The Man Group and GLG Partners have amended their merger agreement to dispose of several lawsuits filed by smaller GLG shareholders.
Under the terms of the new agreement, the break-up fee owed by GLG to Man if the deal falls through has been cut to US$26 million from US$48 million, and the time period covered by the break-up agreement has been reduced from 12 months to nine.
Man is paying $1.6 billion in cash and shares for London-based GLG in a move that is expected to create the world’s largest hedge fund manager, with more than US$60 billion in assets under management.
Three shareholder lawsuits, two filed in New York and one in Delaware, the latter alleging that GLG shareholders were not getting a fair shake in the deal, will be dismissed.
