In August 2017, Silver Run II announced that it had entered into an agreement, subject to shareholder approval, to merge with two privately held companies, Alta Mesa Holdings, LP (“Alta Mesa”) and Kingfisher Midstream LLC (“Kingfisher”), in a deal initially valued at $3.8 billion.

According to a complaint filed on January 30, 2019, Silver Run II issued a materially false and misleading Definitive Merger Proxy Statement (the “Proxy”) that recommended shareholders vote in favor of an acquisition. As a result of the false and misleading Proxy, Silver Run II shareholders were unable to make an informed decision on whether or not to redeem their shares and voted in favor of the acquisition on February 6, 2018. The complaint further alleges that subsequent to, and due to the approval of the acquisition, the value of Silver Run II Class A common shares has significantly declined.
