Notice is hereby given that Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP has filed a class action lawsuit in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York, Case No. 1:19-cv-08677-VM, which on September 20, 2019 was consolidated into No. 1:19-cv-08064-VM, on behalf of shareholders of Carrizo Oil & Gas, Inc. (“Carrizo” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ:CRZO) who have been harmed by Carrizo’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 Callon Petroleum Company (“Callon”) (the “Proposed Transaction”).
On July 14, 2019, the Board caused the Company to enter into an agreement and plan of merger under which Carrizo shareholders stand to receive 2.05 shares of Callon common stock for each share of Carrizo stock they own.
The complaint alleges that the Proxy 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 about the Company and the Proposed Transaction, including information concerning the Company’s financial projections and analysis, on which the Board relied to recommend the Proposed Transaction as fair to Carrizo shareholders.
If you wish to obtain information concerning this action, you can do so by completing the form below.
If you wish to serve as lead plaintiff, you must move the Court no later November 25, 2019. Any member of the putative 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.
Carrizo Oil & Gas, Inc. (CRZO)
