Bank breached its fiduciary duties as Ameritrade’s controlling stockholder by conditioning its support for the Merger on receiving a non rateable benefit from the acquirer, CSC, through an amended “insured deposit account agreement” between the post-Merger company and TD Bank.
Also, the complaint alleged that the Merger’s process and price were unfair because TD Bank allegedly usurped, and Ameritrade’s special committee allegedly ceded, responsibility for negotiating the Amended IDA Agreement, which allegedly was traded off for potential additional consideration that could have been received by all Ameritrade stockholders.
