How Investors Are Letting Billions Slip Through Their Fingers in Delaware Appraisal Actions

Investors are leaving billions of dollars on the table in Delaware appraisal actions. With over 160 mergers and consolidations eligible for appraisal each year, it is critical to implement a process to identify opportunities where your firm may be underpaid for its shares.

Appraisal Rights ReportIn May, the Delaware Chancery Court issued its opinion in the Dell appraisal case, valuing the company’s common stock at 28% more than the $13.75 paid to shareholders on October 29, 2013. In other words, investors were underpaid by about $6 billion in the deal. Despite the magnitude of Dell’s underpayment, Dell is only paying $37 million to a handful of investors. Why? Most investors have failed to timely exercise their appraisal rights before the vote on the deal, are now ineligible for payments and have consequently left $5.96 billion on the table.
