WILMINGTON, Del., Oct. 07, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Rigrodsky & Long, P.A. announces that it has filed a class action complaint in the United States District Court for the District of Delaware on behalf of holders of Gannett Co., Inc. (“Gannett”) (NYSE: GCI) common stock in connection with the proposed acquisition of Gannett by New Media Investment Group Inc. (“New Media”), Artic Holdings LLC (“Intermediate HoldCo”), and Arctic Acquisition Corp. (“Merger Sub”) announced on August 5, 2019 (the “Complaint”).  The Complaint, which alleges violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 against Gannett, its Board of Directors (the “Board”), New Media, Intermediate HoldCo, and Merger Sub, is captioned Scarantino v. Gannett Co., Inc., Case No. 1:19-cv-01740 (D. Del.).

If you wish to discuss this action or have any questions concerning this notice or your rights or interests, please contact plaintiff’s counsel, Seth D. Rigrodsky or Gina M. Serra at Rigrodsky & Long, P.A., 300 Delaware Avenue, Suite 1220, Wilmington, DE 19801, by telephone at (888) 969-4242, by e-mail at info@rl-legal.com, or at http://rigrodskylong.com/contact-us/

On August 5, 2019, Gannett entered into an agreement and plan of merger (the “Merger Agreement”) with New Media, Intermediate HoldCo, and Merger Sub.  Pursuant to the terms of the Merger Agreement, shareholders of Gannett will receive $6.25 in cash and 0.5427 shares of New Media common stock per share (the “Proposed Transaction”).

Among other things, the Complaint alleges that, in an attempt to secure shareholder support for the Proposed Transaction, defendants issued materially incomplete disclosures in a Form S-4 Registration Statement (the “Registration Statement”) filed with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission.  The Complaint alleges that the Registration Statement omits material information with respect to, among other things, the Company’s and New Media’s financial projections and the analyses performed by Gannett’s financial advisors. The Complaint seeks injunctive and equitable relief and damages on behalf of holders of Gannett common stock. 

If you wish to serve as lead plaintiff, you must move the Court no later than December 6, 2019.  A lead plaintiff is a representative party acting on behalf of other class members in directing the litigation.  Any member of the proposed 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.
