Juan E. Monteverde, a partner at Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities firm headquartered in New York City, is investigating the Board of Directors of Koppers Holdings Inc. (“Koppers” or the “Company”) (NYSE: KOP) for potential breaches of fiduciary duties in connection with their conduct in seeking shareholders’ approval of the amended and restated 2005 Long Term Incentive Plan.
Specifically, in the Proxy Statement filed by the Company with the Securities and Exchange Commission on March 27, 2014, the Board of Directors recommends that Koppers’s shareholders vote to approve the amended and restated 2005 Long Term Incentive Plan to increase the number of shares of the common stock by 700,000. The issuance of the additional shares could have a substantial dilutive effect on the shares of Koppers common stock.
