Kessler Topaz and PGGM Obtain $100 Million Recovery for Hewlett-Packard Investors

We represent Dutch National Pension fund PGGM Vermogensbeheer B.V., in an action against Hewlett-Packard Company (HP) alleging that HP and its officers and directors made false and misleading statements relating to the $11 billion acquisition and value of Autonomy Corporation plc. PGGM alleged, on behalf of the putative class, that the defendants knew or should have known that Autonomy was worth considerably less than the purchase price, and that HP shareholders were harmed by the fraud.  After several years of hard-fought litigation and settlement negotiations, HP agreed to settle the matter for $100 million in cash. The settlement was presented to the Court for preliminary approval on July 17, 2015 and final approval on November 13, 2015. The Court granted both motions and, on each occasion, complimented the terms of the settlement and PGGM's and KTMC's efforts, calling the settlement "an excellent resolution of this case" and "a very good result for their class."
