NEW YORK, Nov. 13, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Notice is hereby given that Monteverde & Associates PC has filed a class action lawsuit in the United States District Court for The Southern District of Texas, case no. 4:17-cv-03252, on behalf of shareholders of Calpine Corporation ("Calpine" or the "Company") (NYSE: CPN) who held Calpine securities and have been harmed by Calpine and its board of directors' alleged violations of Sections 14(a) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the "Exchange Act") in connection with the merger of the Company to Energy Capital Partners (the "Proposed Merger").
Under the terms of the merger agreement, Calpine shareholders will receive $15.25 in cash in exchange for each share of Calpine. The complaint alleges that the Proposed Merger is unfair to Calpine shareholders and that the preliminary proxy statement regarding the Proposed Merger (the "Proxy") provides materially incomplete and misleading information about the Company's and Energy Capital's financials and the fairness of the Proposed Merger, 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.
