KSF Appointed Lead Counsel in Helen Moore v. Macquarie Infrastructure and Real Assets

Helen Moore, et al v. Macquarie Infrastructure and Real Assets, et al. No. 251,417. On September 9, 2019, Hon. Patricia Koch, District Judge for the Ninth Judicial District Court for the Parish of Rapides, State of Louisiana, appointed KSF as co-lead counsel for the class. The class representatives allege that Defendants, the former Board of Directors of Cleco Corporation, breached their fiduciary duties in connection with the sale of Cleco to an investment consortium by, inter alia, failing to maximize the consideration that Cleco shareholders would receive in the transaction, and by making misleading statements and failing to disclose material information regarding a conflicted sales process in the definitive proxy statement filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission thereby resulting in a shareholder vote on the transaction that was not fully informed.
