Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP Announces Filing of a Class Action Lawsuit Against Bemis Company, Inc. (BMS)
Notice is hereby given that a class action lawsuit was filed in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York, Case No. 1:19-cv-03356-PGG, on behalf of shareholders of Bemis Company, Inc. (“BMS” or the “Company”) (NYSE:BMS) who have been harmed by the Company’s and its board of directors’ (the “Board”) alleged violations of Sections 14(a) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”) in connection with the proposed merger of the Company with Amcor Limited to form New Amcor.
On August 6, 2018, the Board caused the Company to enter into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (“Merger”) under which BMS shareholders will have the right to receive 5.1 shares of common stock of New Amcor for each share of BMS stock they own. On March 27, 2019, BMS filed a Proxy Statement on Form DEFM 14A to solicit shareholders to vote in favor of the Merger.
The complaint alleges that the Form DEFM14A filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission violates Sections 14(a) and 20(a) of the Exchange Act because it provides materially incomplete and misleading information or omits material information about the Company and the Merger, including information concerning the Company’s financial projections and analysis, on which the Board relied to recommend the Proposed Transaction as fair to BMS shareholders.
