Knight Capital (NYSE:KCG) Sues by Shareholder Over $3.75 Per Share Getco Takeover Offer – GFIG, FXCM, GCAP

Knight Capital Group Inc (NYSE:KCG), based in Jersey City, New Jersey, was prosecuted by an investor who contends the security is undervalued in a $3.75 per share acquisition by Chicago-based trader Getco LLC.

Shareholder Ann Jimenez McMillan reported in a Delaware Chancery Court complaint made public on Monday that Directors of Knight, the trading company that closely avoided bankruptcy current year after computer errors, are duty-bound to look for the best price for corporation shares and “locked-up” the Getco agreement in breach of those duties.

The plaintiff’s lawyers reported in court papers that the price is unfair and grossly inadequate, and will reject investors their right to share proportionately and equitably in the true value of the corporation’s valuable and profitable unit, and future expansion.
