NEW YORK, June 18, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Notice is hereby given that Monteverde & Associates PC has filed a class action lawsuit in the United States District Court for The Northern District of California, 5:18-cv-03542-EMC, on behalf of public common unitholders of Financial Engines, Inc, (“Financial Engines ” or the “Company”) (NasdaqGS: FNGN) who held Financial Engines securities and have been harmed by Financial Engines and its board of directors’ (the “Board”) for alleged violations of Sections 14(a) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”) in connection with the sale of the Company to Edelman Financial, L.P.
Pursuant to the terms of the Merger Agreement, each outstanding share of Financial Engines common stock will be converted into the right to receive $45.00 per share in cash, without interest and subject to required withholding taxes. The board have failed to disclose material information that is necessary for stockholders to properly assess the fairness of the Proposed Merger, thereby rendering certain statements in the Proxy incomplete and misleading. In particular, the Proxy contains materially incomplete and misleading information concerning: (i) financial projections for Financial Engines; (ii) the valuation analyses performed by Financial Engines’ financial advisor, Sandler O’Neill & Partners, L.P. (“Sandler”) in support of its fairness opinion; and (iii) the background process leading up to the Proposed Transaction.
The complaint alleges that this offer is inadequate and alleges that the Registration Statement in Form 14A (the “Proxy”) provides materially incomplete and misleading information about the Company’s financials and the transaction, in violation of Sections 14(a) and 20(a) of the Exchange Act.
If you wish to serve as lead plaintiff, you must move the Court no later than 60 days from today. 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.
